Yellow "Commando" plugs and trailing sockets?

Recommended Posts

I need a pair of yellow (they have to be the yellow ones) Commando plug / trailing sockets. They're normally used for 110V tools.

 

Anyone seen them retail in/around BKK?

 

These:-

I didn’t look in that section on this visit but seem to remember seeing them in HardwareHouse last time I went there. A phone call may help.

I shall get a Thai speaker to call, they only show the blue and red ones on the website.

 

I need them so there's no possibility that they will mate with anything else around the house.

I think that there are a lot of items they have in store that don’t show on the website.
 

If your need is not at all urgent I can pop a few in my bag when I come back from the UK though it will be a couple of months before that happens.

Agreed, the nearest store is a bit far to visit on the off-chance.

 

No worries, I just need something about 16A that won't get accidentally plugged elsewhere, AliExpress is probably my friend.

Couple of Aussie plugs? Or more correctly Aussie plug and socket.

They would work.

 

I ended up getting a pair of red 4-pin (3-phase + E) 16A, if we ever get 3-phase I'll have to change them.

Let me know. I looked for those too.

I want to use it for the DC system and low watt emergency system,

not want to use the blue as I already use those here.

Funny 🙂 Have those in use as isolated island plug for the bench.

Found those abandoned Aussie PC cables at the shopping mall for 15thb each, and the socket from the homepro expo.

Wilco.

 

I ended up getting a pair of red 3P+E 16A beasties, same size as the yellow ones and sufficiently different from anything we already have, from MegaHome.

 

This chap and his associated trailing outlet.

For future reference, I always head to Khlong Thom whenever looking for obscure electrical parts and pieces.

If you dont mind waiting for a few weeks for postage, try ebay.  I had some aussie appliances and ended up buying switchable wall sockets.
