Still got some, somewhere I think.
I do believe that the fuse being used as the live pin, was in fact the very first plug top attempt at a fused plug top, note "I did say I believe so it is possible that someone, Lucien may be, may know different"

think you may be right pete. can't think of anything earlier with plug fuses. the biggest problem with the fused pin arrangement was getting the bugger back in the socket with silver foil out of a fag packet round it.

Worst problem, was when the fused pin came undone and stayed in the socket.

Anyone remember that multi plug...…..Change the pins, 13amp, 15amp round pin or 5amp round pin. Move the face about and slide out and twist the required pins into place. I'm sure I've still got one, somewhere. Loads of properties being worked on in the seventies used to have round pin plugs.
edit..…….round pin SOCKETS

remember them.bet they'd not get a BS or a CE certification these days.
 
Plugs with fused pins are still used quite a lot at power stations. 110v Reyrolle plugs. They are available with either single or double fused pins.

Fitall plugs! Brilliant invention!
DS plugs also had a version with fused pins on L and N. John Ward again:



and as I mentioned in another thread, the Wylex ones ran vibrators and baby cookers

They were plugs. The tops were never fused.
