Discuss What's a Plug Socket ?? in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Just wanted to get something off my chest......
Don't you hate it when a customer asks...can I have an extra Plug Socket.
What the hell is a plug socket???
I know a (domestic) plug is typically a 3 pin plug conforming to BS1363, and I know that a (domestic) socket is typically the type we all see on the walls in our homes that accepts the BS1363 plug.
BUT WHAT IS A PLUG SOCKET???
Is it just me who's gears grind whenever I hear that phrase?

You must remember Kevin, many homeowners haven't completed the mandatory 5 week course to become an Electrician

I thought "them things" were sockets....just sockets....not plug sockets!
I was hoping someone would complain about my 'ring main' comment, when I should have put 'Ring Final Circuit' :)

You think that's annoying, half the customers round here call sockets 'plugs'.
You are lucky some of em round here call a switch a socket.

Yes I had a Diesel shower in Cyprus once, b---dy Muppet Diesel fitter.

We don't rise to that kind of provocation. Anyhow you cant initialise the correct terms and keep them discrete.

We need a convention?

RiFC for a ring main?

RaFC for a radial?

BULBS on the other hand:mad:
