16A European socket to UK 13A plug extension lead (ideal for garden heaters)

  • Sale
  • Regular price £11.99


Due to the demand for outdoor heaters, some are now being supplied with a European CEE 7/7 two pin plug, which is used across Europe and parts of Scandinavia as it fits both the German Schuko (side earth contacts) and French (earth pin) type of sockets.

To comply with the UK Plugs and Socket Regulations, these must be supplied with an adaptor. The issue is that the adaptor then means that the plug won't allow the lid on the outside socket to close and they are prone to over heating.

You can simply overcome the issue without cutting of the plug and risking potentially voiding the warranty, using our European adaptor. If the supplied cable is too short, then this extension lead connects to the 2 pin European plug on the heater, providing an extension and adaptor in one. Perfect for outdoor heaters.

As the heater will be connected to a 13A plug, it is important to check that the heater is rated at less than 2,990w. European appliances can use up to 3,600w as European sockets are rated at 16A - this will overload a UK socket.

Available without an RCD, plug RCD or an in-line RCD (weatherproof IP66 rated for use outside). See our guide on whether you need an RCD, and if so, which type to chose.
