RS branded rubber DuraplugRubber 13A BS1363 Duraplug with RS logo This is one of the earliest rubber duraplugs available. As well as having the wrap over rubber lid, this base itself is also made out of soft rubber - unlike my other example which has a hard plastic base.


Inside a rubber BS1363 Duraplug with white lid branded RS This version usually bends and contorts out of shape. The wrap over top is usually cut where the fitter forgets to put the cable through first. This was on a piece of education equipment so would have been wired by a familiar user in a technical department.

It is branded RS 'Radio Spares' - a still common supplier to the mainly electronics industry.

Inside the lid we read 'W.Haffenden, Sandwich, Kent' - the original trading company of Duraplug.
