Two Pins

These two pin plugs are unpolarised, meaning they can be inserted into the socket either way round. There is no provision for any earth connection.

Although similar in size to the three pin BS546 plugs, the pin spacing is different, making it impossible to use one of these two pin plugs in a 3 pin socket.
