    Default UK 13a mains plug for large cables - any suggestions???

    Hi, I've made up various mains cables for my kit using a mixture of Kimber crystal 24 and also some cheaper yarbo woven cable.
    I been terminating the iec end with either mid quality watt gate iec on the Kimber cable or cheapo copy iec on the yarbo cable mainly because the inlet and clamp terminals are of a suitable size.

    At the mains outlet end, I've been using clipsal IP56 plugs again, they are large enough to accept the rather large cable, but they are no longer available. I realise there are several high end options available, but I just wondered if anyone was aware of a cheaper option on the lower grade cables I've made?? Hopefully the pics will show what I'm on about

    I can only think of the Furutech plugs!

    I have a few new ones that I never got around to doing anything with.
    send a message if interested.

    The only other large size are the Furutech FI-1363.
    The straight FI-363 are more robust than the angled furutechs.

    I think the better cables like the kimber probably warrant the furutech but maybe not the yarbo ones.

    I've sent a PM mark cheers ;-)
