Adapters were commonly used to power many electrical appliances such as radio's, electric fires and lamps all from the domestic lighting circuit.
This was mainly due to most home only having electricity for lighting before other appliances became commonplace and the introduction of the UK wiring standards.
We do not advise using these to power other appliances but they are still perfect for splitting outlets for additional lighting such as festoons or simple extensions to existing ceiling lights.
Having cleaned, stripped, rebuilt and fully tested they are ready for stylish redeployment in your home.
This model is switched, has locking B22 nuts and the bottom outlet has a shade ring.
