When is it required to replace plug tops or sockets?


Plug top or extension socket replacement is required when either are damaged and are replaced with a new compliant plug or socket. Faulty plug tops or extension sockets are found when a visual inspection is performed prior to any electrical test. If a visual inspection finds a plug or socket has discoloured due to overheating or pins are loose, corroded or burnt due to arcing or if internal leads are exposed, a new transperant plug or socket is fitted.
