This is listing is for one (1) highest quality female socket. The socket is marine grade and is weather and UV resistant. The contacts are nickel plated brass and the socket body is heavy nylon plastic. The socket is vibration resistant, unlike less expensive versions. The socket has a waterproof tight fitting opening sealing cap on a flexible strap. The socket has two female 0.250 male spade type terminals that are marked (+) and minus (-) for easy identification. The socket is rated for 15 amps at 12 volts. Draws no power when not in use, so it can't run down your battery.
It requires an 1 1/8" hole for mounting and has .250 quick spade type male connectors. It can be mounted against a panel with the retaining nut on panels up to 1-1/4" thick. For a thicker panel use the included compression plate which keeps the socket in place from the front on a panel of any thickness.
Works with any standard cigarette lighter plug or lockable marine plug. Check my other auction if you need a locking plug or a right angle mount. A locking plug looks like a regular male lighter plug but when twisted in this socket can not be pulled out easily, unless twisted again. It is then weather resistant and vibration proof.
Not for hot cigarette lighter plug use.
Socket options you can add to your installation. See Socket Accessories:
-Add illumination to the interior of the socket. The socket will glow with the desired LED color. Indicates power is on and helps at night. Available in white, green, red, blue and yellow (your choice).
-Add a socket boot to increase the weather resistance of the socket. The boot covers the wire contacts and has an exit for the wires.
-UPGRADE option for your socket cap / lid/ cover for extreme weather or high vibration conditions. You will receive the socket cap that will have a metal insert installed that allows the cap to fit tightly in the socket for severe and harsh conditions.
-Add a USB charger adapter and universal USB connector waterproof vinyl boot. The adapter plugs into your socket to allow you to plug in your USB charger, and the boot slides over your USB cable connector to protect the connection from water intrusion and failure.
-Add a vinyl plug boot to make the plug socket combination more waterproof. When using a 12 volt plug and socket combination outdoors, there is a gap between the socket and the plug that is susceptible to water entry. The plug boot slides over any cigarette lighter plug or accessory plug. When the plug is inserted into the power outlet / socket, the boot presses up against the socket surface and forms a seal. No more blown fuses or intermittent operation.
-Add a fuse holder to your socket installation. Always connect the socket to your battery with a fuse in between. This listing is for an inline waterproof fuse holder and a 15 amp ATO fuse.
-Add a high quality smart 12 volt trickle charger that plugs into your socket. It will keep your battery a full charge when it is not in use. The charger plugs into the wall and has a 10 ft cord with a 12 volt lighter style plug with a weather proof boot. You can charge your battery outside.
-Add a rubber occlusive sealing socket washer. Makes an extra waterproof seal when mounting the socket against a panel. The washer goes between the socket flange or nut, and the panel to seal the assembly.
-Add wires with a fused 60 inch (5ft) wire harness to your socket assembly. The harness comes with of a fuse holder and fuse, and red and black wire connectors to attach to your socket and battery.
-Add a double mounting plate. Allows you to mount two socket products side by side for a professional installation.
