Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality trailer plug This is a high quality 13 pin modern converter plug which is used to swop your old caravan or trailer plugs over to modern car fittings. However...... The only instructions provided are wiring related. The first problem I found is I couldn't get into the fitting to make the connections. Eventually I worked out the end nearest the cable entry unscrews to allow access to the connectors. The second problem was that the grommet supplied was too big for my single cable entry from my trailer. Clearly it is designed for a much thicker or duel cables from a Caravan that has the full 13 cables connections. This is a little narrow sighted I think from the manufacturers. It would cover for all eventualities if it had two grommets of different sizes. As it was, I used amalgamating tape to create my own water tight seal. The connectors seemed good quality and the cable was easy to connect. Still recommended despite the grommet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Bought this to fit to replace the old 9 pin plug on my trailer as I've changed car and the new one has a 13 pin euro socket. It's straight forward to wire but I got pins 3&4 mixed up, which resulted in the lights behaving strangely to start with. There is no clear diagram on the packaging and the marking of these two is ambiguous, so take care and look at wiring diagrams for it on line. Also the grommet is for a large diameter cable with 13 wires in it. I wrapped self amalgamating tape around the cable to get a good fit - any tape would probably do it. Once that was done it works fine. If its wasn't for these niggles it would have got 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality and cheap The 13 pin plug was used to convert an existing 7pin lead to suit a 13pin socket. The plug is reasonable quality, easy to wire up but extra packing (piece if rubber tubing) was needed to give a tight grip for the sealing gland as the 7 pin wire was too small a diameter. Too early to say how long it will last but I'm hopeful that it will survive ocassional use for many years.

How robust are they?

Are there any regular users of this product (MP128) who can comment on how it stands up to everyday use? I've had problems with plastic plugs from other suppliers
