Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable simple RCD adaptor My previous RCD was exactly the same model as this one. Old one failed after more than 20 years use. Very easy to use, and reliable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Master plug rcd Plug has to much surface scratches and dents to be sold as new. All the pin heads have marks like they have been used for months. Orange light is not so orange. But overall it does work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Masterplug RCD breaker I had to return this product as the reset button would not stick in. The new one works but the reset button is not so 'positive' click on. I would not purchase this product again .... would 'go' for something else.

can i plug this into a internal socket then plug a multiple socket with a tumble dryer and a washing machine connected to it is this safe ?

Asked by: suedeapple
Hi suedeapple, As long as you don't overload the extension lead or RCD Adaptor, so not running any more than 13A (3120W, 3.12kW) through the adaptor at any one time, then you will be fine.

Can I use this to plug in a Hotpoint stainless steel fridge/freezer?

I'm waiting to have an RCD fuse box fitted and I'm concerned about continuing to use my Hotpoint fridge/freezer without any kind of RCD protection. Can I use this RCD plug in the meantime to plug in my fridge/freezer?
Asked by: littlewren
Hi littlewren, As long as you don't overload the RCD then you can basically plug in what you like, but it is worth noting that these are `active' or not mechanically latched which means that in the event of any power cut they will trip and require human intervention to reset them before the fridge freezer will be powered again (which will not be the case with a consumer unit based RCD).

Test and reset

Hi, I am planning on running a pond pump plugged into this RCD and then into the mains socket In the house. It states on the RCD to test before use but as the pump is on continuously how often would you recommend I test the RCD? Thanks Lee
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Leeroy, Realistically there is only a standard test cycle for consumer unit RCDs, which is currently recommended to be once every 6 months. If you don't feel like testing it that often then as long as you are not regularly standing in the pond or reaching in with bare hands then you could extend this to whatever duration you feel comfortable with.

would this be wise to use on aircon

have a portable aircon would this make it safer to use?
Asked by: fenric
No aircon manufacturer is going to make an appliance which might be dangerous enough to require an external RCD in normal use, however, if you have an unsupervised aircon unit in a room which might suddenly experience a flash flood of several inches, this adaptor might then be useful.

Pond filter pump and water feature

I have a pond filter and pump connected to a socket in my shed will these be a good to have connected and would it stop the electricity passing through if the cable on filter or pump was damaged Or the filter unit itself Thanks
Asked by: Danny00023
Hi Danny00023, As long as the adaptor is not overloaded, and a pond filter and pump are unlikely to be drawing anywhere near 3kW each, then they will be fine to use with out RCD Adaptors. The function of an RCD is to cut the flow of power if there is an imbalance of flow between Live and Neutral, basically if power is leaking out of the circuit, on the presumption that this could be a person getting a shock (but there can be faults which do not cause an imbalance and so would not necessarily be detected by an RCD)
