Metway Series 166ALCG/VLCG 3 pole plug and socket connector leads are primarily intended for use with lighting equipment, where limited access requires the use of low profile mouldings.

They have an extended earth plug fitted as standard and covers are ultrasonically welded preventing access to terminals.

Starter leads are socket to free end, spider leads are plug to free end and extender leads are plug to socket.

They can be connected & disconnected under load in accordance with VDE 0627.
