Need a new plug

Posted by Kat Timms, on
Hi. I need to change a plug on a device. The device has a plug with 3 metal pins. All my other devices have 2 metal and 1 plastic. Do I need to to replace it with 3 metal pins or will 2 metal and 1 plastic be ok. Thank you

It depends on the device. I would replace with a 3 metal pin plug which will ensure you have the earth.

What would you like to do now?
