Series dash plug

Wtb a series dash plug. I would like the part that is plugged into the dash. I have the red and black round holes in the dash but want to use them to power up a xm radio.

Look up one for an MGTD.
Who knows why, but they are the same plug and generally more common here in the US.

When we imported our MGYB in the 70s, it came with a small 12V tea pot that plugged into the dash and 2 suction cup defrosters for the windscreen. One year at the Beaulieu autojumble saw some 12V irons with the same plug to press your clothes off the 12V dash socket power source. No wonder all those older vehicles had starting handles (hand cranks)... a 12V iron would probably run the battery flat, but your shirt and trousers would look creased.

I know I am able to find them in the UK and at Rovers North but at $47 I would like to find one a little cheaper. I really don't want to mount a 12v socket to or on the dash as I want a clean look. I thought it was worth a try.
Robert I have seen irons like the ones you mentioned. I wondered what they plugged into. I have never forgotten about that and now I know. I don't know about you but it is those strange things that keep me awake at night. Drives me crazy!!

I would like to find an inspection light like that for my truck. I see them on Ebay UK once and a while.

I like this idea and would like to do this too, but be careful of putting too much load on the existing wiring. If you are going to re-wire the connectors I think you'll be fine

Looks like a regular dual banana plug may fit?

At a buck and a half each, it's worth a try... nice find.

Or two singles if you want to eliminate issues with the distance between the posts. The only issue then is the diameter and length of the pins.

Please let us know how it goes if you get some.

Just as I thought, the banana is too big. A real shame too as they would have been perfect.
