    AC adaptor plug plates (need US/have UK?/AU?) See photo

    I recently purchased a Duet which didn't come with US adaptor plates. See photo. I just need US plates (I can buy a full set on amazon or ebay, but am not a World traveler). Anyone got a a couple they'd sell or trade for what I have? I assume the plates are compatible with Boom, Radio, etc, but I don't know. Thanks in advance!

    And here I sit is SA and require the Euro-Adaptor base-plate, the two-pin one below the 3-pin square pin UK one! I have at least one US base-plate, perhaps two, currently using one of them with an International Adaptor but it is clumsy.

    Shipping would kill the deal however.

    What do you suppose shipping would be USA to SA? Two EA for Two US.

    if I understand correctly, you have the Europe and UK plug plates, but need the US plug plate. An easy option is to convert the Europe plug to US plug.
    This should do it, and likely be cheaper than shipping from South Africa.

    Once upon a time I was a world traveler (work, little pleasure) and became an aficionado of plug adaptors. I mostly needed ones specific to particular international locations, but on occasion we hosted meetings with people from all over and I needed adaptors to allow them to use their devices with North American outlets. The most useful of the latter I ever used was this one. It's a universal type, you can plug it into North American outlets, and then plug whatever you have into it. I believe it even works with the angled plugs, and certainly with the UK and European ones illustrated above.

    Only downside is that they are kind of obtrusive if visible, as they stick out of the wall. But out of sight they are perfect. Not sure where to get them, I think I got mine at some sort of specialty travel store, years ago.

    Thank you Paul. That seems like the best solution. However, if anyone has a couple of of the US plates, I'm still interested.

    I ordered these from amazon. When I get them and verify that they work, I'll report back here.

    Sounds good! I took the US adapter plate off one my SB Radios and it was stamped "17 RPA" on the back side. I did a google image search for "17 RPA Adapter" and the image from the Amazon link above was one of the first few pics returned from the search. Besides visually looking like a match, the model number listed on the Amazon product page is "RPA" which is what led me to make the statement: "I think these will work..."

    Hopefully they do!
