Eriba Cigarette Socket plug wont fit!

Good morning to all I bought a 12v tv and sent for a cigarette lighter plug to fit what I thought was a normal cigarette socket. I went to try the tv with the adapter and the cigarette plug will not fit the eriba puck socket. The puck is year 2000 is there another size of cigarette plug which is smaller to fit the eriba socket.

I have two standard type 3 pin sockets and two cigarette type sockets in the puck and wanted to use one of these cigarette type sockets to free up the two normal 3 pin sockets.

That's strange Steve. We use the "cigarette socket" on our '99 Troll for the tyre pump and we've used several different ones in our time and all fitted without any bother

I had the same problem when trying to use my tyre pump from the 12v socket in the van and ended up buying an adaptor to convert from UK to Continental spec. Like this 12v Socket adapter

Finally got it working then burned out the fuse in the BIP so now only use the car socket for the pump.

This is what you need.

Keeps your calves shapely, and matches your car. What's not to like?

Problem is, I ended up with one shapely and one scrawny calf. With the electric pump both calves might be scrawny but at least they match - essential in the shorts-wearing season.

So just to confirm I require the Hella adapter that will allow me to plug in the normal size cigarette plug? sorry for sounding a bit thick but just getting into this caravan thing.

Yes. The UK and Continental 12v sockets are different sizes so you will need an adapter.

The adapter with a removable red cap will fit both types, but can be a bit hit or miss.

Agree - the type with the red cap can be a bit hit and miss. Used them for years on various motorcycles to power a GPS and the like but gave up in the end and hard wired direct to the battery.
