Extension cord - Universal extension lead 250V/16A
Product description
Extension lead without earth wire, with special plug with recesses instead of the earth contacts found in earthed plugs, and special coupling with cast protrusions instead of the contact springs for the earth wire found in earthed plugs; 10m long; orange; for indoor and outdoor use. Same voluntary measures have been taken regarding similar extension leads measuring 20m and 30m.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock and fire because: - the cross-section of the extension lead is too small (1 mm²) for the length of the cable, - there is no integrated protection, - the extension lead does not have an earth wire (non-standard coupling). The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant standard.
