Is there one? Dr. Google isn't coughing anything up.

I need a two-prong Dri Plug socket. (The female) Thanks!

Is this for your autopilot? My old Ray pilot used a Dri plug. They work well, but I'm sure you could sub in another plug if necessary.
That said, I have a spare plug/socket assembly...

Edit: I'll check Canadian availability. Sometimes we get stuff from Blighty that doesn't show in the USA.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but sometimes Fisheries Supply has things that Defender or Jamestown don't carry.

Mark,

With no photo in the ad, there's no way to tell. An AH4000 may have multiple prongs instead of just two. Thanks for trying though. Maybe I can call them.

Ish- I appreciate your help. Let me know if you find out anything.

In the meantime, I guess I could snip off the male end on the tiller pilot and adapt a totally different product. What do we have in the States that is like the Dri Plug?

There are other products that will do the same thing.
http://www.westmarin...70#.UJKKrIaQN40 is one, although you end up with an unused terminal.

I just called the UK supplier, they'll ship to the US if you need it. ;)

Whatthehell, it's been sitting unused for 6 years so I'll probably never use it. The plug has been used (I converted a wired spotlight to use the same socket) but the socket is new.
Ajax, if you want it, it's yours. PM me your address.

Ajax,
West Marine has carried them before. If you are in urgent need, I have a two prong DriPlug in my spares and can take a look for it if you're interested. PM me if you are.

BTW, I used one of their 6-conductor plugs that incorprated a VHF coax connector too. Used it for mast wiring handling anchor, masthead trilight, windex, foredeck flood and steaming.
