To use the electric adapter, one needs to plug in the mains power from your electric provider. Then, the electric adapter is used to convert the mains power into alternating current (AC). The electric adapter also provides a safety ground and permits connection to three or four wall sockets so that you can power the lamps that are on the walls. There are different types of adapters available for the various types of plugs – those with female threads and those with male threads. If you are planning to buy an adapter, you should check the specifications of the plugs and sockets that you are going to use.
One of the advantages of using an electric adapter is that it can help you conserve energy. Suppose, for example, that you have a three-pronged wall socket with three male wall sockets. By using a universal adapter, you can convert all three sockets into plugs that can be used to light a lamp or a toaster. It is advisable to measure the three holes on the wall sockets before you buy the adapter. This is because some wall sockets have two holes while others have three.
Another advantage of using this accessory is that you do not have to remove the mains power when you are changing the bulb that has three rectangular holes. The adapter, in turn, will hold the mains until you unscrew the adapter base and insert the bulb into the three rectangular holes on the base. If you do not remove the base in the proper way, you will find that the mains will shoot up through the adapter base and shoot out the bottom holes. This can damage the mains. Hence, it is important to follow the instructions carefully.
To install a universal adapter, there are a few things to keep in mind. You should make sure that the three electrical prongs that are associated with the outlet are in alignment with each other, the electrician is using the same electric connection that is provided by the wall sockets, and that the adapter is screwed directly into the wall socket with the screws that are provided by the manufacturer. It is not difficult to use an electric adapter as long as you follow the instruction manual properly.
It is important to install only one electric adapter at a time. If two bodies of a universal adapter are installed in two different walls, it will prevent them from working efficiently together. Hence, it is important to start with one body and then put the second body onto the first one so that both bodies can be connected to the wall sockets. In order to avoid interference, you should use a dual clamping style.
One of the main advantages of using this type of electric plug-in a home is that it provides security to the home. Since an electric circuit is created, the plugin the outlet is always in close proximity to a grounded wire which prevents the electric current to be interfered with in any way. This gives assurance to the family as no electric shock can be caused due to improper or faulty wiring. When two bodies of an electric adaptor are installed in a certain location, it helps to reduce the chances of two electrical circuits sharing a common ground wire. This is the first type of adapting pin shown in fig.
