Some people don’t know how to use and properly place C14 male connectors. Luckily, the Youtube video “Molded Cords & Cables Ltd How to Wire a STK152 (C14 IEC (Male) Plug)” has all the information you need to set everything up correctly and never have problems connecting again. Let’s find out more!
When people order this plug, they get confused between the plug and socket, and it’s important to understand how to differentiate them. Fortunately, there’s a general rule. If you can touch the metal pins, it’s a plug. If not, it’s a socket. Many people call and ask for the C13 and, because they plug it into something, they believe it’s a plug, but it’s actually a socket. A plug will connect to things such as a PDU.
Now that you understand that, it’s time to learn about connecting them properly. You’re going to need a Pozi-drive, outer cable PVC strippers, and internal inner core cable strippers. You need to open up the plug with the driver, remove the lid and grommet, and undo the cable strain relief all the way out to remove the screws. You can watch the rest of the video for more details about C14 male connectors.
