"Driplugs" ceased manufacturing some time ago - maybe 2 or 3 years ago. So best source is a chandler who still has stock ? or 2nd hand via ebay.

Does anyone know a source for the large two pin dri plugs that come on tillerpilots? I want to replace mine with the same design if possible.

Do you need the plug, or the socket Tom ?

I have a couple here, let me have the diameter and if it's the same you can have one for the cost of the post.

I needed to replace my plug & socket a few years ago. The different replacement from the chandlers is much more robust, but sticks out a bit more.

@PaulRainbow Do you still have the Dri Plug? I bought an old catamaran with the 2-pin Dri Plug socket fitted in the deck, and I can't find a plug anywhere in the UK.

Many thanks if you can help - 07576 076428

If you can't get the same, you might consider Bugin Buccaneer, which is what Raymarine & Pelagic use.

Raymarine used to use 2-pin, but changed to 3-pin, the shielded cable being "earthed" through the 3rd.

At Farnell:
