European/Multinational Grounding Plug

  • 795

This widely-used plug (Type F) features two round pins of 4.8 mm for the live and neutral contacts, plus two flat contact areas on the top and bottom side of the plug for protective earth (ground).

Used widely in most of Continental and Eastern Europe. (Italy and Switzerland may require separate plugs.)

Countries that use this plug include:

Algeria, American Samoa, Aruba, Austria, Azores, Balearic Islands, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Chad, Croatia, El Salvador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guinea, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Italy, Jordan, Korea, Laos, Luxembourg, Madeira, Monaco, Montenegro, Mozambique, Myanmar, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, Niger, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Suriname, Sweden, Turkey, Uruguay.

The Russian standard plug is similar but has 4-mm pins. Therefore, Russian plugs will fit Schuko outlets, but Schuko plugs will not fit Russian outlets. (If traveling to Russia, use the PowerPlug for Europe, Russia & South America-Item #179). Many former Eastern bloc countries are currently undergoing a process of transition to the (16 A) Schuko standard. Note: The Schuko plug has been phased out of use in Ireland.
