    Default Name this 12V connector

    Does anybody know what this plug & socket is called?

    It's a 12V connector connected hooked up to both the pumps & lights of an Oase Water Quintet Fountain:

    I remember growing up seeing a stereo version of this plug on an old VOX valve-based amplifier. For stereo, there is another identical small pin on the other side of the large pin IIRC.

    I Name thee Bill. Other than that, I have not seen one of those before.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    2 pin DIN plugs. Here is a link, but they are available many other places.

    I was going to say DIN at first. But the pins look too fat for DIN connectors. These remind me of the EBY connectors the kodak slide projectors used to use for the pickle connection.

    I have ordered some DIN's - thanks! Will post back whether it's the right thing.

    Those were used as speaker connectors in HiFi equipment back in the 70s and 80s. Very popular in Europe.
    So, search for 2 pin speaker HiFi connector
