This inverter has 2x UK 3 pin plug sockets, one of the main attractions of this unit however you can not plug 2 things in next to each other!

Here are the sockets at stock setup, they are approx 42mm wide with only around 6mm spacing between the 2 sockets.

A normal UK plug is about 50mm wide.

Remove the top 2 black screws at either end of the inverter and the top casing cover will lift off. Be careful because the wires are attached.

Carefully unplug from the board: 2x socket cable, on / off switch cable and the USB panel cable.

Remove the 3x screws from the USB panel.

Unclip the 2x power sockets.

You can leave the on / off switch in the top cover.

On the left hand side socket put a piece of tape and there is already a small cut out for the socket clips, mark a line so that you are cutting away the excess down to the same level as that.

Cut the excess with a tool like a dremel so it end up like below.

From here flip the left socket 90 degrees clockwise so it is like below.

And the plugs now fit!

Plug everything back in carefully and re-attach the top cover.

Test the inverter still functions as expected.
