The socket is to fit a decorative column which is attached to a dressing table top. Bit difficult to explain really but there is not really another alternative.
The carpenters already cut the hole for the wiring so I cant even go back on the decision. If I dont find anything suitable I'll have to cover it up with something, maybe a small vase of flowers. I'd prefer my plug socket though!
looking at my inverter in the van , there is a socket outlet on there , measuring 4. 8 cm square.
THERES a chance u might get one from an electronics supplier, try mapplins electronics , then go from there and ask
