Description: This comes in various forms, but essentially looks like a regular small lamp plug with two prongs.
Buying information: Use this plug for a quick way to replace a bad lamp-cord plug. Clamp-on plugs may be rated to handle higher amperages, but the consensus among electricians is that these may be dangerous for a current load greater than a bulb or two.
How-to hints: To install a clamp-on plug, cut off the old plug, than insert the line cord end into the clamp-on plug, with the clamp part opened up. Press down the clamp part; its teeth then pierce the insulation on the cord and contact the wires.
