Yip I want it the other way round @Napster @carlos the one you list is for euro 2 pin plugs. I thought that it would fit also but it doesnt, so UK two pin socket is different

Technically, a 2 pin european schuko plug(as in the adaptors above) shouldn't fit in a uk shaver socket, as the pin diameters are the same but the spacing is slightly different. They often do though with a bit of a shove, or no shove if the manufacturing tolerances are a bit dodgy.

They don't make shaver socket to three pin adaptors for a very good reason.

@nara Its for a electric beard trimmer basically the same as a shaver just its got a 3 pin and I want to use it in the bathroom where I shave

By the way @nara you really do seem to becoming even more of an auld fart pal.
