Where can I get a US double plug ?

Does anyone know where I can get a US style double plug, so I can plug 2 devices into a stepdown convertor?
I'm having trouble finding one in the UK.

2x international adaptors will do your trick. They can be bought from any hardware shop

I don't think that's quite what the OP is after.

As I read it, he wants to run two US (110v) devices, each with its own US-style 2- or-3-pin plug, from a 240->110v converter which only has a single socket. So he wants a single->double US socket converter.

If he wants to be drastic, he could cut the plugs off the devices and replace them with UK-type ones, then use a single adaptor, but it's not really a good idea to put 240v-type plugs onto 110v equipment.

On the other hand, Amazon do a step-down transformer for about £17. That's probably the cheapest option.

I bought one last year in Sainsburys on a swivel travel gadgets stand near the pharmacy counter. 2 US pins on the back & 2 UK 3pin sockets on the front. Try there :thumbsup:

I then saw them all over the place at the airport & in the states

I'm on my 2nd transformer for a small device, both of them make a buzzing sound, I've tried the device in my big transformer and it didn't make a buzzing sound, that's why I want to plug 2 devices into my big transformer.

Why don't you use the single plug you have to wire up a double uk socket? As in a short extension/converter lead. That way you can plug whatever you want into it.
