13/7 PIN Towbar Trailer Socket Tester – DVSA APPROVED for MOT Use
This 13 PIN Towbar Trailer Socket Tester meets the DVSA (MOT) specification for 13 pin Trailer Socket Test Tools and can also be used for testing most 7 pin trailer and tow bar sockets.
Easy to operate, the handheld device gives a clear indication with the respective LED illuminating when the relative towbar operation is detected.
The product has a ”Test” button, allowing the operator to assure all the LED indicators are functioning correctly before any testing is carried out.
Includes 5 meters of shielded cable for ease of use.
See 13/7 PIN Adaptor (purchased separately).
Please Note some 7 pin vehicle trailer sockets may not be wired in a uniform way and it is possible that using the adaptor will prevent the socket tester working in the same way as the 13 pin socket.
Testing of 13 PIN Towbar Trailer Electric Sockets has been mandatory from 1st January 2012 for MOT Test Stations (classes: 3, 4, 5 & 7) and the socket tester must be on the DVSA list of approved equipment, (SEE DVSA SPECIAL NOTICE 1-2011).
