Sometimes things are all around us that we see ... yet don't see.

This is a pic of the end of the connector in an "industry standard" plug pattern. With summer coming up, let's see who remembers where this pattern is found.

Since this is a "trivia" item ... could you 'old salts' hold off on the ID? I promise to reveal all come Saturday! laugh

Weird-looking thing. It looks like it's partially melted.

I haven't the foggiest idea.

MAmills, it is damaged ... the part is from a repair last summer.

Is the center hole actually a threaded insert?

The center looks like a rivet holding it together, not a contact.
