replacement is obtained.
If the plug has to be changed because it is not suitable for your socket,
or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and appropriate plug fitted
following the wiring instructions. The plug removed must be disposed of
safely as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical
hazard.

IMMEDIATELY. An electric shock hazard may arise if an unwanted
non-rewireable plug is inadvertently inserted into a 13A socket outlet.
