Straight blade plugs are the female components of straight blade connectors that pair with matching straight blade pins to allow the flow of current from the power source to the appliance. They usually constitute three nodes that fit three straight-blade prongs and which are efficient for guarding against electric shock. The left prong node is known as the neutral, the right one as hot or live wire, and the one below is known as the earth. Electric current flows from hot to neutral, and the circuit is completed by plugging in an appliance. Earth pins from straight blade plugs are longer than the other live and neutral blades so that they can plug first and provide grounding. They are also the last to unplug from the straight blade plugs for the same grounding reason. Standard blade plugs are designed for application in different areas such as commercial, garage, workshops, military, and industrial environments. Straight blade plugs can also fit two or three-pronged connectors.MRO Supply is your best bet at getting bins, carts, pallet jacks
