    Slang term for a device allowing one to plug a non-grounded, polarized or not, parallel blade plug into a medium screwbase socket. Also called an Eagle 808, for its make and model number.

    Often used in the film and video industry during "on-location" shoots if no other source of power is available.

    Note the lack of a grounding conductor and use appropriately.
