Have you recently purchased a new dryer with a 4-prong plug, own an older home with a 3-prong outlet and don't want to hire an electrician to run a new outlet? Did you just buy a new home with a 4-prong outlet and don't have enough money after the large home purchase to get a new dryer. Your older dryer still has the 3-prong plug and your not sure what to do about it? We have 2 new products launching that can help with either of those problems and keep your home safe.
The first is the S10301430-018
The S10301430-018 is an 18 inch adapter used when you have an older house, 1996 or earlier, or an older 3 prong style (NEMA 10-30) outlet and need to plug in a newer dryer. The newer dryers will have a 4-prong style plug (NEMA 14-30). The product also has a 5-foot long cable connecting a ground pin to the adapter. The ground pin will allow the dryer to become grounded and safe from electrical shock. Plug the ground pin into a regular household outlet (NEMA 5-15, 5-20).

The second is the S14301030-018
The S14301030-018 is an 18 inch adapter used when you have a newer house, after 1996, or a newer 4-prong style (NEMA 14-30) outlet and need to plug into an older dryer. The older dryers will have a 3-prong style plug (NEMA 10-30). The product also has a 5-foot long cable with a ring terminal connecting a ground pin to the adapter. The ground pin will allow the dryer to become grounded and safe from electrical shock. Remove a screw from the outer metal casing of your dryer, place the ring terminal on the screw and screw it back in. After that, plug the ground pin into a regular household outlet (NEMA 5-15, 5-20).

WARNING! The grounding pin must be inserted into the grounding hole in your regular home outlet for the dryer to be grounded properly, with product S10301430-018. If you do not use the grounding pins properly, the dryer will not be grounded. The same goes for S14301030-018 except you MUST ALSO have the ring terminal hooked up to a screw on the METAL case of your dryer for grounding. Electrical shock may occur when products are not grounded properly.
