Answer: 
As long as your blower/vac is 110 or 115 or 120 voltes AND under 15 amps or 1500 watts, AND you don't use it for more than, say, 15 minutes, then this plug should be fine for it. After using it, turn it OFF, then touch the plug, itself. If it's less hot than, say, a car sitting in the summer sun, then you should be okay. Otherwise, find a heavier-duty plug.

Answer: 
Two ratings means that your vacuum cleaner has two speeds, similar to one of my upright vacuum cleaners. As long as it does not exceed the 15-amp limit of this plug, any device should work just fine. However, you should note that "light-duty" means that, while it's fine for lamps, charging cell phone, laptops, etc, it should not be used for more than a few minutes with something taking a heavier draw, Read More
Two ratings means that your vacuum cleaner has two speeds, similar to one of my upright vacuum cleaners. As long as it does not exceed the 15-amp limit of this plug, any device should work just fine. However, you should note that "light-duty" means that, while it's fine for lamps, charging cell phone, laptops, etc, it should not be used for more than a few minutes with something taking a heavier draw, such as a vacuum cleaner, sewing machine, etc. As it is pretty rare for any such device to be on long enough to cause problems, I wouldn't worry about that. However, you can check for yourself by simply touching the plastic plug immediately AFTER you turn OFF the vacuum cleaner. If it is more than just mildly warm to the touch (say, like touching a metal surface (like a car) left in the sun for a few minutes), then you probably shouldn't use the plug for this device. Again, though, I don't think it'll be an issue with your vac. Read Less

Answer: 
If you are referring to a hand-held model, 9"-12" in length requiring you to pour a few ounces of water into for the steam function, then, most likely, the answer is "yes," provided that it does not exceed 15 amps. Look around your iron for a label, which may be hard to find or see (mine is at the bottom of the sole plate or table end (i.e., where it touches the clothes), and is almost invisible!).

If you are referring to a hand-held model, 9"-12" in length requiring you to pour a few ounces of water into for the steam function, then, most likely, the answer is "yes," provided that it does not exceed 15 amps. Look around your iron for a label, which may be hard to find or see (mine is at the bottom of the sole plate or table end (i.e., where it touches the clothes), and is almost invisible!). If it reads 110 or 115 or 120 volts, and less than 1500 watts and/or less than 15 amps, then it should be okay. However, I would not recommend it for long term use (say, more than 15 minutes); just turn it off for at least 15 minutes, and you should be good to go, again. A simple test is to touch the plug AFTER you turn OFF the iron; you don't have to unplug it. If it's less hot than, say, a car sitting in the summer sun, then you're probably "okay." If not, then, find a heavier duty plug. But, again, you should be "okay" with this plug. Read Less

Answer: 
This plug uses screws on the inside, which means that you'll have to slit and splice the wires, per the included instructions, making sure that the ribbed side goes to the silver-colored screw, and the smooth side goes to the copper-colored screw. A third screw is used to close the plug. When done correctly (all of 5 minutes), it is secure and safe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install; works great I turned the wall light switch on and immediately smelled smoke. It turned out that my 50+ year old lamp cord had frayed where it met the plug, and was shorting against the other bare wire. When I put my hand on the plug, it broke into three pieces; turns out, it wasn't the first time it had been repaired (i.e., the original plug broke years before that, probably by my father). The old plug was the "snap-in" kind, which doesn't require insulation to be stripped, but, that means that the sharp "needle," as it were, inside the plug, has to pierce the insulation fully to ensure a connection. I discovered, long ago, that these are not the best plugs to use, because they don't pierce fully without a LOT of pressure (I've broken a couple trying to do so with my bare hands!), and the slightest twisting or pulling of the wire can cause the insulation to slide over it, thus causing a disconnect, or it overstrips the insulation, causing the short. Given that, I wanted a plug that required stripping and would be connected to the plug with screws, not unlike that of an electrical socket. This plug met that requirement. The hardest part was stripping the insulation (separating the cord 1-1/2" then stripping 3/4" to the bare wire, per the instructions). Then, it was easy to connect the wires to their corresponding screws (see photos showing the wire connected to the plug; the ribbed side is on the left and goes to the silver screw, while the smooth side goes to the copper colored screw on the right). It was a little difficult to close the plug over the wires, but, a little extra pressure did the trick, and then I screwed in the outside screw, which secured the wires, snugly. I plugged it into the wall socket, and it worked just fine. I then tried to plug it into the polarized extension, which works off the room light switch, but, I had a devil of a time pushing it in, and couldn't get it to go in, fully. However, it is in about 98% of the way, perfectly secure, and is on a bare, wood floor, so, no problem with short circuiting or someone tripping over it, etc. This was just what I needed, and it took all of 5 minutes to strip the wires and install them into the plug.
