    I have this trailer service line kit. However, the separate sockets (middle part in the image) and the sockets on the socket board (top part) are far too small to take the plugs (bottom part). I therefore scratch built a socket board for the trailer (part not supplied) and removed the surface of the socket board (top part) and drilled holes to make larger sockets.
