    Hi guys,

    Does anyne know where to get timers that dont have the 3 pin plug portion attached? I'm looking for a series of timers that one can attach the wires directly into the timer rather than using a bulky plug to run my lights?

    Dont know of any. If you want to do that then you need to modify them yourself. Cut the plug portion off and gain access to the wires itself.

    The only other timers that would work is the ones that fits into the DB boards. Din rail timers I think.
