I like these...

Strange isn't it? Seem to be rather rare, even on a google image search,
as if someone scrubed them out. Perhaps they went out of favour when
users found that long time the neons died?
Anyway, I found these when I did "BS1363 neon"
A pack of eight for £8.94, I'm sure someone else will have an offer for
See how they come ready labelled, like if they've just passed PAT.
It's a new branding applied, like 'CE'!

Perhaps you could put together your unused plug and the neon and show the rest
of us how to do it and then we can all save a few bob.
I'm not trying to be pompous, but if you have to ask how to do it safely
you should probably not be doing it yourself. It has to be done so as
to avoid short circuits and bits of the thin neon wire sticking out of
the plug, also heat resistant and mechanically satisfactory. It's
doubtful if anyone should be modifying a plug, but I think I could do it
safely if I had to. I would want to be fairly certain no-one would ever
rewire it - perhaps it's simply best not done!
