BTTF - Doc's power coupling


Active Member
Over at our new german prop forum we were talking about the power coupling Doc trys to connect on the clock to catch the lightning. The question is if it is a found object from the fivetys oder a made object. If it is found can someone provide us with information about the manufacurer and about what we should look for if we would want to buy such a coupling.

Here is the link to the original thread.

Well it deffinatly looks like a found object, almost looks like you can make out an egal on the big black part, the "female" end. I'd say look around industrial electric suppliers, maybe even email a few with a picture of the part and see if they can help. Interesting prop though.
