    ill check my emails and post later, I ordered from a site recently and they stock literally every connector going, you could knock your own lead up using some curly flex as we will call it and a plug.

    Have looked and it seems metrel had the 4 pin adaptor thing made purely to be awkward.. its essentially 4 banana adaptors as they are known on other leads/mfts in one. it means you can only use there approved stuff, although some in the far east started knocking them out. you will if you look hard enough find the adaptor, then using some wires and readily available banana adaptors make your own, but given the time to locate bits, might be cheaper to buy one.

    I've just gone through the CPC catalogue and can't find one in there. Hopefully you will have better luck.
