Ever Seen This?

Pulled the plugs from my Spider, and as they say on Sesame Street "One of these things is not like the others." And no, the top isn't in the plug lead. Off to the store I go!

I've had plugs like that: they have a screw attached to the plug, and then there's a separate aluminum screw-on "sleeve" piece that goes over it. Looks like someone installed a plug without screwing on the sleeve.

I guess the “not like the others” was too subtle. The other 3 had them. Just that 1 didn’t.
