Two questions

Would this fit a 63 plate?

Will it stop people removing connectors.

Hi James

Thanks for your enquiry

Does yours have a light under the flap and a lock padlock symbol switch next to the flap release switch?
If so, then yours is a Gen 2 version which the charge port cover won't fit :(
Gen 2 versions have a built in plug lock where a solenoid moves a clip cam over the plug to stop it being removed while plugged in..
These Charge Port Covers where specifically designed for Gen 1 Japanese built Leafs (which also had the cream interiors)
They are designed to stop vandals another mallicous clowns from unplugging your leaf while charging in town centres when your slow charging with the 3 pin "brick"

Hopes this helps

Just asking but why were you not with your car ?
I have a separate thread about the first time.

The second time I had my phone number and a chargebump sticker on my dash while I was in a meeting (would have happily answered a call and moved).

You can only have been unplugged from a CHAdeMO if the charging process had finished. So your car was in a CHAdeMO charging bay, plugged in, unaccompanied and not charging. That is indefensible.

Not if he had a Gen 1, they can unplug you. To be honest if your finished I see no reason to moan if if you get unplugged. I put a padlock on my type 1 end, that way they can't nick my cable easily.

Back to the original question, I have a gen1 but I don't know what this plate is. How would you use it ?

Edit :- just re-read. No your correct clearly stated ChaDeMO. Still they can press the emergency stop to release the connector.

Just to add, these covers do work on on gen 2 leaf. I have one myself, more for neatness but it also stops idiots trying to mess.

However it wouldn't help with chadeamo disconnect it only has a slot for the type 1-2 cable

Thanks

Yeh, just used while charging from type 2 or granny cable.

Locking the car also locks the device.

Once unplugged, just fold the cover and keep in boot.

I use mine if leaving in public car park for few hours, or if visiting and use the granny.

Like I say though, it just looks neater, but also covers the ports do idiots can't easily mess with it.

Its a good idea however I think for about a fiver this is also a very good idea, doesnt stop someone unplugging but makes it less desirable to steal the cable. If you are worried about being unplugged setup email notification from the car.

Thanks Eugene, I have a combo padlock that I use save having a key in my pocket, I have never heard of anybody having someone mess with the Chademo socket, most of the problems arise from ppl unplugging and thieves stealing cables and EVSE.
