DIN/Cigarette Outlet Adapter

Iím shopping for a new adapter to plug in 12v accessories. The one Iíve got is loose so Iíve got to tap the plug with my foot occasionally and is very close to the reverse selector. Most that I see have a pigtail between the DIN and cigarette outlet. These seem bulky and would dangle.

I have installed a dual USB port on the panel, but my GPS requires a 12v cigarette outlet.

What do others use?

Re: DIN/Cigarette Outlet Adapter

I bought a bunch of DIN plugs that have about an 8" cord to get to the 12v accessory outlet.
Next, cut the wire and install a 2-way extension (https://smile.amazon.com/PACK-0F-Wor...J0HGT0Z272Y564).
Then, create one to go from your battery tender to the DIN plug.

I can't find a source for the DIN to 12v adapters right now.

If others have a cleaner installation, please let me know.
