Hi, let me present myself, I'm Marco and I just got a RA, so a new member of this forum.
I have searched around and I think this topic might have been brought up already in the past, but maybe things have changed since.
Obviously, living in Italy, I wish that a European version of the relay box was available, as I don't like at all to use the adaptors which are bulky and, in my opinion, also unsafe.
Is there any hope for the future?
In the meanwhile, I was thinking to open the relay box and either substitute the US sockets with EU ones, if possible or wire the connectors of the sockets to another box with EU sockets.
Has anyone ever tried this?
I have opened the box unscrewing the back, but I don't know how to disassemble the sockets that are fixed on the board. Can anyone help?
Many thanks.
Marco

You can just pry them apart.

You mean from the front side (outside)?
I am a bit afraid of breaking the smal hooks of plastic that I suppose are fixing the sockets. It's not clear to me how should I pry them apat. If I force them inserting a screwdriver in the chink, is it ok? Thanks again.

Yes. Pry it with screwdriver between the socket and pcb.
They are just attached by pressure
