Anti Spark with an arming plug


The arming plug defeats the anti-spark.

The way the anti-spark works, is the first (momentary) contact made by the male plug is with a copper ring which is connected to the female jack by a resistor.

The current inrush is satisfied AS the plug and jack are joined.
Once joined, the resistor is no longer part of the path.

Your last "arming" step must be to plug the Anti-Spark.
