English term or phrase:aligns with the adapter socket
I am not sure of the translation of "aligns with the adapter socket" in "The Multimeter can be used immediately by connecting the AC Adapter/Battery charger. Make sure the hole in the rubber boot on the Multimeter aligns with the adapter socket." I would simply say "aligner sur la prise de l'adaptateur" but does it make any sense?
Explanation: Il faut que le trou de la protection en caoutchouc qui entoure le multimètre soit en face du trou (dans le multimètre) pour la prise de l'adaptateur, sinon la fiche de l'adapteur ne rentrera pas :-)
