Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price - OK quality So this is not the same quality as say a MK one but it is a lot cheaper so really can't complain. If fitting outside you will also need the correct gland to fit your cable so don't forgot to order them at the same time. There is a confusing statement on the front of the plug I took a picture as was going to add to this review but screwfix do not have a option to add photos to review - but on the front of the socket the statement says "Red on, Black off - Test before use if red stays visible THEN DO NOT USE" So it has to show red to be on but do not use if it shows red. Anyway the plug is good value and ok quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Check box when I opened the box there wasn't any screws inside. No screws or rubber gromits to fix to wall, no screws to surcure the socket face to back box. Got the feeling I was given a returned item. Product was great service poor. Would check in furture before leaving the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid value Seems to be a very sturdy unit.. I would have preferred it to have been an active- latched unit, hence only 3 stars for features etc., but still excellent value for the money.

Hi I intend to use this socket outside for a lawnmower and various electric tools , what cable do i use to connect socket thanking you ched 77

Asked by: ched77
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (Storm weatherproof range) is intended for permanent installation into the mains rings of a property, and therefore legally requires a Part P registered installer to install and sign-off on the safety of the installation unless it is being used to replace an existing socket in the same location. A Part P registered installer will be entirely capable of selecting the most appropriate cabling for the installation, but if replacing like-for-like then the existing cabling would have to be used else it would be considered a new installation and again would require a Part P registered installer.

can this be wired direct through the back

Asked by: wbudd
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (weatherproof) does have an option on the rear box for a 20-25mm diameter hole to be drilled out in the centre of the back, and there is a twin moulded raised ring on the outside for a bead of sealant to be run around to get a good flush seal with the surface to which it is being mounted as well.

Will this switch accommodate a transformer plug?

Looking to use this for outside lights at Christmas time and want to know if a plugtop transformer will still allow the lid to close

Is the RCD on this unit active or passive (= latched/unlatched)?

Asked by: Boothby51
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The socket in this weatherproof product has a mechanically latched RCD circuit, so it is Passive.
