Rated 2 out of 5 by from Incomplete This would be a perfectly good product if what you bought did what it says. but as it is sold without the necessary gland kits to actually make it weather proof it's a bit disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I like this product a lot. Unlike another relatively cheap brand, you can actually close the lid while using various electrical devices. Easy to install, and it is very handy for using a jetwash or a lawnmower etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4/5 for me Great product, build quality is excellent looks very robust and over the last few weeks it's proven itself to be waterproof as stated. My only complaint is the clips are fiddly and hard to open and close not a problem if you have something plugged in constant but personally I'm forever changing plugs and I struggle to open them clips

What is the depth of the back box on its own?

I want to fit one externally to my caravan. I'm wondering if I'd be able to fit the back box between the inner lining and outer wall so that just the flap and sockets at protruding?
Asked by: Thorpesecuritysystems
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The design of the enclosure for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket has a retained gasket inside the rim of the front section, which is engaged with the lip of the back box to make the enclosure watertight, so installing the box between the skins of your caravan would not allow this engagement and hence the product would not be watertight. Also, as this would be against manufacturer installation guidelines and advice you would void any warranty by installing it in such a manner.

What size are the entry points

Asked by: doanything
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All of the knockouts around the sides of the back-box for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket are 20mm as standard, or can be drilled out to 25mm if necessary without compromising the structural integrity of the box.

I wired my new outdoor double switch waterproof plug and when I plug something into the left hand plug it blows the main fuse

Asked by: Fuzzbox
I had exactly the same problem with one of these sockets purchased late December 16, could be an insulation issue within the socket!

breaker amp? run as single circuit from main distribution board

Anyone suggest breaker amp for radial feed to this type of socket. Looking to fit 16 amp mcb just wanted to clarify if this is suitable. Cheers
Asked by: d1yelectrical
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket could conceivably cope with two devices each drawing a maximum 13A (3,120W each) through the circuits it is possible that you would need a breaker rated to cope with at least 26A. However, the carrying capacity of your wiring would also need to be considered as the breaker is strictly speaking for the protection of the wiring to prevent it being overloaded. If you are uncertain then you would be best advised to consult a local electrician whom will know what cable ratings are and what breakers to use in a given situation, and will also be familiar with local authority interpretations of the applicable rules and regulations.

How much room is there inside?

I was wondering if there is enough room inside to plug a timer in into the socket and then something into the timer?
Asked by: Alun007
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The enclosure on this BG Nexus 13A 2G DP Switched (weatherproof) Socket is designed to accommodate two standard UK plugs only, There is not enough room for a timer of any description even by itself, let alone with a standard UK plug also plugged into it.
