Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outside socket Once again screwfix have come up with an outside closed weatherproofed switched socket for a price no one else can beat. I needed a socket outside my garage for car cleaning and yard cleaning and this will be great. I have only put four for reliability because I have only just bought and fitted it but knowing screwfix products I have no doubts it will be as good as their other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outside power Excellent robust product easy to fit, and does the job. the neon lights make it easy to see when the unit is powered on from a distance. The unit is water tight and also has the benefit that it can be locked up with a padlock.

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.

What mounting Pole can I get with this. It needs to be mounted on a free standing pole

Asked by: AMEGroup
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. BG does not make any poles, spikes or other mounting accessories for its weatherproof (Storm) range of sockets and switches, they are intended only to be mounted on an existing vertical surface.
