Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top Quality This is the best outdoor socket I've ever fit. The quality is great and it's really easy to install. Good sized, solid terminals and effective water-proofing. It would be a little easier to use if the lid lifted up further.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another net disappointment This plug was purchased specifically because the description said that it had a "lockable cover". The cover is NOT LOCKABLE. It is held closed by a plastic clip which can be opened by a child. Looks great though, like the rock star of outdoor sockets.

Description states locable cover do you need additional padlock ?

Asked by: JimBe
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG RCD Double Outdoor Socket Brushed Steel Finish 13A does not have any provision for a padlock to be used to secure the cover, that would be the standard BG 13A 2G RCD Switched Socket (catalogue code 91095).

What cable glands fit this socket

Looking to run armoured cable from the side of this socket. Which glands are suitable?
Asked by: BadgerAnt
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG RCD Double Outdoor Socket Brushed Steel Finish 13A comes complete with pre-made knockouts at 20mm diameter, which can be drilled out to a maximum of 25mm diameter if required. That said, any flat SWA gland of the appropriate diameter for the cable and aperture should be fine.

is it water resistant or proof

Asked by: Paul987
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The BG Storm Weatherproof range has an IP rating of 66 when closed, meaning that no dust can get in and it is proof against pressurised jets of water from all directions.

Is this a Passive or Active RCD? I notice this question asked about similar RCD items, and this important info should be clear on the website.

Asked by: 4eyes
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The RCD protected double socket used in all of the BG Electrical weatherproof ranges is of a Mechanically Latched or Passive type.

Internal Depth?

Does anyone know the internal depth of this unit? I would like to fit a transformer plug which has the depth of 48mm (once the pins are located) and was wondering if it is deep enough? Thanks.
Asked by: PatrickAC
Hi, as this enclosure is designed for regular plug types a 48mm transformer plug is unfortunately far too deep for the cover to close over.
