Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two out of five faulty so far. I bought a box of five and a single unit to replace six older sockets. So far of the three I have fitted two have major problems. The two faulty ones do not switch off on one of the two switches. I put a battery on charge which, when fully charged, the charger light stays on. Went to turn the charger off at the switch and couldn't. The only way to stop power to the charger was to unplug it as the on off switch stayed permanently on. The second socket was used with my TV and sky box. My sky signal froze so I decided to power off my sky box by turning off the socket the box was plugged into. It wouldnt turn off!! Again I had to pull the plug to power off. This is an xtremely dangerous situation to be in. Fire risk comes to mind. I cannot recommend this product as I believe they are poorly made and dangerous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for almost all uses Nicely made, look smart and with nice action switches. Where the wall isnt quite flat they have just enough flex to tighten to it without a gap. Two earth connectors, one each end. Recommended. Two small issues though. They come with 40mm screws and some boxes were set back further and needed a pack of 50mm screws. Other issue was that a twisted pair fits great into each connector, but a twisted triple (old style braided) wouldn't fit the connectors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better that expected I've been renovating properties and needed some inexpensive sockets "to be getting on with" pending aesthetic decisions being made. I've used over thirty of them in the last two years in all situations.These sockets were no problem to install, none have failed and whilst not a "designer" product they've not been replaced because they're ugly. Mostly, they're invisible - which usually a good thing. No frills - no problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic 2G Sockets! Bought these after being unimpressed by other white 2G sockets sold by Screwfix. IMO they look much better than other sockets and the switch has a nicer click.

Have been looking at 13a sockets, Not one has the depth of back box required?? can anyone shed some light on this?

Asked by: will18358
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. These sockets will fit any standard back box (surface or flush mount) which is at least 25mm deep as long as there is not an excess of wiring sharing the box. If there is a lot of extra wire in the box then a 32mm box would be advisable to prevent the socket being pushed away from the box by the wire behind it.
