Rated 4 out of 5 by 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! 5 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 21 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Started using the B.G range on my rewires now good quality and look tidy with the screw caps on 2 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best value range If you want a wide range of quality electrical plates at a sensible price then you have found it in BG. These sockets are strong and do not twist or distort on rough plaster work. The terminals are well placed and the screws are strong and easy to get to even in confined places. The additional earth terminal is very useful in clean earth use or just to help in keeping the wiring tidy in the box. They are very slim and leave plenty of room in a 25mm metal box for the wires. The switches have a pleasing positive action and a simple red mark to show on. Add to all this the two sets (one spare) of white screw covers provided and you have a really neat installation and quality product at a sensible price. 14 Mar 2016

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.
