Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product So easy to go from single socket to double socket, no need to cut or chase new box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great retrofitting sockets Having moved into a house with a number of single sockets, I've fitted a number of these units in various rooms. Very easy to fit, a simple case of swapping over, less than 5 minutes in most cases to do the whole job. They do protrude from the wall further than normal plugs, but required no work changing over the back box, which was a bonus for me. Have had them in place for 4 months now and no problems with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great way to increas sockets Very simple method of increasing the number of sockets in your home without having to chase out a space for a new backbox. If you're competent to do electrics, then this is a sure fire way of making improvements quick and easily. My only issue is the depth of the plate, which needs to be slightly deeper in order to accommodate the pins on a plug. This one I fitted last night also has fixing screws which are about 5mm shorted than those I removed form the old, single socket. Not a massive issue as I just used the old screws, and it realistically is a problem with the fitting of the old back box being too deep in the wall, but just one to keep an eye out for if you use it. I've given 4 stars for reliability, but I haven't used them for long enough to comment for sure. But I can;t see why they would be any issue at all. These things are brilliant! Maybe Screwfix could start supplying them in a range of colours (brush silver etc) so that I can change out others within the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Brought one a year ago and was easy to fit and used daily without any problems. Certainly the cheapest and easiest solution to change from 1 socket to 2. No instructions provided but explains itself. One tip that is good to know is that to get the screw caps off the front is to poke the screw in from the back to pop them off - I know, common sense but that took the longest for me to do with the whole job of replacing!
