Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy These are a extremely easy way to change from a single to a double socket. Only requires safety and a screwdriver. They do stick out a little but I've never once judged sockets on their slimness. I would highly recommend these for people who are not too fussed about a socket that sticks out a little. They work and look neat. Can't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to fit! Was a bit nervous about fitting this myself although I'm a competent DIY-er but beyond rewiring plugs I don't usually tackle anything electrical! Was very easy to fit, turned off my mains (could have just isolated the sockets but wanted to be certain the electricity wasn't 'live' at all) and easily removed old identical one and fitted the new. Only took me 20-30 minutes from start to finish which included sweeping up some dust from the floor. If you can rewire a plug then this is just as easy!!! Works a treat :-)

Is this suitable for white goods in a utility area.

HBI intend to plug in a washing machine and a tumble drier is it suitable.
Asked by: JHB17
Thank you for your inquiry, it would depend on the power consumption of the washing machine and tumble dryer. The converta socket can only take a overall load of 13 amps. If you have concerns on the loadings please contact a local electrician in your area who may be able to assist you.

If I switch off all electricity at my mains I can easily replace an old one of these with this identical one as i am competent at rewiring plugs? One of my switches on the old one won't stay 'on' so a replacement will sort the problem presumably?

Asked by: Joannelvdh
All done now and feeling chuffed that I did it myself and all is working! Only took me about 20-30 minutes from start to finish :-)
