Clipsal Converta Socket 1-Gang to 2-Gang Polycarbonate
1 to 2 gang socket converter
In the right circumstances this is a very useful product. I used this to avoid cutting through tiles and creating a lot of dust and mess associated with changing a 1 gang back box to a 2 gang. The socket position was out of sight so the different appearance to other sockets in the room didn't matter. Good white colour plastic, good switches, good electrical terminals. If you can change the back box, do so, if you can't, this product is an option.

2 sockets for the price of 1
If you have a single socket and want a double you could remove the single socket and box then open out the space to accept a double box and socket or you could fit a converta socket.This was very easy to fit and was well made with a solid quality feel to it.Once fitted the square screw covers finish the job very neatly indeed.An excellent product at an excellent price.

Clipsal such a time-saver
Even in houses up to the '90s with modern T&E there are rooms with a single socket. This item is a smart and simple solution to twin the outlets with no fuss. The connection points are well placed centrally with over-sized terminals to permit easy re-wiring, so the DIY'er can work with confidence.

2 into 1 does go!
This appears to be a great quality double socket, designed specifically to upgrade a single wall socket into a double one.
Fitting was extremely simple and quick.
For convenience all the screw terminals are arranged in a central position over the original socket cavity so you don't need to have especially long wires. Then the new faceplate simply secures into the original screw holes via cleverly positioned holes just beneath the earth pins. These are then concealed with special caps which just press on. They even provide spare caps attached to the back of the socket and the provided mounting screws are pointed to aid threading.
