LAP 13A 1-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket White Pack of 5
Good sockets at good price
I ideally prefer to use Crabtree, but looks like Screwfix may be starting to phase these out as can't always find what I want. Have used Lap switches and sockets as a fall back several times. I don't think the quality is QUITE as good as Crabtree, but very close. They are straightforward to fit and use, look smart and so far have had no issues with reliability. Recommended.

Bought to replace ageing non-switched ones. These are lower profile than standard sockets and have rolled edges top & bottom and plugs to hide the fixing screws. The finish is bright gloss white and they look very smart. The switch has a good positive action. Overall, a better product than cheaper alternatives but for very little more. Not had for long enough to confirm reliability.

Good value sockets
The sockets in my 90 year old mothers house were old (some were even 5 amp!) so bought a pack of these to make a start on a bit of "updating".
They seem well made, have good screw connections (easier to use than some MK ones I bought a while back) and are attractive when fitted.. Can't go wrong at the offer price...

I have always found Screwfix products to be excellent value, and also that the staff at Newport Isle of Wight branch are friendly helpful, knowledgeable and efficient.
