LAP 13A 1-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket
This product does the job and does not break the bank. I found the construction of the moulded box to be quite sturdy and was impressed with the finished article when fitted. Better than other types of outdoor equipment that I have used previously.

I like to point out one design flaw: The socket is offset, due to the on/off switch. This means that longer moulded plugs cannot not be used. The wire does not line up with the sealed opening at the bottom.
(I do not understand the reason for a switch on this unit since it normally would be closed)

Poor for moulded plugs
It is a well made product and exceptional value. However, as noted by other reviewers, the offset design makes using a moulded plug almost impossible if you wish to close the lid. This design flaw could be solved if they omitted the switch (why one is needed is a bit of a mystery - the lid clips are so powerful, opening the lid to switch on/off regularly would be a real pain - I use the isolator switch inside the building).
One way around the flaw would be to cut off the moulded plug and use a standard plug.
Wish I'd read the low star reviews before purchase.
