Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poorly designed I really should have read the 1 star reviews before purchasing this and the equivalent double socket... Totally misdesigned product - 90% of plugs foul the casing once inserted and do not align with the cable outlet. This means some plugs cannot be inserted at all while those that can prevent the cover to be shut. Also the cover impossibly hard to open. Returning for a refund, unfortunately I noticed these problems after fitting both sockets. What a pain. A socket really has one major purpose: to accept a plug. This item does not meet that criteria. 10 Aug 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value item Bought so that we could use our Lawnmower without plugging into a Kitchen socket. very easy to fit and practical in use. can`t comment on reliability as only just fitted. Looks to be of good quality. Screwfix sercice top notch as always. 8 Aug 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by External switch socket Great value, much cheaper than the competitors and also very easy to fit..... 25 Jul 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not very good The socket cover once fixed is almost impossible to open and if forced the cover comes off the hinge. The fixing at low level is difficult as the four screw holes are postioned at the end of plastic "tunnels" which makes it difficult to see and locate the screws. There is a gap between the wall and the socket which would allow water penetration if not filled.However, the main problem is the inability to open the cover! 19 Jul 2016

Hi there, could you tell me which glands fit with this socket please? I am using plastic 20mm conduit and would like to make a weather proof seal.

Cheers

Hi PandD,

We would not be able to advise you to use this as a trailing socket. We would recommend that you bought a dedicated IP66 trailing socket.

thank you for using Q and A.

I have a project where I need to fit an external key-switch. I would like to use one of these housings a. because it's discreet and b. because it is IP rated. My question really is can I remove the socket from the moulded enclosure and install a different single gang plate into it??
