LAP 13A 1-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket 3.2 5 25 25
poor design Wished I had read the low scoring reviews before buying (and fitting) this product. As other reviewers have commented the cover does not line up with the pins in the socket, so the side of the plug fouls the shroud and the plug lead needs to kink to exit the socket. Moulded plugs will not fit. Only answer is to cut the shroud but this reduces the weatherproofing capabilities. 25 Mar 2015
Beware ! Your plug may not fit If you look at the photo of the product, you'll note that the socket is offset to the left. But the cable exit and seal are central and not vertically aligned below the socket. If the plug you intend to use has a long or large cable shroud - and lets face it, most modern plugs have a large moulded on shroud - then it more than likely won't fit. I had to pare back the shroud and also cut out a small recess in the socket itself. Which may compromise the IP rating. Luckily, it's for an indoor, horticultural location, so won't be getting any direct water. 11 Mar 2015
Weather-resistant Socket Very good for the price. Easy to wire up and fix to wall 3 Feb 2015
not fit for purpose This socket looks promising but has some major flaws: - if your plug has an external strain relief you may not be able to plug it into the socket as clearance is too tight at the bottom - the socket is offset behind the door but the opening at the bottom is centred meaning the cable needs a tight kink if the cover is to be latched shut. This isn't easy with a 1.5mm2 3 core cable. - because the socket is offset there's very little room to grasp the left side of the plug when you want to remove it. You end up grasping the top and right side of the plug and need quite a grip to remove it. It's a shame because it looks promising but the implementation is a bit half baked. And it requires the purchase of a separate cable gland which is annoying and a little tight on LAP/Screwfix's part. 21 Dec 2014
