Rated 4 out of 5Â by russ50 Good for the price
IP66 for under Â£7. Quality looks fine. Clips to undo easier than some dearer ones (I had a customer complain about being unable to open a Crabtree double outside socket).

Have a couple of problems with this. It works Ok but:
1) It is a little on the large size, not overly neat and tidy
2) As this is a switched plate it is offset in the box. If you plug anything in with a thick cable protector the cable will not go into the cable slot in the bottom of the box and the plug does not fit fully into the box

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gwrfan A socket with substance
I bought this to replace an old and cracked outdoor socket. It has a far more substantial feel to it and the fact that it is also switched makes it safer.
My one reservation is that it is important to choose a flat site for the socket as it could get out of square if screwed to, for example, a rough coated wall.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by dybb Is not suitable for all plugs
I got this for plugging in an electric car charging cable.
As someone else has noted, the socket in the box is offset. The car's cable is fat, stiff, and has a larger plug than a normal 13A. It wouldn't plug in so I had to get a socket with a central socket.
Otherwise, this is a good and surprisingly cheap bit of kit, so if you can manage an offset socket, then get one.
