Excellent value for money and easy to connect will be buying more

Good but flawed design.
It's quite obvious now I have fitted one and went to plug in a hammer drill. If your appliance has a large moulded on plug, the tail will not line up with the silicon seal in the base of the door. You can see it clearly in image 2, on this page. In fact all the single socket switched versions suffer from this not just LAP. So if you need to close the door up with a plug in, and achieve a splash proof seal, you will struggle. It does explain this in the instruction leaflet that comes with it, although it is a one liner at the bottom of the page, to cover their ars's.

Absolutely useless with moulded plugs. Will be seeking full refund from Screwfix.

Just One Fault lets it down.
No problem fitting etc. However as it has a switch the plug socket is slightly to one side. The sealed passage for the plug cable is central. Therefore if you have a heavily moulded plug it is difficult to get it to fit and seal. In hindsight I would have looked for one without a switch as I am unlikely to use it.
