Rated 1 out of 5Â by DMole 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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by UAA392 Not for moulded plugs!
Looks well made and robust but no good for moulded plugs.
The design of this socket is poor in my opinion. Due to the gap in the sockets surround, for the cable from the plug to run through, being off set to the socket. The cable will have to be bent at an angle to fit in order to close the front when in use. Of the two moulded plugs I tried in it, one would not allow the front to shut and one would not fit in to the socket fully.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by FamilyMan Utterly Useless
This socket is utterly useless for any appliance with a moulded-in mains plug. Even with the flap open a moulded on mains plug from something like a Dyson Vacuum cleaner won't fit.
The problem is that the centre of the socket is offset from the cable entry point and other than at the entry point there is a high lip that runs all the way round the socket. Consequently unless the mains cable can be bent close to the plug it can't be inserted in to the socket.

Simple to install. Good locking system with double clip to secure plug.
