Rated 5 out of 5 by from outdoor socket item well worth the price simple and easy to fit and operate
Date published: 2016-11-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly flawed design This product is well made, easy to install and very good value for money. However, there is a slight design flaw in that the socket is offset to the left hand side of the casing but the cable entry for the connected device is central. This can make it awkward to close the lid of the outlet, particularly if the plug has a moulded strain relief or if a particularly large diameter cable is used. Looking at the other, similar products offered this appears to be a common issue with switched weather-proof outlets and I am surprised that none of the manufacturers has thought about this and modified their designs accordingly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Off-set Socket This LAP- 13A 1 Gang Outdoor socket seems very robust and well sealed. I installed it easily enough, but then when I inserted a moulded plug into the socket I found the socket was 'off-set' to the left and the bottom of the moulded plug was fouling on the cable entry point. I forced it closed, but having forgotten to switch the socket on I had to open the securing clips again. This was a real struggle and I thought they would snap off in the process. Why didn't LAP design the socket to be central to the cable entry point ?? Given a 4 star rating as a normal 'wireable' plug will probably fit OK.

Yes, there are several 'knock-out' entry points on this socket to suit most installations.

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.

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??
