LAP 13A 2-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket Brushed Chrome Pack of 5
Good price and service
Bought these just under a month ago and been really impressed, the store reservation and pick up was straight forward and hassle free.
The sockets themselves have proved to be excellent value for money and far cheaper than any of the other high street diy stores.
The electrician who fitted them also commented on how good they looked with no screws and had no problems fitting them.

Not the easiest sockets to fit
These sockets look very nice before installing.
Installation: you will need to ensure the back box for these sockets is perfectly flush with the wall and also the plaster is an exact fit. Anything else will result in the socket not fitting properly. They do not work with dual pa tress boxes either as the faceplate is oversize compared to a regular faceplate. The back box needs to be no less than 25mm.
Features: I haven't really had a chance to test properly, but from first impressions they appear solid and the switch action is smooth

poor quality product
The size of the socket body makes instalation very hard as the body only just fits into standard 25mm deep metal box.
When fitting the 2 off fixing screws ensure screws are not too tight as this distorts the plastic flange making front panel fixing poor.

Diificult to install
Do not use with dual accessory backing boxes, as the fittings are oversized and overlap when you try to fit them. The dimmer modules in the range are worse. There are other manufactures of screwless plates that in my opinion are far better, and do not have compatability issues with standard backing boxes.
