Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be careful This review is based on my personal experience, could be a bad batch. Bought 45 of these to install to replace old switches. Had to initially return about 20 of them as the sockets did not function correctly -could not insert the prongs of a three pin plug. After a few months one of them had a malfunction - we found it had overheated at the back and melted all the plastic in the plug. Returned it for a replacement. (All the pugs were installed by an electrician not me so cannot blame amateur attempts at wiring.) This was a few months ago. This morning smelt burning in the kitchen and after tearing apart a fitted counter top found the offending plug - completely melted and fused at the back and burn marks on the wall. Screw fix have offered to replace all the plugs but LAP seem to be the only replacement so not very happy about having all these potential time bombs sitting around the house. In hindsight we should have paid up for more expensive fittings but tough to do on a budget. I repeat this is our experience, there are lots of positive reviews, but i guess you get what you pay for in terms of quality.

Are these sockets product code 68831 Actually Stainless steel fronts

I would like these sockets for a full house rewire and maybe 10 for my new Garage build so I would prefer them if actually stainless steel rather than chrome which have been known to peel.
Asked by: Indifferent
I've not gone and scratched these extensively (sorry!), but from casual inspections, I do believe that these are stainless steel (as opposed to chrome finishes, which I have also had the misfortune of having peeled!)
