Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nightmare with metal pattress I've used about 15 of these, and when you install into plastic pattrasses in plasterboard walls they're great, however, and it's a BIG however they do NOT fit metal pattrasses well if at all. I've been faced with needing to remove screw tangs and cutting off internal features to get these to fit, and then only by wedging them in. Cause is the behind the faceplate moulding is far too large, not in depth but in height. I have emailed LAP as this is a serious design flaw, but nothing back so far :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointing Purchased these sockets and found that with a standard box 25mm it's quite a struggle to get the plate flat on the wall. If I was to use again I would use a deep backbox as it's poorly designed on the back and cables are squashed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Getting the faceplates on is an absolute faff. Buy the screw on obnes or it'lll be hours of frustration

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Posh Sockets These look SO much better than the bog standard white sockets. They are very easy to fit and the fronts just clip on.

Do these switches fit into the current sockets or do I require matching sockets

Asked by: Bluejob
Hi Bluejob. These sockets should it into standard back boxes. I hope this information is of help to you.

How are the plates installed without screws?

It appears they may be in an insert fitted to the plug box? If so, I assume this will fit to standard boxes or do additional boxes need to be purchased? Thanks
Asked by: AndrewRC
Hi Bluejob. The front plates on these sockets come off, and using the screws supplied, go into standard back boxes. Once fitted the front plate is pushed back on hiding the screw holes. I hope this information is of help to you.
