Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design on the front:- Looks Good on the back:- Excellent user friendly design. If you're using LAP plastic pattress'- Just be careful not to overtighten anything. By far the most user friendly design I've ever used. Only 3 stars for reliability because Screwfix insist on a "reliability" rating! - ask me again 10 years from now

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only One Downside Due to getting a few duff MK Sockets recently I decided to try LAP. Nice design, sturdier terminals than MK. Only downside is, while they are quite shallow on the back, they are still quite bulky. If your back box is a bit unlevel then there's not much room to compensate for it. That said they are very good value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could be dangerous With all the excellent reviews I wonder if the specification has changed. I found these a real pain to install. The terminal screws are too small in diameter to grip the cable securely necessitating forming a loop bending each wire back on itself before insertion and tightening up. Unless you do this there is a high probability of the wires popping out of the terminals. Screwfix need to address this because they could be dangerous.

What depth of back-box do I need for this product? How deep is it?

Asked by: Rilufa

when do you use double pole rather than single pole sockets?

Asked by: Rnbb
Hi Rnbb, The difference between single pole and double pole is that a single pole socket only isolates live, whereas a double pole socket isolates both the live and neutral. For that reason double pole sockets are generally considered safer.
