Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing After have the kitchen replastered, decided to replace the switches, sockets etc. with new ones. Bought these along with a number of other very disappointing LAP items, but what it doesn't mention is that they are 'low profile'. This means that more of the switch gear has to fit in to the back box. After fitting one I noticed it wasn't quite level, so unscrewed it to make use if the 'slide' in the back box. When level, the socket would not screw into the back box as the top of the switchgear behind the face plate caught on the top of the back box! So I either replace the back box, live with a wonky socket or replace the socket. Not really a choice so will try and return these to Screwfix. The other observation is that the screws that hold the wires in are of a soft metal that deforms the slot slightly on tightening. So if you have a perfectly level back box, want a low profile socket and are only going to fit once, these might be OK. 28 Apr 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product To be honest there is not a lot of difference between one double socket and another, despite what DIY'ers seem to think! As long as the plug fits snugly into the socket and the switching mechanism works that's it mate. Its about price vs. durability after that, and these deliver. 27 Apr 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value If you need a new double plug socket then look no further. I thought all plug sockets were the same, WRONG. The quality of these sockets are excellent and the price is outstanding. I originally purchased 3 boxes of these and when I ran out and needed an extra socket or two I went to my local hardware store and got a couple of theirs. I have now purchased more of these to replace them. 20 Apr 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not bad for the money For the money these are ok. Look good. But the terminals on the rear are poorly positioned and impede the installation of the sockets. 15 Apr 2016

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
These are the socket itself, to use them you would need a galvanised installation box or a pattress box depending on your needs. http://www.screwfix.com/c/electrical-lighting/back-boxes/cat7230011
