LAP Cat 6 RJ45 Grid Module White
Maybe this is a one off?
I have only purchased one of these LAP sockets. I also had a few other LAP items which were fine. The socket seem similar to others I have used on first glance but there are some differences.
First, installation is simple, just like any modular socket. But after that, I was less happy. The spring cover is tricky to get out of the way, most socket covers have angled entry and tabs that mean the RJ45 plug just pushes the shutter away, it didn't on this one so you need two hands to plug a lead in, one to lift the shutter with a fingernail and the other to put the plug in.
But worse still, there seems to be no connection beetween the pins at the rear and the actual socket. OK, this is probably a manufacturing fault on this item, but at this price it costs me more to go back and replace it, as well as all the lost time in testing it so I'll look elsewhere for a replacement.

Easy to use
Used as part of a module set up for TV. Easy to use and looks good. Have used the old style box on the wall before but am sold on this product.

LAP Cat 6 RJ45 Grid Module Whi
I have been using these for just over a year now, they are easy to fit, very compact and tidy. I have fitted well over 20 and have not had a problem with reliability or performance but time will tell. Too early to give maximum ratings but satisfied so far.

Easy to use data socket.
Simple to use and does what it is supposed to. These modular ones are simpler as the whole faceplate can be positioned, then the socket connected before just snapping it in.
