Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great affordable socket These look very smart. . So much better then the normal standard one's. Great sleek curved socket adding a modern touch to the home. The only problem I encountered was with the terminal screws. . 2 of the 3 failed to turn. I initially thought it was my inexperience. In my anger I pulled the switch apart to see that 2 terminal screws had a spur in them. By now I had destroyed the socket so could never had taken it back. Purchased another and fitted with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Very good quality and although these are just plain white they still look better than the old plastic white ones as they are shiny and new! And better quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RELIABLE SOCKET I always use MK products. They are robust and safe. The sockets have accessible wiring terminals and the terminal screws are substantial.The price from Screwfix was very competitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks the part Really nice look to these switches. Got 3 for around the house/garage and they're easy to swap out. Edges are rounded and switches have a good positive feel. Be careful not to over tighten though as the plate is thin. I had what felt like plenty of room left to make them snug against the back box when one cracked.

Is mine a one off?

Has anyone else found the cable clamping screws too tight, with what seemed to be a badly cut thread?

Answer: 
I bought the MK logic twin from socket from the Northampton store on Mon 3 Oct. I had exactly the same issue. Could not tighten or loosen the cable clamp screws. Took it back to the store armed with screwdrivers and checked out the two more replacements taken from the self serve bin. Two of these also had very (too) tight clamp screws. The sales person got another from the back and could screw/unscrew the third attempt. This was still a little tight - but I took it and it has done the job. Another customer mentioned that he had bought five - all of which had the tight/miss threaded issue.
Wasted over an hour and half of my time and travel fuel. Never had issues with MK fittings in the past and they have been good quality. I am now very wary and will have to "test" the clamp screws on futher purchases. I see a number of people have had the same issue. NOT GOOD !!!!
How many others have "put up" with the problem and not posted a comment / review ?

Hello Philwak,

A 2 gang socket would be 25mm if you want this Flush, or a 35mm for extra wiring space. If you wanted surface, this would be product K2142WHI

I hope this helps.

25mm back box

Can anyone confirm this will fit in a 25mm back box?

The attached 'Instruction Manual' has information for 'Metal Frontplate' and 'Logic Plus' variants. However, this is listed as 'Raised Slim' profile.

Answer: 
Hard to say without seeing it, but it is probably to allow for an earth wire to the metal back box.
