MK 13A 2-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket White
Good quality and look great.
I was looking for a reasonably priced socket that looked good - and here it is! Love it!

Not just any old socket.......
I originally bought a whole load of LAP brushed stainless steel sockets and switches for our 1930s house only to realise they were not a patch on the MK gear.
We returned all of the LAP ones the following day and replaced them with the MK ones. The MK switches and sockets are better made, really nice satin finish coating that resists scratches, really smooth easy click on and off, strong white plastic that gives the socket a solid feel and they almost have a retro feel to them.
The best thing I loved about the MK products we had bought is that they are low profile and if you have slightly uneven walls due to the age of the house or slightly shoddy electrical work from a previous home owner like we do they are very forgiving and give the illusion that they are flush and straight.
They were all very easy to install and the socket and switch screws and nice and long even to reach the most awkward pattress. these are also made in the UK, so top marks for that!

A good product.
I bought this at Screwfix for less than half the price of a competitor!
It is very well made, with a positive switching action, and a moulded-in red ON indicator that cannot wear away.
The terminals are very deep, and grip three 2.5.sq.mm cable cores securely, essential if there is a spur from that socket.
There are Two earth terminals for high integrity earthing use.
The child proof safety shutter is great to keep kids out of the power supply!
