MK Masterseal Plus 13A 1 Gang Switched Socket
Broke in 6 months
Fitted for daily 13Amp charging of a PHEV car, so paid the extra for MK 'quality' product.
All seemed well when fitting and in first use but after 6 months the hinged waterproofing cover broke off at the hinge.The hinge consists of a metal rod fixed in top of flap which clips into two small plasic retainers on the socket body which are way to flimsy and have inevitably broken off leaving the whole socket now quite useless. Meanwhile at work two BG General equivalents at half the cost are still going strong. Seems you no longer get what you pay for with MK - very poor design/quality AVOID!

nice looking socket
I always fit MK switches and sockets. Always been reiliable. Nice and water tight attached to outside house wall. Quite big but does have a lot of water proof sealing.
Item in stock Screwfix very helpful as always.

Wouldn't buy anything else
I have always found MK to make the best products. They may be more expensive but if you are a good electrican and want to do a good job, use these.
It is little things like the mounting screw holes already made and the are made outside the IP rating so you don't have to seal the holes you have drilled.
