Rated 4 out of 5Â by void Good value stylish range
I had used these before - I liked the look, and the price is great for a flush plated range of fittings. I found the earthing connections a bit more restricted than the ones I was replacing, but not a big inconvenience. I've never had a big problem fitting the fronts - all clipped on OK - and some my walls are anything but flat. I suspect that problems will be caused by overtightening fixing screws - I could see this would distort the backing plate.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by frankieboywonder Ropey, but no alternative
I have these, and the light switches, in both my bedroom and living room and it must be said that the previous reviewer is correct - the face plates are indeed difficult to make stick. The problem is that if you want brown metallic sockets and switches there really doesn't seem to be any alternative on the market.
It seems random, insofar as some click on ok and others simply refuse to grab, however a small blob of No Nails in the middle is enough to solve the problem, just so long as you know you'll never want to take them off again!
