Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for. Within a couple of weeks the face plate was cracked. Took it back to Screwfix who replaced it straight away. This time I carefully checked to make sure the box was perfectly aligned in case some distortion had been the problem. After first use the face plate cracked again, same place. The plate is quite thin. I didn't bother returning it, but replaced the broken socket with an MK one (involved a bit of shoehorning to get it to seat properly). Also lid is rediculously difficult to latch/unlatch, especially if you use a plug with a bulky flex outlet. Won't buy one of them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product at a good price This is the second one I have bought. First was a double socket. Easy to install. Connections easy to get at. Locking catch is stiff to use just needs more force that expected. Would purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First class product This outdoor box was purchased to replace a previous box which had broken. The box was very easy to fit and appears to be much more robust than the old one. Has a good locking facility and a visible light to show when it is connected and live. Very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I’ve had to replace this socket several times as it’s constantly breaking. I’ve bit the bullet for the next one and spending a bit more on a different one to see if it lasts any longer.

Can the cover stay closed and watertight to IP66 when a 13 amp plug (and cable) is inserted in this switched socket?

I am thinking of using this fitting to power an external water feature
Asked by: EDALUND
Hi EDALUND, Yes, the enclosure cover is designed with a gasketed cable outlet between the arms of the cover clip to allow for the lid to be latched closed whilst in use, so as long as your water feature uses a regular UK plug (not a power transformer type over-sized plug) then you should be fine.

Can I change socket inside so I can fit MK Essentials Double RJ45 Ethernet Socket?

I am checking this for the summer house fittings.
Asked by: Areg
Hi Areg, The Storm range Weatherproof socket enclosures have been designed specifically to work with the BG 800 series Nexus Moulded plate profile, which we do not expect to be similar to any MK range as they are quite prompt at issuing legal challenges if anyone gets too close to their patented designs.

How many 20mm knockouts are in the base?

Need to daisy chain to another socket so I need 2 knockouts in the base.
Asked by: NickT69
Hi NickT69, The back-box for our 1 gang Storm products is perfectly square with 1 knockout each on 3 of the sides and 2 knockouts on the fourth (so you can easily install it with this side at the bottom to meet your requirements).

does this socket come with external sealing glands or do you have to purchase them separately

Asked by: James67
Hi James67, As we cannot know in advance whether an installation will use conduit or flex, twin & Earth or Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) cable we do not increase the wastage (and cost) of the product by including all redundant options but rather leave it to the installer to add the appropriate 20mm diameter gasket or grommet to whichever of the knockouts they need to.

What are the dimensions inside the box ? Regarding fitting a plug into it (cm)

Asked by: Samshill
Hi Samshill, The internal dimensions of this enclosure are intended for regular sized plugs, being 2.78cm deep and 7.95cm square (give or take). Please be aware that the actual socket pin holes are not central so as to allow space for the switch, but this should not cause issues for normal plugs.
