Rated 5 out of 5 by from Socket converter Tidy way to convert single socket to double. No trailing leads or safety risks and no need to chase out for twin socket box. Only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to change.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best design Be very careful undoing the screws. There is gap behind where they are located and they fall into the body of the socket. The first time it happened I took the socket apart to reach them. Bad idea, everything came flying out, I made a giant socket jigsaw. Bought a new one. The screws fell in again, several times. This time I did manage to shake the socket till they fell out again. Also make sure you have a thin strong screwdriver. The electrician screwdriver is fine for putting it together but when it came to screwing it to the wall it wasn’t strong/long enough. My thinnest flathead was strong enough but bust the plastic on the socket as it’s very thin and the hole is small. It does the job but the design is poor and not very strong plastic. The job took a lot longer than it should have and cost twice as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy to use Bought 3 to replace single sockets in various places to avoid the need for adapters. Used 2 so far, easy to fit despite the usual issue of terminals in a different place and order from the ones being replaced. Both in use every day and no problems so fay.

A couple of the sockets I am looking to convert have surface pattress boxes. Could I still use this product? (my assumption is not)

The faceplate is screwless so how does it attach to the back box?

Asked by: DAVEU101
Hello, The face plate has two screw holes that can be covered with screw caps (to hide the screws). When you need to access the screws simply take the caps off. This is a converted switch and needs to be screwed into a 1 gang back box. The screw holes are located just under the top prong entry point at each of the sockets. Thanks for using Q&A. [DG]

Which length of screw comes with this please?

I will need to go through this converter, and then the back box is sitting behind 15mm plasterboard and I need to know length to add 20mm or so. Thanks.
Asked by: Boxedin
Hello, Thank you for using Q&A. The electrical screws supplied are 40mm. Hope that helps. MH
