Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good. But could be better, This is a handy bit of kit in my PAT testing box. I use it to check sockets between tenants and if I need to check my wiring is right. Watch the video. If your colour vision is not great, there is very little contrast between blue and green. Think that the red, when it glows is showing a problem, hopefully it will not display! For the price, you might hope for a little case to stop breakage in your toolbox, Cheap enough to replace when the plastic goes. Peace of mind at a cheap price from Screwfix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and Good Value We have a house that is littered with bad DIY, including some extraordinary wiring that would give anyone nightmares! The LAP Socket Tester is a very useful device. Not only in identifying existing faulty sockets, but after you have fitted a new socket - since you are attaching the socket 'blind', you do not know if a wire has popped out of it's terminal - the Tester will tell you the state of play. Using the Tester could not be more simple - plug it in, switch on the socket and read the three LEDs (plus tone of sound emitted). A table of what the results mean is clearly shown on the face of the device. There is an extended table, covering 18 faults in total, in the User Manual. This is a well made device (IP30) and good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Little Tool Added some extra sockets and used the socket tester just to make sure. It put my mind at rest.

Detects 14 wiring conditions

The manual and the front of the tester shows 4 fault conditons and 1 correct condition. The packaging states "Detects 14 Wiring Conditions" How/what are the other fault conditions and how do I identify them ?

Reverse cables

My socket kept tripping, I used this and it showed it was correct.... However when socket was opened, the live and earth where in opposite sides....
