Rated 4 out of 5 by from copper socket nice finish, looks great, screws are hidden. wall to be flat so plate will clip on good hard clip, keeps face plate attached to socket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You need a PERFECTLY flat wall A right fiddly process, getting the copper cover plates on. Even though they were on a flat plastic splash back, they didn't fit perfectly, I think because the holes were spaced v. slightly different from the backbox, causing a slight buckle. I asked myself "is it worth it, just to have a screwless finish?" They do look ok, but being a perfectionist I'm only giving it 3 stars. The single outlets are probably less prone to irregularity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap fittings but expensive I bought double sockets, switch and aerial point, these are all very poor quality, there is a plastic bezel round the metal part that fixes to the wall, these are flimsy and clipped in place and so keep coming off and bend when screwed to the wall. The copper face plate is supposed to clip to the plastic bezel but all of mine don't fix all the way round. Also these items are expensive and definitely not worth the price, the Crabtree items are far superior and similarly priced so assumed these would be similar quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not ideal I fitted the plug socket fairly easily, but unless your wall is perfectly flat, you will struggle to get the faceplate to click into place securely, Also the switch mechanism is low quality and looks flimsy. Perfect colour though if you have a Rose gold themed room

Can this socket be installed on freshly plastered walls?

Asked by: arts2680
Hello arts2680, thanks for your message. We'd always recommend waiting for plaster to be fully dried prior to installation, waiting 2-4 weeks, or installing a temporary gasket under the products to protect them. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.
