Rated 1 out of 5 by from One To Avoid I kicked back the cheaper LAP version of this product because it was a pain to install. I'm wishing I'd stuck with them as these have caused more work and cost than is necessary. Build quality is pretty poor and the back planes are made up of two parts of fairly cheap feeling plastic and are way to pliable for their own good. This makes screwing them up to a good fit against the back box and fitting the equally thin and flimsy cover plates very difficult. Having tried to fit out a large living room with outlets and switches from this range I have had to convince the customer not to go for the screwless look, take the hit on the cost of the various switches and outlets as quite frankly I'm not even sure Screwfix would take them back. And invest a couple of extra hours poly filling around a couple of damaged back boxes. One rather noticeable design fault is that the outer part of the sockets back plane is clear plastic. When set against the wall the cover plate does not touch the wall and the prismatic effect of the clear plastic that is left showing between the face plate and the wall makes it look as if the decorator was having a bad day. Definitely one to be avoided.

I would like to fit this socket in my kitchen, the kitchen has glass splash backs. Will this socket fit ok with the extra depth of the glass?

Asked by: rowoogar
Hello Rowoogar. Thank you for your question. The back box depth required for this item is 35mm. The standard screws supplied with this product are 30mm but it may require longer screws depending on the thickness of the glass splashback etc. There is a range of screws available on Screwfix from 40mm to 75mm - Thank you for your interest in VARILIGHT products.
