"A very easy conversion from a double socket to a triple, all done in 5 minutes. It's only suitable for a socket that is flush to the wall. A very neat design."

Simple Solution
5 Nov 2012
By
, West Lothian
"A quick, easy, cheap and SAFE way to increase the number of socket outlets without cutting into the wall for a bigger patress box.
This is the third unit I have fitted. In one case it was a replacement unit after a piece of internal insulation over a terminal cracked off when the unit was removed. However, this has not reduced my faith in the product; just made me more careful.

We all need extra sockets

"This is a clever solution to the perennial problem of too many appliances and not enough sockets. Simple to fix and no mess because the original backplate is used. Each socket has a separate on-off switch too."

Easy upgrade
12 Aug 2008
By
, Plymouth
"With the increasing need for extra sockets around the house, this is an easy way to add those extra sockets. I have added at least one of these to every room in the house and have recommended it to friends with the same problem.
The socket is well made and the switches are positive in their operation. Installation is easy with the connections well marked out on the back. There are two earth connections so you can earth the back box if it is metal. It also has a 13 Amp fuse fitted so you cannot overload the socket.
The one thing that lets it down, is the covers for the fixing screws (which are under the earth pin position) and are a devil to remove once in place. Although there are several replacements included on the back of the socket.

Just what I expected
8 Feb 2013
By
, Watford
"The first thing to note is that Screfix's price is just over half of that charged for a very similar product at another well-known DIY store.
It seems to do what is required - I've only just fitted it so can't really comment on reliability.
Like others, I found the supplied screws too short and had to use the screws from the original socket- they needed to be longer because the wall was tiled around the socket and the socket positioned on top.
My only other observation is that the cable points are very close together so all the cables end up behind the same part of the socket rather than being spread out. This made it difficult to get the socket back into the box and risked pulling the wires out."

Easy install - stiff switches
1 Aug 2013
By
, Merseyside
"These are easy to install and I used them to convert 2gang sockets to 3gang. However the switches are difficult to turn on and off for anyone affected by arthritis in the hands - and so I had to take them out again and install a full 3gang socket. Pity as this took much longer."

A load of rubbish
14 Aug 2010
By
, Northants
"I installed some in our kitchen, easy to wire but a bit bulky and don't look too good. But they do give me the extra outlets I need. The switches are flimsy, and over time inserting plugs had become almost impossible. The socket twists and creaks horribly. I have now removed it and replaced with with an MK socket. Looking at the bask of the socket when I took it out it had all cracked and broken up."

Good idea but...
22 May 2009
By
, Cheshire
"I have used these sockets before and they are a reasonable solution to outlet poverty especially in kitchens.
BUT! The switch mechanisms are flimsy and will fail after considerable use. Also, the fuse drawer is in a daft place (to the side) so it can be inaccessible if fitted adjacent to other switches.
I have found some british plugs offer considerable resistance to insertion as if the earth pin wasn't operating the safety shutter properly.
Clipsal offer many excellently designed products unfortunately this isn't one of them."
