Simple Solution
5 Nov 2012
By Steamboat
, 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.

Easy upgrade
12 Aug 2008
By Spacehopper383
, 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.

Clever socket extender
21 Jan 2015
By FoDDLR
, Forest of Dean
" When a double socket is insufficient, this 2-3 socket converter does the job a treat. It is necessarily deeper (20mm) than a normal twin socket outlet because it has to accommodate the length of the live and neutral pins. But the outermost earth pins neatly fit within the width of a 2-gang metal box.
The switches are very positive.
MY ONLY GRIPE is that the body has a sticker announcing "Complete with push-on screw cap covers". I was unable to remove this without leaving a difficult-to-remove sticky residue on the socket. The label is superfluous anyway as the whole converter comes in a cardboard box so the label is not visible until the package is opened.

Just what I expected
8 Feb 2013
By Jacqal
, 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. "
