Best extension socket

"If you can rewire a three pin plug you can fit this. Takes no more than 10 minutes and is the best way to increase number of sockets in a neat way. Excellent product."

"The delivery was super quick and the product is so easy to install would recommend if your planning to go from a single plug socket to a double. The only reason I have give reliably 3 stars because I've only just installed it. It seems a robust piece of kit and I can't see it being a problem."

a doddle to fix
20-Sep-2014
By
, Macclesfield
"A great product!
Let me get rid of a dodgy multiplug sticking out into the room. Took minutes to fit. The usual gripe about the screw length but I re-used the old ones. I lke the tight fit, makes it feel more secure.
Going to do a few more of these now!"

Converta socket FAB !!
07-Sep-2014
By
, Paisley
"Victorian sandstone home with limited power sockets. Struggled with problem and had brilliant "eureka" idea of a socket conversion...
... just wish I had thought of it first :/
Before I went to Patent Office had a quick hunt online and found Clipsal Converta Socket.
Brilliant product. Easy to fit, even for novice, under 10 mins start to finish.
Great value, great product. Nuff said."

easy fit converter sockets
29-May-2014
By

"these sockets are easy to fit and save time and money chopping in bigger boxes.
cheapest and by far the best way to convert your 1 gang switch sockets to 2 gang one's.
supplied with 2 x screws and 2 x screw covers and 2 x spare screw covers attached to the inside of these units..

Does the job
28-May-2014

"Fitted easily. Slightly more proud of wall than standard single sockets and provided screws did not reach the wall box so had to use originals from existing socket which was disappointing. These are covered by plastic though so the "new" look is not necessary."

Great Converta
23-May-2014
By
, Ely
"This is an excellent quick no mess way of increasing a single socket to a double socket. No need to make a mess of existing decoration. Just replace with the converta socket. Its a bit deeper the a normal double socket, but nothing very obvious. I converted a socket in less than 15 mins. Don't forget to turn the power off at the mains first."

A quick fix that lasts
22-Apr-2014
By
, Surrey
"It is often the case in houses built in the sixties and seventies that there are insufficient sockets in the rooms, particularly the bedrooms which often only have one or two single-gang outlets. This product neatly converts a single socket to a double switched. The result is very attractive and does not stand out from the wall much more than a flush-mount 2-gang. I have installed at least 20 of these in the last few years and I've never had a problem. You may find that if the existing box is deeply recessed that you need longer screws, other than that it is a complete kit.
My only slight criticism is that you have to be a bit more careful to insert the plug completely straight than you would with an MK flush socket.

Clipsal Converta - spot on!
21-Aug-2013
By
, Dunbartonshire
"In my previous house, most of the sockets were single unswitched. These Converta sockets were ideal for changing them all to double switched, in order to double the socket count, without, as commented by another reviewer, the need to chisel out brickwork or replace the existing wall box. The electrical connectors are solid, and although initially the external plastic seemed a bit flimsy, they all seem to have survived much use without any sign of deterioration.
In my current house, much better socketed to start with, I thought I'd not need any. But there was a TV aerial socket in every room, which we did not need, so some have now become double socket spurs instead, thanks to Clipsal.
All in all, a very useful product, sold by Screwfix at a very good price, much cheaper than elsewhere for the same product.
So buy it from Screwfix!

Easy Socket Upgrade!
01-Mar-2013
By
, Stevenage
"Great product - simple for upgrading a single socket to a double without a huge amount of extra work. Depth of socket from the wall is about 2cm - roughly 1cm extra on the original socket, but looks perfectly in place. Only thing I would say is that the supplied screws are too short (as per other reviews) but not a problem as you can use the original screws instead. Would highly recommend and purchase again in the future."

Great Alternative.
10-Jul-2012
By
, Sutton Coldfield
"The Clipsal Converter socket is a great way to add additional outlet sockets especially on internal brick walls, where normally to install a larger face-plate it would require choping-out the brick. The Clipsal socket is only a little thicker than a standard face-plate, so once fitted it looks as good as any standard outlet socket."
