Does exactly as advertised.

" Perfect if you need to add that extra socket and don't want the hassle of chasing a double box out. Slightly deeper faceplate to accommodate the plug pins but hardly noticeable. "

" I simply needed to change some flush fitted single sockets to doubles. This product is well made, easy to install fits into the single socket box so no need for a patress. Excellent, I can recommend this product without reservation. "

great idea and great product
26 May 2015
By Clivers
, Belfast
" Bought this to provide extra socket without the obligatory 4 gang extension (obviously).
Very simple to install and is essentially indistinguishable from a normal double socket apart from the screw positions. Feels very solid and secure once fitted and I'm very pleased with the result. I'm likely to replace any single sockets in the house with these things now.

" A great product, saves the hassle and mess of chopping in a double box. The only issue is the profile stands out prouder than a normal socket, this wasn't an issue for me this particular time, so well pleased.
Only just fitted so don't know about the reliability yet.

great answer to a common need
11 May 2015
By threedegrees
, MK
" Stuck with a need for extra 13 amp outlets and no free sockets I turned to Screwfix website and the search feature. Sure as eggs is eggs they came up with an answer. Convert a couple of single sockets with Clipsal Converta. With limite space to play with the slim profile of the Converta worked a treat. In no time at all I had the outlets I needed.
Thanks again Screwfix

" Exelent product make sure walls are flat tho as it can cause issues if replacing a single socket where there is a dip or bump in the wall around the socket leaving a gap as the cover is secured to the original back box . But a good time saver looks good to "

By BigAlly

" If you have a single socket and want a double you could remove the single socket and box then open out the space to accept a double box and socket or you could fit a converta socket.This was very easy to fit and was well made with a solid quality feel to it.Once fitted the square screw covers finish the job very neatly indeed.An excellent product at an excellent price.

Clipsal such a time-saver
21 Jan 2015
By bigwindy
, Bangor County Down
" Even in houses up to the '90s with modern T&E there are rooms with a single socket. This item is a smart and simple solution to twin the outlets with no fuss. The connection points are well placed centrally with over-sized terminals to permit easy re-wiring, so the DIY'er can work with confidence. "

2 into 1 does go!
30 Dec 2014
By IrascibleBadger
, Belfast
" This appears to be a great quality double socket, designed specifically to upgrade a single wall socket into a double one.
Fitting was extremely simple and quick.
For convenience all the screw terminals are arranged in a central position over the original socket cavity so you don't need to have especially long wires. Then the new faceplate simply secures into the original screw holes via cleverly positioned holes just beneath the earth pins. These are then concealed with special caps which just press on. They even provide spare caps attached to the back of the socket and the provided mounting screws are pointed to aid threading.
