" I have bought a few of these now and they are a great time saver, when it comes to converting single sockets to doubles.
Product is well made and great value for money, so will be using more of them.

" This is an excellent piece of equipment and makes the task of changing a single socket to a double socket a piece of cake. This saves a lot of work and energy. Superb idea and it was cheaper than any other supplier. "

2 sockets for the price of 1

By BigAlly
, Dalgety Bay
" 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.

Clipsal converta socket

By Telham
, Nuneaton
" I used these units a few years ago and found them a godsend. Easy to install, remove the
single socket, wire in the converta socket and
screw to the existing back box. Easy Peasy so
simple with labour and time saving, that`s why I
still use them today.

Very simple to fit. Looks good
24 Nov 2014
By Tone123
, Burnley
" Very slick-looking product with its curves & shiny polycarbonate housing & swish-looking switches. Bought 2 today & fitted both in 20 minutes.
It protrudes from the wall about 1 cm more than a standard socket housing but far less obtrusive than having a fat socket adaptor in a single gang socket.
It also features the safer new shutterless live/neutral inlets I note, which means it's much safer for children messing around, as the circuit is only made live by the SIMULTANEOUS insertion of BOTH live & neutral pins to switch on the live terminal rather than by just something shoved into the Earth slot. It's also fused but you can only see this by removing the front plate from the connection box.
Large terminal screws & terminal blocks, already half-unscrewed to save time when mounting. When screwed to the wall the unit rigidifies very satisfactorily, looks great & the attractive rounded switches are very positive yet tactile.
Mounting screws included, which fitted my box very well, also a pair of spare screw-hole blanking plates in case the originals fly out & you lose them under the bed.
You certainly wouldn't want this product to supply 2 heavy-demand major domestic appliances such as a washing machine plus dishwasher, for example, but for running a bedroom TV+Freeview box or a computer setup and bedside light it's ideal. Trailing sockets/adaptors from a single gang socket are SO 1990's.
Recommended.
Very clever idea & the service from Screwfix was of course exemplary.
Very slick product indeed.
Can't comment on reliability, hence 3 stars, but it works very well & looks great.

Brilliant Product, Easy to fit
18 Nov 2014
By Daviediamond48
, Glenrothes
" An amazing product, can be fitted by anyone in minutes and works a treat ! Must also add that this was the first time I've used screwfix, and I bought several sockets and switches. I ordered online and received a text 15 mins. later advising that my order was ready for collection. What's even more amazing is that this was on a Sunday afternoon. I don't think you'll better that anywhere. "

Great product
2 Nov 2014
By Dencaretaker

" Great product for replacing single socket to double without all the hassle. The only downside is the fact the included screws are too short to screw into some of the existing knockout boxes. It would be good if they added another couple of longer screws. Overall very pleased & will probably purchase more. "
