Good quality, safest switches
23 Dec 2013
By SilverAppleyard
, South East
"There are a raft of cheap switches and electrical fittings around these days, but for something you touch and look at everyday it is worth paying a little more for some good quality fittings like these MK sockets.
The design has a rounded edges with a higher quality plastic than other switches, which make them nicer to the touch and more aesthetically pleasing.
MK sockets are also one of the safest on the market due to their safety covers which will only open the live and neutral when only open when the pins are pushed open simultaneously. No need for dangerous "safety" plugs.
The only negative about the sockets is the size of the connections which are smaller than older ones and it can be harder to get the wires into."

Pricey but well worth it!
8 Jul 2013
By petertheplumber

"These are without doubt the "Rolls Royce" of white flat plate outlets. Yes you pay a little more but the quality and ease of connection to even short cable tails in the back box makes them far superior to the "cheapo" makes. They look great too!"

"Bit hard to go wrong, but they're easy to fit, and the soft-edge profile looks the business. I'd always pay the pennies extra to get this over some square-edged version."

Buy the best!

By Gromit13

"I've always specified MK even when they were way above other manufacturers' prices because they are the definitive style for white sockets. I can't believe they are so cheap from Screwfix - cheaper than my usual trade supplier. Beautifully styled, easy to install and they never go yellow or brittle like some of the cheaper options."

Safer with young childen
7 Jan 2010
By TomC
, Horsham
"These are a good quality electrical socket, both easy to wire and looks good to. Well worth paying that extra bit for compared to cheaper makes, especially at the reasonable Screwfix prices. However one distinct advantage over other makes is that it is virtually impossible to expose the live and neutral shutters without using a plug, which then itself shields access. This is because the design only allows the shutter to open if plugs shaped pins are pushed into live and neutral with even pressure simultaneously. With other makes, poking something into the earth aperture will then open of the life and neutral - potentially giving a shock risk to inquisitive small children."

Quality counts
18 Feb 2009
By Veloce
, Oswestry
"I've used the cheap ones, and they're OK, but when you've lived with them for a bit, and tried the MK equivalent, you appreciate the extra quality.
The edges are just slightly rounded, and the switches click more easily and softly.
I've started to change to MK at home, and even halfway through a re-wire at my daughter's house.
