"A solid, reliable product, though the faceplate can display a noticeable convex bend if there are many cables in the back box."

3 Way Socket

By scorpiodave

"Bought to replace an existing 3 gang socket that did not have switched outlets.Have being looking for one for ages as they are quite rare. When I saw that this one was made by MK, I had no qulms about buying it. This socket feeds my Hi-Fi so the quality and 3 gang is a must."

Excellent Product

"Up to MK's usual high standard. The down side is that Screwfix do not stock the 3 gang metal flush box and getting one can prove a bit of a challenge."

Great Product, but...!
21 Mar 2011
By Stempy
, Rochester
"This is a great product, well built and perfectly finished as with all MK products. Much better to use a purpose built 3-gang than a 2-gang extender in my opinion.
Beware however! Although Screwfix (and many others) offer this product it would be wise to find a supplier of metal flush-mount knock-out boxes first - not an easy thing to find believe me!"

Handy product
16 Jul 2013
By andyew
, Edinburgh
"This product came in handy to convert single and twin sockets to triple sockets these were handy when a landlord of an HMO needed sockets upgraded but without disturbing the the decor or flooring.
One thing though the patrice box this socket fits onto to is very flimsy so this is the downside of the product"

Quality 3 gang socket
8 Aug 2011
By stinky84
, Swansea
"Good quality and easily converted a surface mounted 2 gang to a 3 gang socket when used with the recommended back box to provide and extra socket that was required.
Quite expensive for what it is but neater than using a switched extension lead which was my other option.

25% fail

"Bought and installed four, one had neutral fault on middle socket. Screwfix replaced, no problem.
Despite this seems well made, but do wish there was a surface mounting box for it. Had to buy metal boxes from another place, and put battens in the cavities to mount them."
