" This is an excellent idea to suit wall mounted tv's, as the angled socket gives a tighter position to the wall for cables to run. Easy to fit, would definitely recommend for these applications. "

MK Co-ax socket
11 Jun 2016
By
, Fife
" Fits a standard single back box. This has a push fit connector for the centre conductor and a clamp for the outer screen. It requires that the cable be bent at right angles to make it fit which in my opinion is poor design.I would have preferred a screw terminal.
Unlike most coax sockets this one is angle slightly downward which can be useful if the socket is exposed because it is less likely to be kicked when a cable is plugged in.

Signal killer
4 May 2016
By
, Liverpool
" I was disappointed - when plugging the coax cable straight into the telly I had no problems but once the socket was introduced the signal was lost entirely. I do live in a weak(ish) signal area and am not an expert in these things however the socket I bought to replace this had a simpler design and caused fewer problems. "

Absolute rubbish
18 Feb 2015
By
, Liverpool
" Got this because of the angled socket as fitting tv to wall. Surprised to see no securing screw for ariel cable, but followed instructions supplied When tuned TV in hardly any reception, tried again then zero reception, gave up after several attempts of re doing the the wire. In the end twisted cable together and reception perfect. Best using a cheap one "

Expensive rubbish!
3 Nov 2014
By
, Dorset
" I've got many other MK products, which I'm very happy with, but this one is terrible! After fitting it, my TV reception was awful. The way the centre of the coaxial cable is connected is bad. It just relies on friction, but not very much. I replaced it with a superior and much cheaper one (Screwfix part no. 25407), which works a treat. "

Difficult to fit
28 May 2012
By
, Exeter
" I bought three to replace existing aerial sockets because I liked the 45 degree socket, which keeps the cable close to the wall.
Unfortunately I couldn't fit them because:
1. Barely enough cable was left by the electrician who wired the house to allow me to strip back the centre core 20mm (as instructed) and not have a really tight bend in the cable.
2. The outer cable clamp wouldn't grip the folded back outer cable braid without crushing the hollow insulator. Even then the cable wasn't secure since the "no screw" fixing of the inner core doesn't provide much strain relief.
I had to abandon the idea of replacing the sockets and unfortunately, since I made the stupid mistake of opening all three packages, I don't think I can ask for my money back. "
