"I bought this to finally sort not needing extension leads dragging all around the garden, story design and simple instructions if you don't know what you're doing.
Everything seems to work fine although the moulded plug on my appliance was a little tight in the housing, but I guess it will be watertight at least.

"Easy to install. Very impressed with the quality and the way that the plugs are made splash proof .When the cover is sealed the power cables are clamped closed by the clips against silicone seals. Great when using a pressure washer."

Lap ip66 double gang socket
24 May 2014
By
, Cumbria
"Good quality product for the price. The lid shuts nice and tight with the plugs connected inside and the seals also work well. Fitting was easy and it is very secure on the wall. The product functioned as expected without any problems. I can't comment on its reliability as it has not been in service for very long, but I think it will stand the test of time."

"I purchased this on a click and collect from my local branch. What a great friendly service. The socket far out wieghs the exsisiting one we have in place which over the years has now given up. Easy to fix and it's switched so we can leave the switch in the garage on. Can't say about long term performance yet but signs are looking positive."

"This item was ordered on a click and collect basis from pictures in the Screwfix catalogue. When it came to fitting I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and general appearance, so much so that I went back to buy another one. Obviously it's early days to review the performance and reliability but the signs are very very good."

"I have fitted much more expensive & better, i have also fitted far far worse.
Did not distort as some cheap units do, I would buy this again although its only been in use a short while.

"Great value for money. Nice quality. Bought to provide power to pond pump and light.
Gives a good waterproof seal but I've installed it in an IP65 box to make sure there's no nuisance tripping.

"Easy to fit and seems pretty good quality. The only criticism would be its a bit difficult to close or undo with plugs in, especially for ladies who don't want to break their nails."

"I saw this was on offer & thought i would give it a try, was pleasantly supprised it has quite a nice, easy to use catch system, the internal socket is metal so not too sure how that part will 'weather' , it fits nicely on the box with a good gasket that stay's in place !
Overall a good product, of course only time will tell on the reliability, i think the BG equivalent is better but it is a fair bet dearer.

"I fitted two of these sockets yesterday as the client had requested an outside socket on the front and rear of the property.
i have fitted the cheap nasty ones before that are only IP rated when the flaps shut and i have installed the most expensive ones on the market.
This LAP product is well made the backing box does not flex when secured to the wall the 20mm cable entries can be easily tapped out with a hammer and screwdriver.
Terminals on the back are a little small but perfectly fine.
The quality for the price is amazing and i shall be installing these over the market leader from now on.
Ive given four stars for overall as i cannot comment on the reliabilty as of yet although a few months down the line i will know how durable the sockets really are
