Does what it says on the box.
30 Apr 2015
By ChrisPB
, Derby
" Replaced an outside socket that I've had for a few years which was good apart from the fact the lid was really stiff to open. Proof of that was after I had some contractors working who were using the outside socket. They left me with a broken off lid. Replaced it with this item and yes, the lid is far easier to open and no, the mounting holes didn't line up. Of course they didn't, they never do!
Doesn't come with any entry glands.

" I needed a weatherproof socket for the garden and searched all local suppliers and websites and found that ScrewFix had the cheapest LAP 13a IP66 double socket available. They had plenty in stock and, as always, collection was speedy and efficient. What more could you ask for! "

" Bought one of these primarily based on the price. It's a decent quality item to be fair and great value.
If you're in the market for an outside double socket, get one of these. I can't think of a reason why you shouldn't. "

Well Made Waterproof Socket
14 Apr 2015
By DevonFemaleDIYer
, North Devon
" I can't really mark reliability yet as not had it long enough but product appears to be well made and tough.
The electrics are very easy to connect and it is not necessary to connect links between the two sockets.
The most tricky thing was fixing the back box to the wall as the screw holes are deeply inset and it was very fiddly trying to get the screws to stay in place until tightened.
Please note that as, I suspect, with all waterproof sockets, it is not possible to fit items with mains adaptors as there is insufficient space between the bottom of the socket and the edge of the box. "

" Does exactly what you would want. The front cover latches shut and the cable clamps securely so this will really keep the weather out. The offer price makes this a must for anyone needing a weather resistant socket. "

Cable exit hole is a bit small
10 Feb 2015
By MarkS
, Southampton
" This product is very nice - in my opinion better than some of the more expensive ones, because the fixing screws are outside of the waterproof section. This is a small detail and very simple but it means you won't have water ingress through the screw holes.
My only criticism is that the cable exit holes (below each socket) are a bit narrow. If your device has a big square-profile strain relief on the cable below the plug, you can't shut the cover with it connected. "

" An outside socket has been on my never ending to do list for ages now. I read the reviews and took the plunge.
Nice solid sturdy box, and has been in the recent rain/snow/wind and is still bone dry.
Reliability I have had to knock a star off as it has only been fitted for a couple of weeks.
For £12.99 (now £19.99!) it was a bargain and worth every penny. "
