Weatherproof socket
28 May 2015
By AndynJoy
, Dorset
" This is a good value for money weatherproof socket. The only problem with it that you should be aware of if thinking of buying one, is the fact that because it is switched, the socket is offset slightly. This means that certain moulded plugs will not fit in the socket. I have not marked it down because of this as it is such good value. If I want to plug in something with a moulded socket that will not fit, I will simply put a new plug on..... It's not rocket science... "

A good alternative
28 May 2015
By NicoMac
, KuH UK
" It' s a cheaper alternative to some of the more spendy outside sockets.
The lid is a good secure fit as long as the plug doesn't have a cable guard.
I have a few of these now and will buy more when I need them.

A socket with substance
23 Jul 2014
By gwrfan
, Benwick
" I bought this to replace an old and cracked outdoor socket. It has a far more substantial feel to it and the fact that it is also switched makes it safer.
My one reservation is that it is important to choose a flat site for the socket as it could get out of square if screwed to, for example, a rough coated wall.

Good but flawed design.
6 Jul 2015
By TheBigRed
, Sussex
" It's quite obvious now I have fitted one and went to plug in a hammer drill. If your appliance has a large moulded on plug, the tail will not line up with the silicon seal in the base of the door. You can see it clearly in image 2, on this page. In fact all the single socket switched versions suffer from this not just LAP. So if you need to close the door up with a plug in, and achieve a splash proof seal, you will struggle. It does explain this in the instruction leaflet that comes with it, although it is a one liner at the bottom of the page, to cover their ars's. "

Just One Fault lets it down.
30 Jun 2015
By GrahamMacc
, Macclesfield
" No problem fitting etc. However as it has a switch the plug socket is slightly to one side. The sealed passage for the plug cable is central. Therefore if you have a heavily moulded plug it is difficult to get it to fit and seal. In hindsight I would have looked for one without a switch as I am unlikely to use it. "
