" Good robust product used to replace broken item. The included diagram showing the length required for each wire was a tremendous help and helped in getting it fitted in no time. Great price and speedy service. "

" Some previous reviews have noted poor performance, but as i had spare cable this was a cheaper solution than a new cable extension.Easy to fit and used outside on pavement and stood up to being pulled about.So far no issues "

OK but doesn't last long
11 Nov 2015
By
, Bolton
" I use these trailing sockets in the garden, house and garage. Maybe once or twice a week. After a few months it gets difficult to push a 13amp plug into the sockets. And then soon one of the sockets stops working (ie. push plug in but no contact inside).
So I just buy another one.
The casing is strong and brightly coloured; I have not broken or cracked a case yet.
Summary: I like the product, but it seems not very well made. "

Adequate but expensive
25 Jul 2011
By
, Ware, Hertfordshire
" Does the job but you could get a four-gang pre-wried extension lead for very little extra cost from many DiY stores. Not weather-proof for outside use, brittle plastic rather than rubber - lets see how many accidental impacts it survives.... "

Trailing Socket
3 Sep 2011
By
, LANCASHIRE
" This is another example of poor quality unamed electrical goods being offered for sale by Screwfix. The product IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, it is made to look tough but it is made of brittle plastic and smashes with ease, has a poor cable restraint, and doubtful connections.
Not what is expected or required of a trailing lead socket which has to work in a rough environment.
