"I don't normally write reviews however I'm making an exception for this product. I searched and searched but didn't think I could afford these brush stainless steel sockets, until I found them here! They have made my new 'moderately priced' kitchen look stunning! We have them mounted on a stainless steel splash back and they are just perfect! I'm very pleased with this purchase."

very good value for money

"Easy to fit. No problems with poor screws or screw threads.
All connections tightened up fine.
No Burr's or problems with the finish.
Short screws supplied.
Low contact resistance on testing.
I have not seen how these cope with a toaster and a kettle after a year so no comment on electrical robustness.
I had a 3 pole fan Isolator in this range and the Neutral switch contacts didn't work.
but then I have had the same thing with BG products.

"Nice looking product that feels well manufactured. They dont leave a great deal of space in the knockout box when installed so you need to think aboit vanble entry. There are two earthing point which is handy and they are all poles are clearly labelled. For £4 each a rwal bargain for such a nice looking product."

LAP Steel Double Sockets Multi

"Excellent Value for money (5 multi pack), once in place they could look better, almost appears that tightening the retaining screews bends the plate slightly."

Sockets good value & screws OK
9 May 2012
By russ50

"As a 5 pack it represents very good value especially with the 15% off others in the range. The screw terminals are OK, had no issues with tightening threads. Inserting 3x2.5mm cables was fine (but 4x2.5mm would be difficult if not impossible ie if 2 spurs had been taken off already).
The only other point was that the 20amp switch also puchased had poor terminals (too small for 3x2.5mm cables) and the screw size was smaller than on the sockets. Pity as the light switches and the 13amp switched fused spurs were fine.

Good value & good looking

"To me these sockets represent good value, and are more than adequate for the job - as well as looking great on the wall.
Good to see the ASTA mark on the back of the socket - reassuring to know the products have been tested to the highest standard.
Terminals all in-line so save fiddling around, and managed to fit 2 x 4mm with no issues"

"Look good and the switches have that positive click feel to them. However the terminals on the back felt a bit weak when tightening them up thought the screw would shear off.
Reliability I cannot comment on yet as only installed for client yesterday.

LAP 2G 13A Switched socket
19 Dec 2011
By herrneef
, Kilmarnock
"Ordered a pack of 5 sockets on 1st October. I managed to strip one of the threads on one of the brass sleeves where the Neutral grub screw enters; I did successfully manage to install the other two sockets without further ado, however.
My electrician mate attempted to install the remaining 2 sockets at the weekend. He stripped the grub screw sleeves in the process.
60% wastage is totally unacceptable. This reflects the very poor quality materials used in the manufacturing process and the lack of any quality control
