great value product

"Robust looking housing with plenty of cutout's for cable entry, enough space behind the socket to get 2 sets of wires so I could extend a spur up the garden on a single cable.
Only just fitted so can't say how long it will last but it seems good quality and at a good price.

Great weatherproof socket

"I've already bought a twin version of this socket from Screwfix to replace an older inferior unit which dropped to pieces.These sockets are top quality.The seals are excellent and the cover clips very robust.The smoked covers mean that you can see from a distance when power is switched on.Thoroughly recommend these sockets."

"For the price this is a good quality item. You need to drill holes for the cable entry (if from the rear) and the fixing holes but these come with sealing grommets,
Was easy to fit and seems to seal well. Has only been fitted for a couple of days so cannot give top marks yet for reliability.
Will certainly use this item again and would recommend.

"Excellent product, Solid build. Lockable and waterproof, or resitant even when a lead is connected. Cleverly designed and straight forward (even for me) to fit. Used three times so far and very convenient. |Much better than long extension leads - and no voltage drop. Recommended."

"Seems a good, well designed product. Easy to install as an external socket - but be sure to drill the recommended drain hole and seal the small gap on the top rear edge of the housing with suitable mastic.
By setting up some unconventional wiring, I've enabled this socket to serve two different and very useful purposes.
It is mounted on an external garage wall - close to a parked vehicle. The socket can provide 240 volt power when required - taking a feed from a power socket inside the garage.
However, if the car battery ever needs recharging, the plug to the mains feed in the garage is unplugged and inserted into a socket providing a 12 volt feed from a battery charger. A cable to the car battery is then plugged into the extermal weatherproof socket. The battery can be left on the vehicle and charged no matter how bad the weather.
Obviously, careful checking of polarity when setting up the wiring is vital. Also - when not in use, it would sensible to unplug the wiring to the external socket . That way, it always needs to be set up for a specific 12 volt or 240 volt task. Pumping 240 volts into a car battery would be a VERY bad idea!"

"A bit klunky - but serves the purpose - watch the drain holes are well orientated. Lamp a bit dull to see. Good tight catch. Not a drop of water got inside! Great price."

"Very thoughtfully designed and made.
The lid opens upwards from the top, thus protecting any plug connected to it.
Plenty of waterproof grommets and gaskets to ensure a watertight solution.
The lid has a locking switch that provides a snug fit.
Overall very well made - far superior to any similar product I have come across - excellent value for money."
