" I have used these for years and found them to be the best. Especially useful if you have problems with your fingers or hands because they have large rocker switches that are easy to operate.Can not find them cheaper than screwfix. "

Crabtree double socket.
6 Jan 2015
By Cols
, Esher
" I have fitted a few makes of socket over the years & Crabtree have been around for a long time. I can't fault them, the design is nice, the switches are positive, the wiring terminals use good quality screws and are a sensible size and also laid out simply for easy access. ( so there's no twisting the wiring around to get to badly placed fixing screws) The additional earth terminal is a real plus, great product! "

Solid socket

" Needed to replace some old sockets but did not want cheap ones. I can remember my Dad saying years ago that Crabtree was a good make. He had been an electrician for 50 odd years, so had been around a bit, hence I went for these. So far they are working well, but only time will tell for sure. "

" Good value and good quality from a respected brand.
Well constructed and easy to fit.
It was a replacement for an old crabtree switch and the positions of the terminals were the same making it simple to use as a replacement with no wire trimming "
