Solid socket
14-Sep-2013
By
, Surrey
"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."

"Well designed and constructed. Rounded corners and curve on switch face makes them look good.
Never had a problem with any Crabtree accessory."

"Used these many times but recently had some failures due to stiff rocker switch. Disappointed to have had to replace so will probably try MK sockets as reliability seems to be an issue"

"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"

"Well made, easy to install with all screws pointing the same way and capacity for 3 x 2.5 sq.mm. cores. A bit expensive but worth it."

these are NOT white
04-Nov-2012
By
, Dartford
"Really disappointed to have ordered these goods and now I need to return them because they are NOT white! They are actually a rather grubby looking cream which looks horrendous against the other white in my house. This has caused a great deal of inconvenience as I cannot do the work when I planned to and have to find the substitutes elsewhere ASAP. I am really cross that they have been advertised as white but they are definitely not white. Don't buy this product unless you are looking for an off-white cream colour which looks like it is grubby and old"
