Outdoor plug

"The product does what is says on the tin at a minimum of cost.
I would recommend the product, however the level of expectation needs to reflect the price being paid. Yes there are better, more robust products on the market but at a higher price."

Socket to em

"Easy to install and fair quality for the price.
Be aware you will need a hole saw and grommets to make the cable entries. Cover clip could be more positive.

Decent socket, poor housing
4 Jul 2012
By
, Moffat
"The locking clips on these housings are not satisfactory, particularly when you consider that to use the socket, the front cover must be unlatched, the plug inserted and the cover closed again each time that it is used - switches in the same range can be operated with the housing closed, so the latches are seldom used, which is just as well. The latches on this range of products are both stiff to operate and also brittle - a very bad combination. Screwfix have credited the item in full and I have purchased an MK socket to replace it. My advice would be to spend more and get a socket which is safer to use and is very likely to last much longer. I have another MK weatherproof socket in use which is still in A1 condition after 5 years!"

weak lid
18 Jun 2012
By
, Manchester
"Quality of the housing and number of cut outs is good and it seems quite weatherproof.
Unfortunately I managed to break the lid off the first time I used it!
Maybe I'm clumsy but the hinge snapped quite easily. I'd normally expect something like this to pop off instead of breaking?
It was cheap though.

Do not buy this product
15 May 2013
By
, Milton Keynes
"I bought this item in preference to other alternatives due to it's compact size.
However after only 3 months intermittent use the plastic lugs which form the hinge mechanism developed stress cracks and eventually broke, rendering the socket unusable.
I replaced the socket with an MK version rated IP56 - NOT the IP 66 version which is simply huge. Unfortunately Screwfix does not stock the IP56 range so I had to go elsewhere.
Do not waste your money on the LAP socket - it is not fit for purpose and you will end up having to replace it."
