Excellent Value Socket
4 Sep 2012
By DerekV
, York
" Received 15 of these brushed chrome sockets today and fitted them straight away. My house is 13 years old and the sockets were used to replace the old white plastic ones. Fitting was easy, the main issue being to ensure that the wires were laid carefully to ensure that they didn't stop the unit screwing down fully. The brushed chrome face plates clipped on easily and look great. In my review I have reported 'Performance' and 'Reliability' as average because I have not had time to test this yet. In summary, these are easy to fit, excellent looking and appear to be great value. "

LAP 13A 2G DP Switched Socket
14 Jul 2011
By Pritch

" I researched many sites and local DIY stores but found Screwfix offered best prices so ordered numerous sockets and switches for new house.
Received the delivery next day, free of charge all well packaged and no damage.
All sockets/switches are of very good quality.
Overall very impressed and would recommend both Screwfix and this range of LAP products. "

Good price and service
28 Aug 2011

" Bought these just under a month ago and been really impressed, the store reservation and pick up was straight forward and hassle free.
The sockets themselves have proved to be excellent value for money and far cheaper than any of the other high street diy stores.
The electrician who fitted them also commented on how good they looked with no screws and had no problems fitting them.

They look great!

By Rosco66

" I would recommend but with a word of caution. One of the pack of 5 is now useless as the internal cable connection is very easily over-tightened and has now stripped the thread - so tighten carefully.
They certainly look good though.

A bit of a tight fit
28 Nov 2014
By tdurham
, Brighton
" The parts round the edge of the back of the plate are a very close fit to a standard back box. If the box is slightly distorted you may not be able to push the socket flush to the wall.
Also, if the box is not quite level, you may find you cannot level the socket using the box's adjustable lug. "

Not the easiest sockets to fit
23 Nov 2014
By SJH7225
, Crawley
" These sockets look very nice before installing.
Installation: you will need to ensure the back box for these sockets is perfectly flush with the wall and also the plaster is an exact fit. Anything else will result in the socket not fitting properly. They do not work with dual pa tress boxes either as the faceplate is oversize compared to a regular faceplate. The back box needs to be no less than 25mm.
Features: I haven't really had a chance to test properly, but from first impressions they appear solid and the switch action is smooth "

" Plated steel terminal screws. Plates flex and if not completely flat, the cover will not fit. Needs a deep box. Looks good when fitted but overall not as easy to work with as many others. "

poor quality product
5 Jun 2013
By colin52
, leicester
" The size of the socket body makes instalation very hard as the body only just fits into standard 25mm deep metal box.
When fitting the 2 off fixing screws ensure screws are not too tight as this distorts the plastic flange making front panel fixing poor. "

Diificult to install
24 Sep 2012
By Sparky77

" Do not use with dual accessory backing boxes, as the fittings are oversized and overlap when you try to fit them. The dimmer modules in the range are worse. There are other manufactures of screwless plates that in my opinion are far better, and do not have compatability issues with standard backing boxes. "
