BG Double Socket - Excellent!

" Have bought other double sockets recently and they were rubbish, these however are good quality, easy to wire up and look good once installed, especially with the small screw covers included. Buy these, you won't be disappointed! "

Good Value Product
6 Aug 2014
By Curtley
, Sudbury Suffolk
" Nothing wrong with these from a fitting point, like the screw covers, how long they will stay in the plate is to be seen.
From a performance point of view they have not been installed long enough to know, but as long as they last 12 months that will be good.

Bad contact design
5 Nov 2014
By KotBegemot
, Cambridge
" The cables are held in only by the bolt itself. There is no plate pushed by the bolt against the fixed contact plate (as for example in other sockets from MK).
As a result the clamping of multiple cables and branching off the socket is not particularly reliable.
Granted, this is a case of you get what you pay for - it is cheap. "

Poor Quality
13 Nov 2014
By Berko
, Hertfordshire
" The finish to these is poor. The surface of the socket is covered with blemishes and marks due to poor quality moulding. Returned to the branch along with the 2G BG patresses (which were even worse quality) and exchanged for Crabtree which were only very marginally more expensive.
Avoid BG.
