" We bought stainless steel sockets and switches to finish off the new kitchen we've just had fitted.
The fittings look great and were easy to fit as the instructions are straightforward.
I'd certainly recommend this product to others.

" Good value and easy to swap over from previous white. Purchased with a number of other similar products to update kitchen and untility. Can't comment on their longevity as only installed in the past couple of weeks but they look good. "

Let down by description
28 Jul 2015
By Athlone
, Southampton
" Purchased and returned as unsuitable because the description did not make it clear that there was no side outlet for the appliance cable.
Many plastic SFCs can be used either way but you cannot have a knockout is steel! Unfortunately LAP don't seem to have this option in their range. A view of the back on the website would have made this clear.

Good but why no unswitched FCU

By johnsbegood

" Ok FCU but why don't they offer an un-switched FCU like every other socket manufacturer? Sometimes you just want an un-switched version....... "

13A switched fused connection

" wide square holes for wire entry and 'narrow' diameter screws made it difficult to ensure a truly positive connection i.e. screw pushed wire out of the way "

Horrendous FCU layout
20 Dec 2012
By Itchy
, Southampton
" Well, they are what they are, cheap.
One customer bought these, and asked us to fit them. We then needed to buy a couple of extra to match, hence me being asked to review them.
They look ok for the money, but the layout of the cable entries are all over the place.
The earth connection isn't very deep so trying to fit 2 ring main earth's, plus the earth from the back box proves difficult. Even until the point that some of the earth connections actually sheared off.
Would I recommend? Not really, no... unless your budget is very 'VERY' tight. but I would not expect these to be a long lasting re-locatable product.
Spend the money and buy a better quality, better made, product. "
