"I know there are cheaper metal clad sockets available, but I needed to replace an older cheap socket which was switching unreliably with a better quality replacement item.
MK stuff is just made really well, and the layout of the cables makes for easier wiring, which when you're using existing cables cut to length makes a difference. This one;s out in a damp garage so hopefully the build quality will help it last. Too early to really comment on reliability but all my other MK sockets have lasted years with no issue."
"Bought these medal clad sockets for my shed, they are up to the usual MK quality. Nice smooth rounded corners. good quality heavy gauge back boxes. They are DP double pole which means total isolation, many forget that the cheaper brands are only SP single pole."
