Good quality, easy connections
2 Jan 2016
By
, Lancs
" Proper brilliant white finish and screw covers and smooth rounded edges further enhance appearance. Robust construction and connections. Can't comment on reliability since only just installed. However, based on what I've seen so far would definitely make this my choice in future. There are less expensive sockets but their quality and appearance does not compare "

Looks like a premium socket
15 Jan 2015
By
, Pontefract
" This socket looks and feels better quality than some more expensive sockets I have previously purchased.
I never used the screw covers as the socket will be removed this year when the kitchen gets ripped out.
An unexpected bonus was having an earth connection at either side which made wiring much easier.
I cannot give more for performance and reliability as (1) it either works or doesn't work and (2) I only installed a few days ago but so far it has performed perfectly and has been reliable :-).

" After doing some renovations on our house I purchased some sockets from a high street DIY shop, not only was it 3 times more expensive but the quality was shocking (no pun intended!).
What can I say, fantastic quality and great finish, would highly recommend LAP products. "

Better Than Most
28 Sep 2012
By
, Wrexham
" having looked at several different makes of socket, so much more expensive than this, I eventually decided on these, and wasn't disappointed, the plastic feels a little thin, but feels stronger than the one it replaced, only negative is the small covers that go over the screws, just couldn't get one to stay in so didn't bother at all, end of the day, most sockets don't have them, so no big issue. only time will tell as to reliability hence the average rating.

buy the pack of 5
21 Jul 2012
By
, brum
" buy the pack of 5 (code 49620) it's half the price.
reasonable quality but plastic entry to wiring tunnel is fractionally to narrow making it harder to get 2*2.5mm in, and more importantly the plastic at the top of the patress is quite high restricting how much socket can be twisted to bring it straight, and have to clean off all plaster at top of patress to make it fit at all - which is annoying.

Looks pretty, but no MK
11 Aug 2015
By
, South West
" Generally I would use MK Logic Plus however they didn't do a specific socket that LAP did, so I thought I would give it a go.
Looks 'pretty', build quality reasonable however screw quality not as good as MK, you cant get as much purchase.
my main issue is that the rear of the socket has a much wider and taller profile than other brands, so the tolerance within the patress box is reduced "

Cheap and Cheerful
26 Jan 2015

" I have used these sockets for a new kitchen and dining room, and they are ok for their purpose. My only critism is the wire clamping mechanism (screw) could be better as it can take several attempts to ensure the wires are secured properly. "

Fair but not the best
18 Nov 2015
By
, Westcliff-On-Sea
" " Having used various different makes of sockets in the past, but found the L & N to close to the bottom center which had main feeds coming in so it's Important not to show any bear wire on the CPC Feed and L&N so be careful, fact it has 2 earth connections at the top for easy wiring. I will definitely think whether to buy this type again. Might stick to good old fashioned MK or alike "

Not impressed
31 Jul 2012
By
, Wolverhampton
" I was not impressed with these switches. They feel flimsy and cheap. There is not much of an overlap so the plastering needs to be good round the back boxes and if the wall is not perfectly flat be very carefully you do not screw them down hard they will easily crack.
Will not be using again
