"no idea why people dont like these, they are much easier and safer than the regular chassis and cover type. The amount of times i've inspected a regular one to discover an earth has popped out due to trying to terminate two wires in an oversized terminal.
These have separate screw terminals for in and out and take half the time to fit, also you can twist it to face you as you connect the cooker opposed to crouching down fiddling with grub screws against the wall"

Review 2 for LAP 1-Gang 45A Cooker Outlet Plate White
"Exactly as the previous reviewer said. Most connection units have a separate 'chassis' that connects into the box first, allowing you to loop the supply cables round neatly and then fit the appliance cables and finally the face plate covers it all. That's not the case with this unit; here what is effectively a heavy duty connector block is mounted onto the face plate. Whilst this does have the benefit that the supply and appliance cables are held in place by different screws, it makes it really awkward to connect. If you have a deep back box to work with, plenty of cable length and good access you can use this successfully, but in any other case use the conventional type, the extra few pence are worth it for your sanity if nothing else! I won't be using one of these again."

Review 5 for LAP 1-Gang 45A Cooker Outlet Plate White
"This is a one piece unit unlike most rivals that have a separate cover to allow access to cooker side wiring without disturbing wall side incomers. That makes it very hard to install given the gauge of the wiring used for cookers. If your wall side cable is long enough and the pattress is very deep it will work, but if for replacement take care incomers are at the back, outgoers at the bottom."
