Double socket in cream
30 May 2015
By Colin324

" I was pleasantly surprised when I found this cream coloured switched socket, and it would match our décor too.
Easy enough to get the front panel off, for fitting to a back box, but make sure it isn't a 25mm one, as it can get tight with the wiring.
The front panel isn't particularly thick and you have to be very careful not to bend it when removing, or refitting, it to the back unit. If it gets deformed in any way, it doesn't look quite so neat. The socket has a plastic surround, to which the front clips. If the mounting surface isn't flat, the plastic gets deformed and the front panel no longer fits as neatly as expected.
It's the risk of bending the front panel that gives it a 4* rating in performance. With a removable faceplate to hide the fixing screws, it could do with being a little thicker - I would happily pay a bit more for a thicker one. "

Cream socket with metal rocker
3 May 2015
By Wharfedaler

" I ordered these to match a cream colour scheme in my lounge. I expected them to be functional, but I didn't expect them to be so beautiful. Rarely do I have my breath taken away unwrapping a product, but I did when I unwrapped the 3 I bought. They are heavy to handle, giving you the sense of quality, and the delivery is superb. I don't suppose many people will see them, but if they do they will leave a lasting impression. If you want the best, discard the rest! "

" As the faceplate does not screw back to the socket but clips onto a plastic plate, the wall needs to be not just flat but FLAT.
The coloured faceplate sits on the plate so the plastic although thin is visible.
Apart from that they look the business.
