Outdoor sockets

By Deaco

" They do as they say on the box. Perfect for outdoors and a brilliant price. Easy to install and fit.
No fault with them at all and as always the staff in the store itself were brilliant, helpful and friendly.
Ideal, would happily buy and recommend again. "

Splash proof sockets

" These are reasonable and simple to fit and comply..... just the job and help reduce costs on a multi eaves lighting job, better than using junction boxes and quicker to install prewired lighting units. "

Cheap, Sleek, practical.

" These are one of the best looking outdoor sockets very sleek and practical, also one of the cheapest.
Only downfall you have to link the 2 sockets yourself very easy done in seconds. "

Not bad for price
14 Sep 2013
By Streetlighter
, Cheshire
" Picked up a couple of these sockets from my local counter i knew they where not the best product avalable but the budget was close on the job.
The enclosure is nice and tough the knockouts require either a sharp knife to remove or a 20mm hole saw
bad points are the terminals are very shallow and small and the screws you need a really small 2.5/3mm terminal to unscrew them, also the two socket outlets require you to fit a link between them which is extra time on the job stripping a scrap of twin to make link wires.
The screws that hold the faceplate to the backing box chew up very easily.

Volex ip55 unsw twin 13a
25 Mar 2011
By Sparks
, Morden
" Have bought this and what a load of rubbish.
There are 2x 13a sockets.
Have to interlink them in to terminals that are more suitable for 1mm /1.5mm .
Only 2 fixing holes.
Cost £14 and was expecting something better, value this unit @ £5.

outdoor 2 gang socket

" When electrician arrived he discovered that each gang had to be wired separately. Did not have time to return product so could only have one gang wired as not enough armoured cable to do both. Very disappointing. "

Do not buy this item
28 Nov 2009
By Stewarty
, Glasgow
" Cheap, but exactly as described by the previous reviewers. IP55 rated ? I don't think so. The insides of mine have rotted due to water ingress, the screws inside have rusted and will have to be drilled off to chuck the whole thing in the bin. If I could rate this item with zero's I would. Spend the extra money on an MK or similar. If Screwfix read this I would suggest deleting it from the catalogue, its that bad. "

Poor quality
14 Aug 2009
By Army
, Surrey
" Very flimsy construction, when fixed to flat surface the whole unit can move when opening flap. The flap only lifts to 90 degrees so a RCD cannot be plugged in. The casing also distorts when the two fixing screws are tightened, which makes it difficult to attach cover , also with two screws. No idea yet as to how weather proof the unit is, but have doubts. "

Poor Design
11 Sep 2008
By herbidemic
, Cheshire
" Very poor design. The two sockets have to be hard wire linked. The sockets for the wires are too shallow and the clamping screws are too small. Very difficult to get three wires into the sockets and almost impossible to tighten the screws when three wires are used (i.e. when a spur is require). "
