"Excellent value, easy to fit. Much thought has gone into producing a good design. Can't really comment on reliability, but there doesn't appear to be any reason why this should be a problem.
Nice product - I'm impressed!"

"Well made socket. Good quality assembly with effective seals and catches. My armored cable gland fitted securely.and i particularly liked the little seals supplied to waterproof the box around the screw fixings.
Excellent kit for the price."

"Seems well made enough, I fitted the single gang version last year and have had no problems with that.
My only gripe is that no cable grommet was supplied for the cable knock-out in the back of the pattress, they suggest you use silicone sealant instead - eurgh!

Good and solid.

"I'm an electrician and so I have fitted a few different water proof sockets before. I'd have to say these are probably the best waterproof sockets I've had to work with. Solid casing, tight seal and most importantly relatively easy to open the cover. A lot of waterproof sockets have small catches you have to press in or pretty much get a screw driver into leaver them open. These sockets just have big thumb tabs that you push down on and it clicks open. You do have to use a bit of force but if it was a loose fit it wouldn't get an IP66 rating."

"Ordered 2 of these double sockets , the ordering system was simple and easy to use. When collecting the staff were knowledgable and helpful,I am delighted with the product they discretely mounted on the gable wall and serve the purpose exactly as required. Thank you Screwfix for coming to Bangor Co Down.

"Just installed two of these weather proof twin sockets and found them to be just as good as the more expensive brands.
The knock outs just push out , no drilling with a 20mm cutter .
Very easy and time saving to fit.
( Part P electrician ) will be buying more.
Just the job.

Fantastic value, ditch MK!

By Jeff7777

"These are great... better looking, better features (neons, decent latches) than the MK Weatherseal and way a fraction of the price. I've had three installed for 6 months now and no problems whatsoever. They're easy to cable up both with SWA/glands into the bottom and with T&E through the wall into the back.
What more can I say? Buy it!"

Outdoor double socket
1 Aug 2013
By WightGuy
, Isle of Wight
"Awesome. I would happily pay the full price for this product, but with 20% off it is even better.
It is strong and robust doing everything it should. I was surprised it even has neon's to show if a socket is turned on. The only negative is that I thought the numerous knock outs for cable entry would be flexible/rubber, but as I was using a round cable the right size drill hole is ok with a little bit of silicone sealant to make sure is as good a seal as a rubber grommet.

Looks and feels good

By Stef6421

"I haven't actually fitted this socket yet but I have had a good look at it and have rated it accordingly.
For £14.40 on trade, I can't really complain about much!
It has 2 locking clamps, and also a bit to put a padlock through - should you need to keep the kids out!
Performance and reliability i cannot say at this time but the rubber seals look good and looks like this will last just as well as the MK sockets I would normally supply/fit."

EXCELLENT KIT

"This is a well built piece of outdoor electrical kit. It is robust but easy to install and use. The addition of a padlock loop will be useful. It also looks good in the garden unlike alternative versions."
