Fantastic value, ditch MK!
18 Dec 2013
By Jeff7777
, London
"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
31 Jul 2013
By Stef6421
, Fife
"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
23 Jul 2013
By PFGthehandyman
, Accrington
"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."

"BG Nexus 13A 2G DP Switched Socket, excellent value even if you buy it at the normal price but if you wait until it comes on offer at half the price then it is double the value, Ideal for garden ponds, security lights etc, and anything that you want to leave permanently on in the garden."

Bought when half price
27 Apr 2013
By Getonline
, Glasgow
"I bought 4 MK 1G IP unswitched sockets from SF at half price (£9), then I saw these belters which were on at half price too (£12), returned the 4 MKs and bought 6 of these, better build quality and 2G and switched. The only diff is the cable entry on the latch, MK has a nice wee gel pad."

"this unit is very good value for £12.49
it could benefit from the lid being deeper so as to accommodate the bulky transformer plugs that are in use on some garden items

"Fitted a few of these. A good price particularly for IP66. You can pay more for IP54 sockets. Wel made, easy to fit and with advantage that remains IP rated with a plug inserted - cover still clips shut - unlike other alternatives. Customers like them. Recommended"
