"Bought the double waterproof socket to save the aggro of running extension leads out every time I wanted to mow the lawn or use the power washer. The good lady is now in the garden with her lap top hooked up to it..... It's a quality item robust and good looking too. I really liked the fact that the wiring sockets were good and large none of these small jobs that wont take anything but small core cable which isn't suitable for the job. Highly recommended by me."
"I searched online through a number of outlets for a quality 13A 2G DP Switched Socket. My search led me to Scewfix & I was amazed at the quality & value for money of this product. So much so I also bought the accessories to wire & fit this.

"Some "Outside" or "Garden" electrical fittings are sold being IP41 which is just light splash proof and not suitable for exterior use as defined by the 17th edition of the electrical regulations, however this product is genuinely IP66 and fantastic quality and good value."
"I bought the outdoor socket over 2 years ago and it is fitted outside of my shed in Spain. It was easy to install and works well without any problems. It is situated in direct sunlight and subjected to extremely high temperature and occasional freezing temperatures as well as heavy rainfall. There has been no ingress of water or noticeable deterioration of the the plastic on the body or front cover and the catches still work perfectly. Overall this is a great outdoor socket."
"Have installed many of these. All customers delighted with them. Not had any go faulty. Can terminate armoured cables in them or use 20mm compression glands. lid will close even on preformed plugs unlike some other makes."
"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.
"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!"
"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."
