good clean nothing fancy

"only problem is the depth of the terminal block on the back, If using a 25mm back box then make sure the box is not flush with the plaster or you will have problems getting the face plate to sit flush."

Dbl Sockets!!
28 Oct 2014
By Chowder

"Looking for brushed steel sockets for a DIY project, great value and solid feel, be careful with the depth when choosing your box, you lose a little depth because of the type of finish, things get a little tight! Good quality build, they look and feel great, the only downside is white inserts, would have preferred grey, options available on other brushed steel switches, but not the flat ones! So had to make a compromise."

"Sockets look great and they're stronger than many flat plates which end up bending when the screws are tightened"

Quality Sockets

"The LAP sockets have a quality look about them and have a solid construction. Just fitted them but look like they'll stand up to regular use. A bargan at £5 each (box 5 for £25)."

Good value, good looking, but!
9 May 2012
By MarkyMarkMan
, Hemel Hempstead
"Bought a whole bunch of this range for my new kitchen. Great value, especially when on offer!
GOOD STUFF:
Concave pin inserts guide plug in well
Nice rocker switch action
Very thin front plate sits extremely flush
Flat head screws maintain the flush look well
NOT QUITE SO GOOD STUFF:
The thin front plate does flex more then most
Terminals are ok but not as robust as some
Integral gasket is not the usual foam type and doesn't "grip" my glass tiles so well
Not ALL things available in range, IE no 4 gang light switch etc
The supplied screws with the light switches are very short
OVERALL:
Still a good buy and would recommend. Very pleased with final job. Time will tell as to reliability.

Some just don't work
6 Feb 2014
By HarryJ

"Bought 10, had to return 3 as they just didn't work. So almost a third didn't work!!
My advice would be to spend a bit more on something better quality.
Unfortunately want to keep all my sockets the same throughout the house so I'm locked in now... I foresee plenty of trips to screwfix in my future"

"I wouldnt recommend LAP products to anyone but this has a good finish and the quality is decent. I would only recomment this because of its bulk offer that is on at screwfix at the moment. However if price isnt an issue, stick to crabtree."

Look good but poor reliability
14 Nov 2013

"I've put in around 30 double sockets into a renovation project, they have been in about 6 months now. I have swapped 5 out already, 1 side of the socket fails & trips the breaker Another 2 have failed today, again on 1 side only.
They fail when you put a substantial load through the socket, i.e. fan heater, large saw, etc.
I don't know whether I've just had a faulty batch but its very annoying.
For those looking to fit these, you need DEEP back boxes. If you are replacing old sockets, these probably won't fit. If you are doing a new build but the deepest back boxes in you can find."
