Good value multipack

, Bedfordshire
"Good value and easy to swap over from previous white. Purchased with a number of other similar products to update kitchen and untility. Can't comment on their longevity as only installed in the past couple of weeks but they look good.
Only needed 4 but cheaper to buy 5!

"Great value product that looks the part. I only needed four but bought the box of five because it was cheaper....Always one spare for the next room we put these sockets in! Nice solid click when switching on and off and the brushed steel doesn't seem too affected by finger marks."

Neat & Easy to fit
10-Feb-2013
By
, Manchester
"These sockets are very easy to fit and look great in place. Have finished our new kitchen to a really good look. No problems at all with cable size, plenty of room and easy to locate. Fitted easily but the screws had to be replaced with longer ones. Wouldnt be a problem in dry lining boxes, but we have metal boxes with screw location quite deep in the box, and tileson the outside. Overall very pleased an would recommend to anyone."

Socket update
23-Aug-2014
By

"Socket is well made and rigid.
The terminals are positioned slightly further apart than the older socket that I replaced - this could matter if no slack is available on the cable. Twin earthing points do make life a little easier though..

"Replaced all plastic ones for these - look great.
Had a couple of faulty sockets (2 out of 15) that looked fine but had a loose switch connection - just check when installing. No drama - quick exchange in store, great customer service.

Very Good Sockets
07-Feb-2013
By
, hertfordshire
"I'm a sparky so I get to play with lots of different brands of wall plates etc and I've just fitted these at the customers request and I was impressed. Some previous reviews say that the terminal screws are easily snapped off or damaged, I didn't find a problem with this at all, infact, from my experience, they seemed more than capable... All the back boxes are 25mm deep and I didn't have a single problem with room for cables using 2 x 4mm T+E)
As for value, I have installed more expensive products than this which have been worse quality, so these are great value for a 5 pack.
How long these will last ?? anyones guess, so I can't comment on that. These will scratch easy and they will probably dent if you bash them with a corner of a table or similar but a plastic one would shatter to bits just the same...Overall, impressed...

"I bought a number of LAP switches and sockets in brushed steel and having compared prices (both internet and high street), I found that the Screwfix website offered them at incredibly low prices.
I am delighted with the purchase the kit is exactly as described, was delivered on time with no fuss and is very good value for money.
The instructions are also comprehensive which is very important if changing out older switches for newer more modern ones (new regs etc.)
Overall I am delighted with the purchase and would recommend them to anyone.

LAP Sockets
23-Jan-2012
By
, London
"Have to agree with Caveman on these.
To me these sockets represent good value, and are more than adequate for the job - as well as looking great on the wall.
Good to see the ASTA mark on the back of the socket - reassuring to know the products have been tested to the highest standard.
Terminals all in-line so save fiddling around, and managed to fit 2 x 4mm with no issues."

Screws are fine
19-Dec-2011
By
, Burnley
"I'd have to disagree with JDS1 - I bought a pack of five of these before reading his review so before fitting them I deliberately tried to strip the terminal screws on a spare one - and I found them to be fine, more than up to the job. They aren't the greatest sockets in the world but wifey wanted them for the looks. They have dual earth terminals which is a great plus point."

"Fitted several of these in my wife's kitchen and they are what they are," you pay peanuts, you get monkeys"
Plates deform easily when you tighten the screws so the plate looks like a banana edge on !

Look Nice but..
01-Nov-2011
By

"The sockets look the part but the screw terminals are appalling. You need to be very gentle with the screwdriver. It’s a fine line between tightening the screws enough to keep the cables in or stripping the threads."
