At Last....
23 Mar 2013
By pcelectrics

"..a BRITISH made product that does the biz and is reasonably priced. A competitor for that "other" makes quality.
The latches for the lid are also way superior and easier to use than " a certain other manufacturers very expensive product"
I've only knocked it down on value and reliability because I still think these are a shade expensive - sockets and RCDs are dirt cheap to produce these days - and I reserve 5* reliability for products I'm absolutley certain about. These do seem very robust though.
I'll be using these in the future."

"Front plate screws a bit of a faff.
Works well when tested with an RCD tester, tripped at 27ma.
Have fitted a lot of these and as stated the screws are a bit of a faff, otherwise excellent. No return calls to date to any I have fitted

"Man oh man, I've lost count how many of these Iv'e installed, They are so easy and the poles for the cables are very strong, no chance of them ever coming out. The price is fantastic and just don't know how other manufacturers get away with it to be honest. All of this range is brill and great value for money."

Not for Christmas
24 Oct 2012
By GrumpyJohn
, Grantham
"Just as good as the more expensive MK model but be aware that if you are hoping to plug in your outside Christmas lights the plug is usually too big because it has a transformer built in it, the lid won't shut properly thus allowing ingress of water & moisture. ( But this is the same fualt in all outdoor sockets )"

"Installed this and non RCD version for customers. Terminal placement allows easy fitting. Includes seals to cover fixing screws. Its up to your own diligence to seal cable input. Reliability yet to be proven over time but so far so good. Thank you Screwfix."

"This external dual RCD socket is very good value and easy to install. Time will tell if the plastic clips will stand the test of our great British climate (Thinking of the frosts etc)
However you could almost buy two of these for the cost of the most expensive external RCD socket!!

nice unit for the money
8 Oct 2011
By markharding
, swadlincote
"For the price can’t fault it at all.
Unit has nice very dark frosted cover so we placed a plant in front and it can’t be seen at all on the outside wall.
2 separate switching units and an rcd for the price complete with an outdoor box is great. Cover can also be closed and plugs left in unlike some other cheaper units. And also locked to stop children getting in or other people switching stuff off, but it is plastic so anyone serious could get in if they wanted
Fixed dead simple and everything was in the box fittings wise. Only thing needed was some silicone to go around the cable entry in the rear panel."
