Good for the price

" This lamp holder provides exactly what is needed, all of the relevant terminal blocks, reasonable cable length between the base and actual socket.
However, I can't give a 5 star reliability rating as the plastic that the base is made from is a clear plastic which is fine but from the feeling I had while screwing in the terminal screws I am not certain as to how brittle the plastic is in relation to the screw holes. Removing the 'blanking' part of the base was hard enough that I'm not too concerned but I am not 100%. As long as you are not being heavy handed with it you should not have any problems.

Quality issue

" Looks good and dismantles fairly easy. Found terminal screws extremely tight two were still left as could not release. When reassembling the outer cover very fiddly to try and re-seat it snugly back over the terminal connections. Will not buy another. "

Disappointed by terminal block
1 Dec 2014
By spinchemist

" Bought this as I expected a higher quality product than I would get buying an own brand item from a big DIY store. Very disappointed, screws in the terminal block have been driven in so hard (presumably by machine) that they are incredibly difficult to loosen. I've managed to get most of them to turn but two of three on the live terminal are jammed solid such that I can't attach cables to them. Even with a well fitting quality screwdriver the screw heads are rounding off without the screws turning. "
