Something for nothing (Almost)
8 Jan 2015
By HarryPeter

" I needed an outside weatherproof socket case and I thought that I would have to buy a large weatherproof socket box, but no! I found this case in one of their flyers from in the Middleton branch. Top notch price and weather socket case. Only down side was it was the last one in stock and apparently they are not going to stock anymore (pity) I was going to buy a total of three, two for my stock especially at this price of £2.99 each
PS The staff at the Middleton branch are superb.

" Bargain priced socket ideal for adaptor type plugs, good quality, easy to install and use, new so can't really comment on durability, purchased another for the rear of my garage to use with the mower etc. "

Nicely designed and made.
28 Apr 2014

" This socket was bought for connecting an electric car to the mains. I had previously bought a switched socket with an offset socket but the car's plug wouldn't fit because they fit a bigger 13Amp plug than usual and the cable is so fat it stopped the plug fitting.
This socket is bigger, and the (centrally-aligned) socket can be repositioned inside at one of three heights. There are nice capping plugs for the fixing screws and the whole thing looks and feels top-notch.
The only drawback is that the electric car's fat cable prevents me fully closing the lid when it's plugged in. So much for weather-proofing!

best value I could find

" I was so happy with the first one I went back and bought another one.
Good idea to alter the socket height. Saved me some work.
Only down side is the cover is very shallow so anything more than a usual plug will be neigh on impossible to get a tight seal.
