"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!"
