Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good outdoor plug This is definitely not a cheap rubbish outdoor plug. Especially useful is the cable feed at the bottom which allows you to close the lid after fitting a plug, therefore maintaining the IP rating; something many cheap alternatives don't allow you to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks OK, easy to install, great value Bought to install outside front to door in a reasonably sheltered location, have to agree with other reviews regarding the IP rating though - IP 66 shouldn't have fixings through the back of the enclosure, and not sure about the push out covers for the cable entry holes (going to "over seal" mine with LM silicon seal) Lid clips easy enough to operate if you press down slightly on the cover to release the pressure from the seal. Can't comment on the long term use though as only installed for a few days, but I suspect it will be fine for occasional use that I have planned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability Great product I've had one in the garden for over two years without any issues. TIP; don't drill a hole in the casing as the manufacturer suggests it lets moisture in and will trip an RCD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Budget priced external socket For the price it’s good. There are better on the market but st a much higher price. The door is a little fiddly to open and shut but nothing an adult couldn’t do...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I purchased this item 2 days ago to replace a similar unit that broke. Take care if you are fitting this as an outside unit as it does not have a built in RCD (automatic cut out if the applause you are using shorts to earth or you cut the supply cable. you need to ensure the supply that feeds this unit has electrical protection fitted (this is now required as standard for all ground floor sockets and outside lights. and if you are on the first floor and hang power leads out of the window. TAKE ADVICE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good speedy service and a good price This item arrived promptly and I am happy with the fitting instructions and expect many years use from the socket. I am a little disappointed that the moulded on plugs, that are so common these days, are a little awkward to use in the socket as the cable has to be bent slightly as it leaves the plug to go through the opening for it in the case of the socket housing. The moulded on plugs I have do work with the socket but require care to avoid damaging either the power cable or the case of the socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and durable I've used this fitting previously so when another was needed I simply bought another one! Easy to install, robust and I know from previous experience it has no issues with outdoor use. Recommended.
