Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great retrofitting sockets Having moved into a house with a number of single sockets, I've fitted a number of these units in various rooms. Very easy to fit, a simple case of swapping over, less than 5 minutes in most cases to do the whole job. They do protrude from the wall further than normal plugs, but required no work changing over the back box, which was a bonus for me. Have had them in place for 4 months now and no problems with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great way to increas sockets Very simple method of increasing the number of sockets in your home without having to chase out a space for a new backbox. If you're competent to do electrics, then this is a sure fire way of making improvements quick and easily. My only issue is the depth of the plate, which needs to be slightly deeper in order to accommodate the pins on a plug. This one I fitted last night also has fixing screws which are about 5mm shorted than those I removed form the old, single socket. Not a massive issue as I just used the old screws, and it realistically is a problem with the fitting of the old back box being too deep in the wall, but just one to keep an eye out for if you use it. I've given 4 stars for reliability, but I haven't used them for long enough to comment for sure. But I can;t see why they would be any issue at all. These things are brilliant! Maybe Screwfix could start supplying them in a range of colours (brush silver etc) so that I can change out others within the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Brought one a year ago and was easy to fit and used daily without any problems. Certainly the cheapest and easiest solution to change from 1 socket to 2. No instructions provided but explains itself. One tip that is good to know is that to get the screw caps off the front is to poke the screw in from the back to pop them off - I know, common sense but that took the longest for me to do with the whole job of replacing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great retro fit Third one that I have fitted. Removes the need for a bulky double plug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Needed to free up some electrical points in house this seemed the easiest option. Had a few doubts about the item and after reading the reviews decided to purchase a couple of these. Installation was very simple and quick to accomplish, the socket is built well and a good price for what it is. As for the reliability I have only given it 4 stars as only just installed and time will tell how it lasts. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who needs to create an extra plug socket without all the hassle of chiselling out block work etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from converting a socket I was asked if I could change a single socket to a double without damaging the newly wallpapered wall. Was a breeze removing the single socket wiring and connecting to the new converter and not a single mark on the paper job done.
