LAP 13A 1-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from outdoor socket item well worth the price simple and easy to fit and operate

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly flawed design This product is well made, easy to install and very good value for money. However, there is a slight design flaw in that the socket is offset to the left hand side of the casing but the cable entry for the connected device is central. This can make it awkward to close the lid of the outlet, particularly if the plug has a moulded strain relief or if a particularly large diameter cable is used. Looking at the other, similar products offered this appears to be a common issue with switched weather-proof outlets and I am surprised that none of the manufacturers has thought about this and modified their designs accordingly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Off-set Socket This LAP- 13A 1 Gang Outdoor socket seems very robust and well sealed. I installed it easily enough, but then when I inserted a moulded plug into the socket I found the socket was 'off-set' to the left and the bottom of the moulded plug was fouling on the cable entry point. I forced it closed, but having forgotten to switch the socket on I had to open the securing clips again. This was a real struggle and I thought they would snap off in the process. Why didn't LAP design the socket to be central to the cable entry point ?? Given a 4 star rating as a normal 'wireable' plug will probably fit OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 gang external socket Good quality , secure closing . Can't really comment on reliability yet as I only fitted it yesterday

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Exterior socket I bought three of these sockets for exterior use in and around the garden, I thought they were excellent value until I finished the installation and tried to use them. As with most electrical equipment nowadays, especially for garden use the units have moulded plugs. Unfortunately these sockets are poorly designed due to the fact that the socket hole are not central to the cable outlet and therefore moulded plugs will not fit properly into the unit and it is impossible to close the cover with a plug in position. My only solution was to cut away the plug moulding at the base of the plugs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poorly designed I really should have read the 1 star reviews before purchasing this and the equivalent double socket... Totally misdesigned product - 90% of plugs foul the casing once inserted and do not align with the cable outlet. This means some plugs cannot be inserted at all while those that can prevent the cover to be shut. Also the cover impossibly hard to open. Returning for a refund, unfortunately I noticed these problems after fitting both sockets. What a pain. A socket really has one major purpose: to accept a plug. This item does not meet that criteria.
