4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, fast dispatch
Good value, quick dispatch. Does the job, but slightly tricky if converting a one gang socket. You have to make a small indentation in the wall to make it fit on the left side and the location of the screws mean that it doesn't sit flush with the wall on the left leaving a couple of mille gap. For converting a double gang you wouldn't have the same problem. Also if you're...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
I'm a Senior CE&I Engineer by trade, and registered MIET, and recognised by the Engineering Council as a proper Engineer. The product shown is a Clipsall S/O, what was received was a very cheap derivative, the socket screw holes didn't line up and as It was for a buy to let renovation, I had to go out and purchase an alternative proper item. This item got binned as I'd...

You have to make a small indentation in the wall to make it fit on the left side and the location of the screws mean that it doesn't sit flush with the wall on the left leaving a couple of mille gap. For converting a double gang you wouldn't have the same problem. Also if you're screwing it to a metal box then you'll need to earth it, the earth wire isn't supplied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Socket Converter, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CONVERTOR SOCKET 1 GANG - 3 GANG 13AMP LG9098/3CON
Bought 2 of these as I needed extra sockets in a newly decorated room!
It's not quite top notch quality but does the job well. I can see what other reviewers meant about trying to fit this to a single. To do it neatly would take some cutting / filing but isn't recommended on an electric socket.
If it's a double socket you're converting and it's not highly visible it's absolutely fine. If it's a single or the unit is quite visible, spend a few pounds more and get a brand.

I'm a Senior CE&I Engineer by trade, and registered MIET, and recognised by the Engineering Council as a proper Engineer. The product shown is a Clipsall S/O, what was received was a very cheap derivative, the socket screw holes didn't line up and as It was for a buy to let renovation, I had to go out and purchase an alternative proper item. This item got binned as I'd removed packaging and tried to install. In my view it was not fit for purpose. Would not use this seller again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does a good job, 15 July 2013

This review is from: CONVERTOR SOCKET 1 GANG - 3 GANG 13AMP LG9098/3CON
The conversion is simple enough, although the need to make a little hole in the wall to accommodate is a touch perverse. I would have thought that by simply making the casing a little deeper would have negated the need to make the hole.

This review is from: CONVERTOR SOCKET 1 GANG - 3 GANG 13AMP LG9098/3CON
Disappointed by this purchase, the listing states that this item can be used to convert a single or double plug to a triple.
It didn't however state that in order to convert from a single, I would have to chisel a hole in my wall to allow the socket to lay flat or I would have been left with a 10mm gap between the socket and the wall.

did not like this at all its very cheap and nasty,
firstly the holes in the socket don't line up then
you have to chip a piece of wall out, this is not
good in fact its in the bin.

A handy product, which saves the hassle of having to cut a cavity for an additional socket. Not difficult to fit.
