Very easy to fit and firm in position when scews well tightened. It must be noted that it does not fit centrally onto the existing box and therefore its position might not be as you would wish. Plugs do not slide easily into the sockets when in use and i would not fit one of these where frequent changing of the plug in use was required
****Lived up to expectations

This product was just what i was looking for. It took minutes to install and saved having to chase out walls.
****An ideal solution for solid walls
By Jes Scaife on 08th Apr 2013
An ideal solution to the problem of adding extra sockets on a solid brick wall. Doesn't fit centrally on the old socket but can be offset to the right or left. It sits proud of the wall by about 2cm but overall it doesn't look too bulky. To fit flush to the wall a recess needs to be cut in the plaster to accommodate the depth of the third plug fitting.

The socket converter is an ideal solution to providing extra sockets without an adapter, extension lead or replacing the wall box. Very easy to fit although if converting a single socket to a 3-gang a small ident may be required in the wall to allow depth for the end earth pin.
****Does what it says on the box

Very pleased with this product which I used to replace existing 2 gang sockets in my kitchen. It avoided the need to chisel out for a larger box, with the associated risk of damaging the ceramic tiling. On point worth mentioning is that the converter does not fit centrally over the old box, but sits slightly to the left. This did leave me with a rather tight fit against an adjacent fused spur which I had not expected.

The best one I checked out from a long list. If fitted to a 2 gang box it fits flush to wall. If used to turn a 1 gang box into three the holding screws must be in the left 2 holes and a small groove cut in the wall in line with the right hand black lump that protrudes from the back. I used a drill and gently gouged out the groove. The groove doesn't have to be perfect as its covered up. The three sockets have safety hole covers to stop things being poked into the live terminals. and individual switches.
****An excellent and very useful product
By Norman Fostekew on 08th Apr 2013
Very pleased with the socket Converter. I have done enough chasing of the walls in my house. Just wanted to convert a few of my double sockets to 3 gang. I do not need a flush fitting plate and in any case the socket plate does not pertrude from the wall that much and I have almost eliminated the need for unsightly extension leads. I would definately recommend this product .

This is a marvelous product in an age where additional sockets are constantly being required. I agree with a previous review that the sockets don't slide in and out too easily, but it is and easy way of increasing the number of sockets available.
