How to fit & replace electric sockets

How to fit & replace electric sockets

Sockets can be surface or flush-mounted. It's easier to surface-mount electrical fittings, but the flush-mounted versions look better and are less prone to accidental damage.

Before adding a socket to your electric circuit, you must ensure that it will be compliant with IEE electrical regulations, and establish whether the circuit will require RCD protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sockets Not quite sure what sockets the negative reviewers below were fitting but I found these to be good. I have fitted many different makes of sockets and normally go for MK. Was nervous at first of fitting these given the reviews but as long as you dont overtighten the screws the faceplates fit well and look very good B&Q dont stock the full range but what they do stock is significantly cheaper than many online retailers and being a proper make (Varilight) you can easily match other items you need that they dont stock. Would definitely recommend these

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good clipping system The clipping system on the colours range is far superior their worth the extra cost

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap and flimsey. I bought these as they look similar to my original Crabtree 'screwless' sockets. However they are very cheap and flimsey in comparison, they look okay if your wall is flat and the back box is fitted nice and square as there is little scope for leveling on the fixings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Cheep and nasty. These really should not be on sale. Tiny plastic clips are not fit for purpose to hold face plate in place. No chance if not mounting to a surface that is ABSOLUTELY flat (e.g. over tiles)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor item First the name is wrong. They are not screwless, they are actually hidden. Second, the plate is a poor fit. Unless the wall is perfectly flat, and I mean perfectly, the backplate will flex and distort so that the cover plate will not fit. Lastly, do not trust the website. When it says there are 14 in stock, what it really means is there might be some in stock, but B&Q are buggered if they know where they are. This is not the first time I have had this problem with B&Q.
