Not really fit for purpose

Only after I had done the full install did I realise you cannot use the rcd without having the door wide open. The rcd should be manufactured 180 deg about to allow it to be used with the door closed.
Easy to fit good quality

Bought to replace existing box that's been outside many years and taken many knocks. Easy to install just the three wires into the plug and two screw into the wall, as I had the existing hole there was no drilling involved. Looks like it will be water resistant. Only downside is the catch is a bit stiff & fiddley to operate and the bracket to secure it to the wall is the most secure. There are knockout holes to fix it flush to he wall which I may use in future.
Flimsy but good price

This is good value for a breaker, cable and socket. However, it's a bit flimsy - the mounting brackets on mine were installed upside down from the factory, meaning I had to dismantle the socket outlet to turn them around. Once fitted to the wall, the design of the brackets means that the socket wobbles around a bit too. Overall it's ok but nothing special.

The product looks good on the face of it. However, after I installed the power point in an outside position, which took some considerable effort, I found that the RCB provided was unreliable, only working every few attempts to set it. I was not about to dismantle the whole thing to return it, so I cut my losses and used a breaker I already had. Buying a breaker, cable and point separately would be a better option than buying this kit.

Good strong enclosure and sturdy hinged cover,much more robust than similar priced items,looks like it will pass the test of time.
