Single pole. Should I buy these or pay the extra for double pole?

The LAP sockets are pretty poor, Volex are worth the extra.

I bought some of these. They're OK, not great. Can be a bit fiddly to get plugs in.

Because they're not obsolete. In fact they are currently ubiquitous,

And when they do become obsolete, you can change your sockets in 10 minutes.

a single pole switch/socket only disconnects the Live wire when the switch is in the off position, whereas a double pole switch/socket disconnects the Nuteral and Live when the switch is in the off position.

Single means one of and double mean two of!

Not bad quality for the price usually around £6 each
#19
I bought some of these as we are selling the house and wanting to add some finishing touches. They are a great price however hubby said that they were cheaper in feel than standard B and Q ones and fiddly to fit, but not impossible. However when fitted look great and no different to more expensive counterparts.

a single pole switch/socket only disconnects the Live wire when the switch is in the off position, whereas a double pole switch/socket disconnects the Nuteral and Live when the switch is in the off position.

So from that answer I "presume" switching both the live and neutral off is safer. Therefore in the world of the sparky where regulations are there for our own protection I ask again why are they both available?

Maybe it's for the regulatory body to keep themselves in a job with another set of regulations to come in where single pole are no longer classed as safe enough.

Double is safer that's why.

Scratch and smudge easy too. All in all, look nice, but there are much better quality fixtures avble

I didnt! replaced like for like with same LAP stuff. Purp bought few boxes of spare incase they discontinue them. Issue is i done whole house matching so cant just flip a few to something else. Dimmer switches in this range are just as bad. If i was to bother doing again, would go for the std white jobbies, crabtree. LAP are china made i believe
