Don't you need to already have an outdoor socket to plug these into? and they have a cover on them which means you wouldn't be able to plug these in.

Looks like they are 13A plugs so my guess is you need outdoor sockets to accept them...

They look a bit dangerous to me, how are you supposed to stick a plug in and use them and still be 'Splashproof' ?
that surely only applies when the cover is covering the contacts? Bit of a 'chocolate fireguard' solution if you ask me!

You'd need a bit more than 'splashproof' I'm afraid, Why risk your life.

And for that reason I'm voting cold.

Personally I'd get a set and plug them into a garage socket and then run a wire from that to an outside electrical item....

Without knowing what the Ingress Protection(IP) rating was, I'd avoid using these.

If you really need to mix outdoors with Electricity, go for the best, MK.
Remember to check that you have have looked at this as well.

I can't see that this could be kept outside, as it wouldn't fit inside the type of waterproof socket that you can leave a plug in when it rains.

I'd assume this is supposed to be used somewhere dry, such as a shed and the cover is only supposed to protect from dust and the the most minor of accidental splashes.

Still, its a reasonable price for a remote control socket if you can detach the flap.

If you zoom in you can see what appears to be a 3 pin plug at the back, this suggests that they are just plug in units

I see no rubber seals or drip recess either, this looks positively dangerous to pass them off to Joe Public as outdoor units,
what if grandma buys them?
