All sorted cheddarman, thanks for the report

Picked one up last night and there ok, plug can even be removed if you put cable through a wall.

Check the gasket before closing the lid mine came out on the corner so check not to nip closed.

How many Christmas light blocks will it hold

Seems expensive compared to a carrier bag and some gaffer tape... I don't know, all you people who want to do things the proper way?!

Pretty good price, they are usually about £20 -£25. without the timer and RCD.

Looks a bit cheap and nasty tbh!

I'd sooner spend a quid or 2 more and get a proper IP rated outside socket like this one for £12.99

Then do it properly and wire it into a RCD or RCBO at the CCU. However if this is not a viable option then I would make sure it's wired into a re-wirable RCD and not a plug and socket RCD like posted here as that poses a safety issue imho.

This is the type of RCD that should be used if going down that route: (That way it's physically impossible to energise the outside socket without it being RCD protected unless you start re-wiring stuff!)

Agree with the wired RCD option but for the link you offered I think this kit is for transformers for external xmas lighting.

I'm swapping the wall socket to rcd type,
