    Plug socket which is wired from the back.

    Has anyone heard of something that does what I want?

    I need a plug socket which allows for cables to be connected into the back of it (obviously with a fuse too).

    Something similar to a cooker switch, like below, but it can't be 45 amps as it's to connect a TV who's cables I've hidden behind the wall.

    So I need a cooker switch with a 13A fuse basically.

    Anyone seen anything like what I'm describing?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Have no idea what you're on about :?

    Never seen one but sure they must do something along those lines. However, would be a pain if the fuse went.

    If you don't want the socket then it's called a '13A amp switched fused spur' ....Is that what ur after ? .....looks like this :

    Thanks for your suggestions, but I need a double version of the above.

    With a fused spur on one side, and a normal plug on the other,

    I can't find one anywhere...

    It's a double socket currently, so has the mounting box in place for a double.

    is it a flush mounting box, or external? if external theyre easy enough to change, although can understand a single double would probably look nicer

    Flush.

    I can't believe noone makes one...

    I wonder if you can change the fuse in a 45A cooker switch.

    that doesnt have a switched flex though

    If you have a hardware shop close to you, go down and look in store, you can then handle the cooker socket and see if you can change it. If not, they may be able to help you

    I've been to wilkinsons, homebase and focus already to look.

    Nothing at all.

    I have an aerial socket next to the double socket, so I'm planning on removing that, connect the aerial behind the wall too, and run a spur off the power socket next to it.

    Then use one of the easy to find fused spur switches eg: ]here and run the TV to that.

    Maybe this dual mount? http://cpc.farnell.com/productimages/farnell/thumbnail/PL0997207-40.jpg also in metal and surface mount try the likes of City electrical or Screwfix

    What I think you need is a dual box surface or buried. You can fit a single socket to one side and a switched fused spur to the other, wire to the socket and link to the fused spur. This will take the same space as a twin socket. hope this helps (all elec wholesalers will stock these)

    Edit: oops just beat me Flynn Jack

    A cooker switch wouldn't have a fuse in it would it? It's simply a switch.

    It's the fuse/mcb that would regulate it.

    Finished..Finally.

    Got rid of the aerial socket, and made it into a fused switch spur.

    Just gotta pollyfill the 2 of holes I had to make to route over the wooden studs.

    Looks good otherwise...

    Thanks everyone, rep given accordingly.

    This shows where the studs are, hence why I needed to make the holes.
