    Anyone know of a bathroom suitable shaver socket that doesn't require an earth? I know the safety transformer load side doesn't need earthing, but all the ones I've come across, even the plastic ones, still have an earthing terminal presumably to earth the supply side (metal components within the switch?). And the earthing terminals don't look like one of those 'dummy' earth terminals that's just for keeping the earth tidy (plus they're not marked as class II).
    Got a house with those wonderful lighting circuits wired in twin with no earth :-S

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Could you feed it from a fused spur instead? You'd also need RCD protection, if it's not already protected.

    You are not going to find a double insulated shaver socket. You have the choice of rewiring the circuit or as previous post said resupply from a known, rcd protected earthed circuit giving suitable circuit protection as necessary.

    I had something similar recently with a bathroom refurbishment, who wanted down lights, illuminated vanity mirror. At quotation stage I identified like of cpc for lighting, to client. In fact the whole installation was asking for a rewire, which I told the client I couldn't take on, being a billy no mates. He declined my referral to some colleagues, couldn't afford it? Went ahead with his refurb', 'monsoon' shower, tiled walls & floors, and I fitted a Class II bathroom light.:rolleyes:
