    Gotta fit some outdoor sockets for my lad, I'm paying!

    So which would you fit BG or LAP?

    Or should I not be so much of a tight arse?

    Hager. A couple of quid more than BG but better quality. I used to fit a lot of the BG nexus storm ones as they are cheap, but the catches are stiff as anything and quite snappable.

    Out of those, not Lap :D
    The BG ones are fine for a budget choice. I have a MK masterseal that is doing just fine after 15 years in my garden though.

    BG are fine. i have a BG and a timeguard at home. both RCD sockets. the timeguard one failed RCD test @ x1, to be fair, though it's been in 8 years.

    Have you tried the Click AQUIP range? Very popular with our customers and don't break the bank.

    Yup. what Andy says. If I was doing it and LAP was the only option, I'd try and fashion my own socket out of bark and moss.
