Guide to Mounting Sockets

Weatherproof Single Socket

  1. Identify a suitable clean, flat, rigid surface.
  2. Remove the two screws from the white socket plate. The socket can then be pulled out a little from the enclosure. If the socket will not pull out far enough, undo the cable gland to allow more flex to be fed in.
  3. Undo the four screws which are now visible, to separate the front and back sections of the grey enclosure.
  4. Four mounting holes are marked on the back of the grey enclosure. At least must be used. The holes are positioned 56mm apart, both horizontally and vertically.
  5. Drill the required mounting holes - the socket must be mounted with the cable gland facing downwards.
  6. Drill a 3mm hole on the bottom edge of the back section of the enclosure, at the location marked 'DRAIN'. Failure to create a drain hole may result in the build up of condensation within the unit.
  7. Screw box to mounting location, with the cable gland facing downwards. Place rubber covers over each mounting screw used.
  8. Screw the grey casing back together. The front casing simply rotates 180 degrees so that the socket is still the correct way up even with the base rotated with the cable gland facing downwards.
  9. Screw the grey enclosure back together with enough torque so that the black gasket bulges slightly out.
  10. Screw the white socket plate back in position.

Weatherproof Double Socket

  1. Identify a suitable clean, flat, rigid surface.
  2. Remove the two screws from the white socket plate. The socket can then be pulled out a little from the enclosure. If the socket will not pull out far enough, undo the cable gland to allow more flex to be fed in.
  3. Undo the four screws which are now visible, to separate the front and back sections of the grey enclosure.
  4. Four mounting holes are marked on the back of the grey enclosure. At least must be used. The holes are positioned 60mm apart vertically and 105mm horizontally.
  5. Drill the required mounting holes - the socket must be mounted with the cable gland facing downwards.
  6. Drill a 3mm hole on the bottom edge of the back section of the enclosure, at the location marked 'DRAIN'. Failure to create a drain hole may result in the build up of condensation within the unit.
  7. Screw box to mounting location, with the cable gland facing downwards. Place rubber covers over each mounting screw used.
  8. Screw the grey casing back together.
  9. Screw the grey enclosure back together with enough torque so that the black gasket bulges slightly out.
  10. Screw the white socket plate back in position.

Splashproof Single Socket

  1. The socket has a single key-hole screw mounting on the back casing.
  2. The socket must not be mounted permanently outside. If mounted temporarily, the flex entry must not point upwards.
  3. Do not unscrew the socket casing. 
  4. Drive a screw with a max mm head into the mounting surface.
  5. Insert screw head into socket screw hole, and slide up into the key-hole slot.

4 Gang Trailing Socket

  1. The socket has two screw key-hole mounting on the base.
  2. Do not unscrew the socket casing. 
  3. Drive two screws with a max mm head into the mounting surface, 180mm apart.
  4. Insert screw heads into socket key-holes and then push the socket down wards so that the screws slide up into the key-hole slots.
