Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insertion tool How on earth Maplin can justify charging Ј7.49 for this piece of plastic, I have no idea - didn't even work well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It did the job... sort of I needed this tool in a hurry. Ј7.50 was ridiculous for a moulded piece of plastic. It didn't work well - I had to fiddle quite a bit with it. They do sell another tool at Ј15 - if you're doing more than 1 job I'd recommend that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total Rubbish! Don't waste your time or money on this. Maplin should remover this embarrassingly poor product from its line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money and time Utter rubbish. I bought one; it managed to wire one socket OK, struggled with the second and was totally useless after that. Maplin would be well advised to delete this product from its line. There are better punch down tools available.
