All I see is a really thick cover plate and an ordinary receptacle. It is not clear how power is brought to this receptacle.

Amazing, isn't it, how web sites that have all the 'bells and whistles' are often short on substance.

Where?

It certainly doesn't appear clear as to whether power enters from above or in back of the assembly. Maybe either can be used?

That's one lousy website, in my opinion. It takes 10 times as long to load as if the data was just presented in a more suitable format just so we can have some silly animated page turning effect.

For some similar under-cupboard/counter receptacles from the U.K., take a look here:

I rather like the idea of making the outlet flush and hiding the box in the cabinet. This just seems like a bulky and obnoxious (and ugly) lump of crap. I don't see the benefits (?).

No offense intended to the submitter (HCE727). I always like to see the new products, even if I don't like them particularly. Keep them coming!

If you dislike the website as much as I do, please make your objections known with an email to their webmaster.

I told them: "Your Flash driven online catalog is the most horrid evil piece of crap that
I have encountered in recent memory. Flash is evil. Make it go away now."
