From the appearance point of view, the appearance is smooth and smooth, no bubbles, no scratches, no stains, uniform color, texture, and generally good products; products that are not too lubricated but have a thin and brittle feel to the touch, various properties It cannot be trusted. The socket of the socket must be equipped with a maintenance door, and the plug should be inserted and removed with a certain force and cannot be penetrated by one foot. To check the tightness of the socket clip, smooth insertion force is a key safety factor. In addition, the brand logo on the panel should be clear and full. The appearance must not have any burrs.
2, weigh the amount
When buying sockets, you should measure the weight of a single socket. Because only the copper inside the socket is thick, the weight of a single socket will be heavy, and the copper inside is the key part of the socket, if it is alloy or thin copper, it will not have the same weight and quality. High-quality products will not feel light and light because of the extensive use of copper.

At the same time, pay attention to choosing sockets that match the extra current, plug standards and junction box standards of household appliances. Do not use the so-called multi-function socket, the correct way should be what kind of plug to match what kind of socket. The standard, model, wiring and equipment of the power socket should meet the standard and planning requirements. When plugging in a power source with a risk of electric shock, a switch socket that can disconnect the power source should be used. Oil-proof and moisture-proof sealed sockets for kitchen and bathroom equipment.
