-------------- Review 1 -----------------
I was really surprised that when I pushed in a 12v cigarette style plug it just knocked the back of this right off, along with the terminal. You would think the unit would be a single mold. That cap on the back end just presses on and the slightest pressure makes it pop right off.
I would not describe this in any way as water proof or marine grade. The sensation was like the entire thing fell apart from the slightest touch. On the water is no time to find out there is a huge hole leading to your batteries.
-------------- The above is all true ----------
Normally this would be the end of my 1 star review. To be fair I went back and removed this part and the 2 others I installed to see if they were legit products.
Here is what I can say now after examining all 3 closely.
2 of these units seem to be better than the one that failed. I would have given the working units 5 stars. The offending unit just pops into 2 pieces with little pressure gets 1 star.
They all have good front side rubber seals a common complaint in other marine sockets.
Now I will always be nervous pressing in a socket plug into these. But for now I am going to use the 2 good ones.
Bottom line: insert a socket plug and apply some firm pressure before installing and make sure it is not defective.
Quality appears to be good, and it is waterproof when the lid is closed.
Installation was very easy (you need a bit to make a 1 1/8' hole and that's it, no screws, no other problems, it locks itself in). It looks absolutely fantastic on my Honda reflex scooter, and everybody who saw it sought it was a factory install. Clean, flush, high quality, nice looking item.
Shipping was fast and free (with prime).
Shipping was great. I installed on the fourwheeler. It works great and it looks custom made the way it fits flush on one of the side panels. I got two of these and would diff buy again.
You can still use them, but the waterproofing goes out the window after the cap breaks.
The weak point is in the thin strip that surrounds the threaded base.
