Ok so I'm doing a little job for someone, (Just changing some switch/Socket/FCU, fronts) The lady I'm doing it for wanted some Nickel effect sockets, and she was mighty suprised when she saw the price, Even trade prices from wholesalers were a bit steep. But she has her heart set on them, and found some LAP sockets from screwfix
LAP 13A 2-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket Black Nickel | Screwfix.com

Has anyone used these LAP products before? Are they any good? or should I stay clear ?

have a look at TLC their gear is usually ok.
 
I have used the LAP stuff, it's ok. It's also the same stuff that Denmans call their "Designa" range.

Thanks for the replies guys, I'll end up buying some longer screws anyway as the fronts are going on a tiled wall. The customer has already ordered the sockets, But as long as there has been no serious issues with them it'll do for me.

A mate of mine had an issue of not being able to get a plug top into the socket very easily.

Just make it clear that if the customer is specifying and buying the sockets, you will not put any kind of warranty on them other than your workmanship, and if they fail for any reason there will be a callout charge involved.
Always keep a bag of 50mm x 3.5mm screws in your box, along with a non-ratchet crimping tool just for the brass screw-cutting facility. :)
