How to Install a Pop Up Socket: Milan Range

Due to it’s versatile nature, the Milan can either be hard wired directly to the mains or used as a deluxe extension socket as it’s already fitted with a mains plug – please bear in mind that although the Milan is available as a special order to suit other electrical systems, this particular model is designed for the UK 240v 3-Pin Plug system only.

Important Information:

  • Don’t remove protective film from the cover disc until you are sure you’re planning to keep the unit.
  • Please ensure there is enough space available underneath the unit prior to installation to accommodate the shoulder washer. There must also be enough space for the mains lead (and a data cable on certain models) to run unhindered.
  • The unit is designed around worktop thicknesses of between 20mm and 55mm.
  • When removing the protective film from the chrome top by hand, do not use any sharp instruments or they will scratch / damage the chrome top.

Installation Guide:

Before you start:

Please ensure:

  • You have room on top for a hole size of 124mm (or 101mm if not using the flush fit adaptor)
  • There will be enough space below for the unit to fully retract and for the cables to run unhindered from the base of the unit.
  • The worktop is at least 20mm but no greater than 55mm in thickness
  • There is adequate space available underneath to accommodate the shoulder washer and enable access to tighten / clamp.
