A power socket is a basic element in every household and is offered in different mounting types. The most common mounting types are wall mounting, flush mounting and surface mounting. With wall mounting, the socket is fixed directly to the wall. Flush mounting is ideal for a clean and inconspicuous installation because the socket is recessed into the wall. Surface mounting, on the other hand, is attached to the wall and is particularly suitable for quick installation without major changes to the wall.

Socket outlets come in different designs and with different connections to meet the different needs of consumers. Most sockets have two or three slots, with each slot usually equipped with a round plug. However, some sockets also have USB connections or special connections for special devices such as smart home devices. The choice of the right socket therefore depends on which devices are to be connected.
