Extending a socket using a surface mounted box
I was wondering if anyone can offer advice on this, basically bought a plug, electrical cable and a surface mounted double socket box, I want to wire it up and plug it into a socket. What I want is to bring a powerpoint on the other side of the room without using some kind of 4 way extention but having the box screwed on the plaster board. I don't see the problem with it but I though I'd ask some experts :-) Thanks!

Its basically an extension lead so as long as its assembled correctly and not causing a trip hazard then no issues.
