Q. If the socket is fixed to a metal chassis, are the power connections to the socket electrically insulated from the chassis?
A. Hi Bill, thanks for your question. The negative would be connected to chassis. It is isolated when the plug is removed, and not isolated when a plug is inserted.

I bought two of these for use in a electronics project. These are very good quality, well designed. Don't think that because they are cheap they will fall apart when soldered to or similar, they are cheap, simple and effective.
I would definitely recommend over any other panel mount socket as they are easy to mount - only requires a hole to be drilled, as opposed to some kind of square hole, no screws that require a backing if for a metal enclosure, or that could accidentally split plastic - just one nut, and it looks a lot better than the plastic ones.
