" Will always go with mk as they tend to be more built better. Don't shatter when you punch holes in them even when your working in this Baltic weather we are having this January. Bought cheaper before but many others crack or become unsafe to work with so MK all day for me. "

Good boxes
18 Jun 2014
By Rolec
, Romiley,Stockport.
" These are good boxes to use
I use these all the time because they are neat with rounded corners and slightly off white which makes them pleasing to the eye.
They are also fairly strong compared to other makes which soon break.
They also have good knockouts even in the corner of the boxes making them ideal butted up to fixtures with trunking taken off inline making the job very neat.A bit pricy compared to others but the don't disappoint.

good product - rubbish reviews
7 Oct 2013
By stevecat
, London
" I needed this but was slightly put off by the knocking reviews from 3 reviewers. So I got one and I've tested it
Jimbo1 says he had a problem with the inset screw. Off the wall I inserted a 40mm screw and did it right up so it came out the back then took it out - no problem.
Gingert says there are no knockouts - just wrong tho I agree you need to be quite skilful (!) to use them...
HonestOddJob says the box is brittle - not sure what sort of drill bit was used - wood bits would jam and then rotate out with considerable force but a properly designed metal bit should be ok. I carved out the bottom knockouts with wire cutters and pliers and there was no evidence of unusual brittleness.

A poor product/design
14 May 2012
By Jimbo101
, Bristol
" Well the looks are fine and in line with the rest of the MK Logic Plus Range, knockouts OK - BUT - the mounting screws cause the inset nut to strip out of the plastic housing very easily. On other boxes the screws simply pass through the recessed nut, but on this box they meet resistance, one turn further and the nut simply strips from the plastic making it impossible to drive the screw further or remove the screw as the nut has stripped and simply spins in its housing. Either this is very poor design/production quality or you have to use very short mounting screws - 15mm? - but there's nothing to say these are needed. On similar LAP boxes the screws simply pass through no problem and looking at the MK box there’s nothing to suggest the same shouldn’t happen, so sort it out MK! "

Brittle Box
31 Jul 2008
By HonestOddJob
, London
" If you just want a shiney box this will do the job. If you need to drill additional holes or entries in the sides be very very very careful.
The box is unbelievably brittle. As I left the trade centre I immediately returned as I noticed a crack in the housing. With my replacement when attempting to drill the sides (with a new drill bit) the box exploded.
