" These boxes are a pleasure to fit. The side lugs snap into place and you dont end up trying to locate the switch screws without pushing the lugs back .Good value. "

Neat solution in a tight space
27 Oct 2011
By Virgovision
, Clydebank
" The problem was to fit an HDMI socket and a 13 amp fused outlet in a tight space. there was not enough room to use two individual dry lining boxes and a double box would not work as there are only two screw fitting + there is not enough space. This easy to use box satisfies all the requirements. Sturdily made and easy to fit it made a neat solution to my problem and even my wife thought it looked good! "

Great for TV outlets
19 Oct 2011
By John117
, Sussex
" I bought this for a high level wall mounted socket with power on one side and the TV aerial socket on the other. Slightly bigger than the existing double socket dry lining box which I replaced but 2 mins with a sharp knife and it was in place. Ideal for this job and will use again "

Great idea for TV ariel & plug
27 Nov 2009
By Budgieman

" I used one of these when mounting an LCD TV on the wall. One side i used foe the ariel the other for the plug. It saves cutting out 2 holes in the plaster board and is neater and cheaper the 2 single boxes. "

Poor Quality product

" The 2 inner screws get loose when you tighten them, in effect the 2 independent sockets are only securely tightened on the outside only, not the purpose of this product. Stay away from this one.. "

Double socket dry lining box
4 Jul 2011
By DIYperson
, Stoke
" I wanted to fit two brass georgian light switches side by side so I thought this would be ideal.
The hole spacing does not allow more than one fitting to be installed - not sure what type of switches would fit maybe cheaper plastic ones would be OK.
Screwfix should put a description on the part which explains what size of fittings are suitable "
