" Not much to say about these Appleby boxes but I'm very pleased with their performance.
Knockouts work well.
Box is sturdy.
And at the price, what's not to like?

" These seem fine to me. Some people commenting that they have bent metal earth terminals - the ones I got are Appleby and have brass terminals. Perhaps the design has changed? As ever wonderful service from SFix! "

Ridiculously good value
14 Apr 2013
By Stephen53
, Midlands
" Very cheap, so I expected these to be very basic, with sharp edges, poor screw threads and not much strength. None of this was true. They have all the entry points you could need and break out easily. They were out on a counter in the shop, so there's little point paying more or spending longer on the purchase than you need. Do make sure you have grommets to use with them, though. "

Nice and solid
20 Dec 2012
By Itchy

" All in the title.... nice and solid back boxes.
Easy knock-outs for cable entries and 20mm grommet placements.
No sharp edges, and no distortion experienced when removing the knock-outs.
Good adjustment for levelling faceplate's.
Very good value for money. "

" I read somewhere that the holes were difficult to knock out... This is not the case a sharp crisp blow with a metal hammer worked 1st time everytime for me. They are solid enough for the job. Would recommend to others. Single and doubles are both as good. "

Knock-out boxes
9 Jul 2008
By Kinetonbutcher
, Warwick
" Rewiring my loft, I bought several packs of these boxes. Whilst I found them easy to use etc., they have one draw-back: the knock-out parts can be very difficult to remove. In some cases the disks are so well connected to the box that the case bends before the disks pop out. "

Poor quality
26 Jul 2009
By TimSoutherwood
, Kent
" It never occurred to me to perform a "quality inspection" on such a basic item.
But after an assistant had fitted several, I noticed the extremely poor construction - in particular, the earth point is a screw mounted in a bit of bent metal, not the usual brass terminal. This I consider unfit for purpose.
The sliding accessory mounting lug is flimsy too.
These are going in the skip where they belong. "
