Best Drywall box

" Used these in a partial rewire and they really are the best around. They are sturdy and lock in well. Knock outs are good and both these and the deeper version allow plenty of space for cable. "

Great product!
26 May 2015
By MonkeyDave

" This is a great product.
I was sceptical that it'd be one of those cheap plastic units that you have to be careful with the breakout holes or else you'd crack the whole thing. But not with this. You can be quite rough and it'll still not crack.
Well engineered with snug fitting slotted mountings.
All at a very good price.
Perfect really! "

" The Appleby range of back boxes I have being using for years and find them both reliable and easy to work with. The wings are larger than other variety’s I’ve used and better on dry lining walls. Installation is quick and reliable every time. "

" Knock Outs easy to use without splitting the box, which I've managed on other makes. Goes into the hole in the wall, thin lip make it's easier to smooth over to the existing wall, and clamps well. "
