"Bought this so we could have power outside to power a trash compactor, easy enough to install, the extension cable provided in the kit was more than adequate for the job, has survived down pours, over the last few days so is doing its job well with no faults.
"I bought this weatherproof box kit mainly for the Christmas lights, but use it also for other temporary power supplies. The box is well constructed and easy to wall mount. It comes complete with a four gang socket, RCD and 24hr time clock. No longer do I have to start crawling around the loft trying to get connections to the Christmas lights, makes the job so much easier. The waterproof entry points give extra security. Really good product at a sensible price."
"I bought this outside waterproof extension lead so I could plug my outdoor Christmas decorations in. So today I put my decorations up and this waterproof box was brilliant!! So easy to use and within minutes I was sorted. I'm so pleased, my outside lights went up a treat!!!"
"Great item supplied with timer plenty of lead easy to assemble, Christmas lights front of house looking great. As weather has been so bad did wrap up in black plastic for extra protection, recommended to family and friends."
"Everything you need to connect and safely operate your outdoor electical items in one box. The extension lead supplied is sufficient for most needs, especially if you have extrernal sockets. The added bonus of an RCD and Timer just addes to the safety and convenience of using this product.
The only negative is that its not always possible to get 4 outside lights connected. This because there is no standard transformer for christmas lights, and sometimes they are so bulky that they obscure the adjacent sockets, not an issue MasterPlug can be expected to address."
"What a great piece of kit, used mine for outdoor Xmas lights and I'm thinking in buying another 1. The kids wanted lights outside plus an inflatable tree/snowman/Santa so after looking online for the best/safe way to Do it I had to buy this item and is very easy to set up. Do not hesitate in buying this item as it is worth the money..."
"I bought two of these weatherproof box kits since we are going to put Christmas lights outdoors for the first time this year, and I wanted to reduce the risks as much as possible (no carrier-bags wrapped round extension leads for me!)
This Masterplug kit stood out above the others because it includes timer, extension, and RCD - all of which I have, but are in use elsewhere. Everything came neatly packaged in the box - useful for storing when not in use. A particularly thoughtful aspect is the self-adhesive Velcro strips so that the 4-gang socket of the extension can be held securely in the box. All the items seem to be of high quality (the RCD is the same as one I already have, and it has given no trouble). The seals around the cable exits are of sturdy silicone rubber and seem to conform tightly to the cable so that water is unlikely to get in. The box lid also fits very well, again with silicone rubber forming a gasket around the joint.
Security is not compromised either - there are tabs through which a padlock can be fitted to reduce the chance of anyone getting in to the connections. It is also possible to mount the box to a wall or board for further security.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase, and would recommend it to anyone wanting a temporary means of protecting outdoor electrics."
"Wiring the Christmas tree lights use to be a nightmare but not anymore thanks to this ingenious little distribution board. No more worrying if the rain or snow will get into the cable joints,thanks to an RCD,and a water resistant box which actually houses the Christmas tree lights transformer.The best feature of all is a mechanical timer,so no more going outside at midnight in the freezing cold to switch the lights off.For the price this piece of kit is amazing."
"a good allround product I liked the way that the items all came in one parcel makes for easy shopping . the only down side it said on the wiring do not use in damp conditions as this is a outdoor item that seems a little bisarre,"
"Easy to fix to the wall no screws in the box cover so to add further electrical items it it simple just un-clip the the door which can have a padlock fitted to make it safe comes with R.C.D. Brill..."
"This is the perfect product for rigging lights outside safely. Everything's included except an optional padlock should you choose to use one. Complete with velcro patch to attach the connection box inside to stop it moving about. Only £5 more than a standard empty waterproof box."
