"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."

My First Christmas Present
10 Nov 2014
By
, Chatham
"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."

Outdoor Christmas light heaven

"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.

Big Watertight Box

"came with timer and rcd socket, which was a bonus, also long 4 way extension
what more could you want? it has been fitted and working for 3-4 weeks, and no problems
considering the weather, that is a good thing
altogether, I am more than happy with with it, and would recommend it if you need one

"Waited ages for this item to come back into stock,but it was worth the wait as the product is very good value for money.You can buy the same box elsewhere with 2 metres extra cable but no rcd or timer. The unit costs less than some single weatherproof plug sockets,and is much more versatile as you can set up timers and house outside transformers ect. I bought two of these and have now found use for a third."

"For the price paid this box is ideal for the installation of outside temp lights ie christmas, birthdays, parties. The timer and trip are particularly useful and a realy useful safty feature. A well thought out and useful kit for the price. Just going to buy another for the front garden now."
