Good price compared to others.

" After shopping around I found this connector block was best priced at Screwfix.
It's a solid well made product, ideal of you've got meter tails to upgrade to 25mm sq and more than one pair of tails going out.

" A very good product. Gives flexilbility to connections due to loads of spare ways. Using this product surely meets the BS 7671 electrical installations regulations for the right meter tails cable from the electric meter to the consumer unit. "

" As the first reviewer said, it's quite tight with 25 sq mm tails but it worked OK for me (the 35 sq mm ones were out of stock).
I will buy again. "

" it's a connector block, nothing much more to say other than the built in fixing lugs for the screw down top were found to be broken once the poly bag was opened, so a trip back to store is now required "

Brittle, so take it very easy.
28 May 2015
By
, Surrey
" I thought Bakelite was obsolete.
- Well so it may be, but these are moulded out of stuff which is equally as brittle. I had one in my parts kit in the van, I got it out and found it had a broken latch. Chucked that one, bought another. Pushing out a cable break-out, it shattered, leaving me with a second dudd..
Why not use some tougher plastic? This is rubbish.

connector block
13 May 2015
By
, Cheshire
" The plastic case is very fragile; the fixing lugs for the lid were broken. Found the top (rear) terminal difficult to wire, you have to feed the 25mm cable in a straight line as the terminals are very tight fit and if one strand is slightly of centre it would not fit. Have to be very careful when drilling out the holes for the cable to go through as its splinters and crack, very bad quality considering it house the main tails. "

Terminal block
15 Aug 2014
By
, S.W.
" Solid brass terminal strips in thermoplastic housing. Weak point could be plastic hinge at one end of lid instead of set screw as in other end but no probs yet. Not quite as easy to wire as box I am replacing because top plastic housing for top brass terminal is part of the moulding and is not removable so bottom set of cables have to be threaded underneath.

very weak plastic

" when this arrived the plastic casing was broken, and so were the second and third replacements, despite being checked in the warehouse. Eventually asked for a refund, and the call centre service was very good. The plastic is of poor quality and not fit for purpose. "

Not Henley/MK quality
27 May 2015
By
, South Coast
" Casing is extremely brittle and fragile. Tighten fixing screws at your peril.
Cable fixing screws are prone to stripping.
Overall, not a good service block at all. A better bet is to buy a Henley or MK one and leave these on the shelf. "

" The case on these are garbage I was very gently levering against case and it snapped. They chip when you use a sharp drill on the entry points and the lugs to locate the lid snap easy..... "
