Very good value

"I used these for fitting under cabinet lamps in a kitcehen.
Easy to work with and very good value and an easy and safe way to join lighting cable as well as to feed individuals lamps.

Small Terminals
22 Mar 2011
By NotMyRealName
, Cambridge
"None of mine broke, but there's not as much thread on the screws as it appears, so it's easy to lose them. I had the floor up at the time, so I effectively lost several screws.
The real problem with these is that there's not enough space in the terminals for the cables. Given that lighting circuits often have several cables going in and out of a junction box, this is just poor design."

Difficult to fit

By oldfriend

"Several of these were broken on arrival. The others are fiddly to fit due to the size of the terminals.
Cheap so they are OK."

Dreadful
9 Dec 2011
By custard
, Midlands
"Maybe cheap, but also feel it.
Not enough space for wires in terminals; thread not good enough to get tight connections; if over tightened will shatter; need to use 3mm terminal driver,can't get enough torque to tighten.
Screwfix sort it out, get new manufacturers ASAP.

Worst JB ever
28 Sep 2011
By smooothhennimal
, Bournemouth
"Cheap and nasty, avoid like the plague!!!
Lugs don't tighten very well and if they do they will crack under any slight force from the screwdriver.
If you only want to do the job first time buy something else.

By Bobthebuildersmate

"I had some of these delivered. 2 came in pieces, the rest had bits broken off them. This illustrates how robust they are. I'm not convinced I could have got any more than 1 cable in them without snapping something. They went in the bin."

Very Poor Joint Boxes
20 May 2011
By IOMSparky
, Isle of Man
"I bought 30 of these for a lighting installation. Unless you want them to terminate a single cable they are virtually useless.
No good for jointing 2 pieces of 1.5mm T&E cable and far too fiddly to use with 1mm.
Don't even think about trying to use them for loop in loop out downlights etc. Probably OK for use with small guage flex."

"These boxes are really rubbish.
When trying to tighten the screws down on more than two cores the posts open up hence will not enable screw to be tight.
Binned all I bought."

Very Poor Product
17 Oct 2010
By DIYerDave
, Carshalton, Surrey
"The old junction boxes were able to fix 4 wires in but these can only hold 2. A Junction Box by definition is supposed to be able to hold 3 cables so I would be inclined to state these break the trade description act.
Don't buy this useless product."

"These are at best poor! out of 6 that i got for a job, 1 was satisfactory, the others i ended up snaping off, what was left of the so called terminals, and using the casing to house a chock-block."

Nasty rubbish
25 Aug 2010
By Grubercheck
, Cambridge
"The old 5A junction box - 18802 was obvious quality and easy to use. Why replace it with obvious trash? Cannot even get 2 wires in, so why call it a junction box? Grub screws have badly machined quirks - so cannot screw down - lead end has too much thread removed.
I had to replace this with the 30A 3 terminal to do the job. Please, Screwfix, remove this item from your range and get a decent one - you have a reputation to keep!!!

"Can only agree with previous reviews - dont waste your time an money on these. Installed three of them and all of them will have to be replaced because of the thread being stripped on at least one terminal."

By mktdeeping

"Although this is supposed to be a 5A junction box the terminals are very small. Difficult to get wires in terminals and the screws are tiny. Easy to cross thread or strip the screws. Nothing like the original Brown 5A junction boxes.
I wont be buying these again"

"This item was absolutely no good. It states it has a capacity for 3 off 1.5mm wires. You are lucky to get two wires into the rather small screw clamps."
