"If you are a first time user it is not easy to open the box. A simple diagram would help. I like the idea of fixing the cable to the lid as access to make the connections is much easier than if it was inside the box."
"These are simple to use, although oddly the connections and cable clamps are on the lid. When closed the terminal block folds down into the box, or the box folds over the terminals.. Might be better if connectors were included in the box."
"Simple and effective problem solver for joining cables, especially flexible cables such as for downlighters, transformers, fans and similar applications. Terminal block not supplied - but that is no problem since you need to choose the applicable rating and number of poles for your job."
"Good product does what it says, unfortunately I didn't see the part that says "connectors not included" doh! So I ended scratting about looking for some I had in my toolbox. Would be a good idea to have a set of 3 choc connectors already supplied in the box?"
"Good little boxes for protecting wiring joins from prying fingers. I like the addition of the cable grip though I used them on wire in an out of sight location so pulling wasn't an issue in my use. Overall I would recommend these items"
"Useful product to connect two separate cables together, especially when dealing with lighting. Easy (if not a little fiddly) to use, but safe in use.
Would be perfect if the 2 pairs of cable securers were actually attached to the lid of the chocbox rather than as separate items. There is always the chance of dropping the securer or the screws when on a ladder and losing the part. If you can screw down the cable securers from the top of the lid rather than the bottom of the chocbox then this would make the job less fiddly too. Less fiddly saves time, and time saves money!"
"Nice product, easy to fit and holds lighting cables securely. Disappointed that the choc strip connector was not supplied and also the locating pins will only fit larger sizes of choc strip. I tried fitting a 5A strip and it broke the pin off."
"Great for using with chocblock connectors for downlights and around the loft. Helps to ensure conformity with 17th Edition regulations. The clamps are a little difficult to fit and screw home, so I sometimes use a cable tie through the clamp screw holes instead as it is quicker."
