Terminal box
18 Dec 2014
By alsho
, Stockport
" 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. "

does exactly what it says
15 Dec 2014
By kernowfixit
, cornwall
" 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.

" Those things are always handy to have, easy to fit. Includes all screws and clips to fix the cable inside but you need to buy a terminal block separately. "

Chocbox
16 May 2014
By Dairy
, Nottinghamshire
" 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 enclosure
12 Jan 2014
By Ocean
, South Yorkshire
" Used for a downlight circuit for jointing the supply/feed for each downlight and mounted to ceiling joists. Cable grip at each entry is fine for 1mm but I wouldn't expect them to go above 1.5mm.
The cut-out part at each end is a bit messy to trim. The plastic is a little flimsy to cut smoothly.
Does exactly what I wanted it to do though at a good price. "

Good little boxes
11 Oct 2012
By Steve1963
, Milton Keynes
" 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

" Easy to use and everything is there in one place.
Cheap and cheerful. Have a few lying around in case you need them in a hurry. Won't break the bank.

ChocBox
13 Dec 2014
By BrightSparksUK
, NEW MALDEN
" 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. "

Handy enclosure
13 Mar 2014
By DomesticElectrician
, Merthyr Tydfil
" 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.

No terminals supplied!!!
21 Feb 2014
By Rob4
, London
" It is a reasonable quality empty plastic box!
The pictures are very misleading as all you get is the box.
If you need the connector block you must order this separately.
To be fair it says this in the small print but it is very annoying to return to work with a bag of connectors only to find empty plastic boxes.
Perhaps Screwfix should change the picure to show what the product actually consists of. "
