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

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."

Useful little boxes
13 Aug 2012
By Heatlightandpower
, London
"We use these choc boxes a lot in lighting installations.
They are robust and small enough to get into downlighter holes - useful when you have no access from above. The enclosure is not sectioned, we use WAGO connectors and the box will take up to four of these quite comfortably.
The only real let down is the quality of the screws, which is poor and means that screwing down the cables can be a more time-consuming than it should be. Better screws and the boxes would get 5 stars across the board."

Needs Redesign
4 Mar 2013
By Automation1000
, Burton on Trent
"Just about does the job, but the cable clamps are really difficult to assemble. Took me ages to fit the screws and tighten. it would have been easier if I had had a screwdriver to fit perfectly into the screwheads, but most will probably just have an electricians flat blade. Not particularly cheap for what it is either (a simple moulding and a few cheap screws - probably cost 15p to make). Really fiddly and annoying to use. Surely somebody can design something better than this!"

Plastic box
12 Oct 2012
By Nickwolf
, Huntingdon
"Brought this to connect a wire, thinking that the connecting box bit where you put the wire in and screw them down would be there, but it wasn't, so it was just a plastic box, and not water proof, complete waist of space"
