" Covers large cable access holes really well, if you don't fancy mounting them with huge dollops of adhesive you can affix with screws and rawlplugs in the four corners making them easily removable if you wish to run more cabling in the future. "

Couldn't be better

" What could be easier, look at Screwfix website, choose the product, reserve and pay and pick it up almost immediately!
Product perfect for the need we have which is to cover our external lighting wire. Looks good, good price although I only needed one, protects the wire well - what more can you want?
If there was any downside it is that we had to make a plate to glue to the wall to keep the protector in place. We could have screwed it to the wall I guess, but rather than put holes in, we glued a plate inside and then glued that to the wall. But, that was not an issue.

Bigger than it looks!
5 Sep 2011
By
, Leeds
" Very handy and useful but beware that the "nose" part is much more prominent than expected (protrudes about 30mm). The picture and screwfix's rather inadequate description, (it is actually 100mm x100mm), makes the item appear much smaller and less obtrusive than it is in real life. I bought them to create a neat egress for a CCTV cable. I ended up using silicone sealent to block the hole instead of using this item because it was much too big for the job. Would be ideal and less "overkill" for bigger cables such as co-axial. Good value though at just over £1 an item. "

Usable, but that's about it
15 Apr 2016
By
, Cambridge
" 1. Color is too red for most tiles. It will stick out as a sore thumb on most brick types.
2. Very flimsy - if the cable is armored, stiff or if there are multiple cables it stands no chance to hold it in place
3. Purely decorative and with little or no protection value.

Poor quality - avoid
11 Oct 2015
By
, Worcestershire
" Despite being a simple and potentially effective design, the makers haven't managed to make the back plate flat - the edges curve away from the wall. This means that even with premium grade grab adhesive they won't stay flush and pull away, even if you try holding in place for a few minutes.
How difficult is it to make something like this properly? "

" These covers were so warped that I'd have needed a large amount of filler for them to fit against a flat wall.
