" I used this gland on the stand alone Photo cell and it works perfectly. The flexible rubber seal combined with the flexible plastic fingers on the end of the gland body gives a perfect seal round the cables when tightened. "

" Good gland. Needs a lot of tightening for very small cable but no problem for 1.5mm and up. Just wish they came in bulk packs of 10+ so one star less for value but other than that all fine. "

Good quality, but
28 Jun 2015
By

" Just be aware that the thread is quite short on the internal section and with a 3mm thick plastic enclosure I only got a few turns with the internal nut. Using 1.5mm armoured and any pressure on the entry point caused one nut to pop off. Had to use another manufacturers gland on a couple of connections which had longer threads. "

too big for many flexes
14 Dec 2013
By

" I used with some 1mm2 3 core rubber flex and this was only just able to satisfactorily seal the cable when fully tightened.
It certainly wouldn't be any good for 0.75mm2 3 core PVC. "
