" Thinner lip on this product compared with many others to make sure switch, socket etc. does not protrude excessively. Makes for neater installation. "

" This deeper box gives more room for multiple or thicker conductors and the engagement with the plasterboard or other panel is quick and reliable. Knock outs easy to use without splitting the box. Overall a fine product. "

" Superior locking tabs outperform the more expensive chain store versions and the box can be hacked about to get larger cable in without losing the structural rigidity.Highly recommended. "

" I recently bought my first house with plasterboard walls and needed to fill a hole cut into the wall by the previous owner to pass through an aerial cable. I bought this box and fitted it, then covered it with an modular aerial plate. The box was so easy to fit and works fantastically. I was amazed how easy it was. "

Good value drywall box
27 Sep 2015
By
, Weymouth
" I have used several of these boxes, both single and double. They lock into the wall very securely and cutting out the cable entry hole(s) is much easier than on some other boxes.
Unlike box types that have spring loaded retaining clips, if the screws for the electrical plate are too long no damage to the box will result... the screws simply project out behind the box.
The downside of this type of retaining clip is that it can be a fiddly to lock them in place.
They worked well on 12mm plasterboard with a thin skim of plaster but anything thicker and you will probably need to modify them with a Stanley knife... Just cut back the plastic latch to suit the material thickness. "

Dry liner box - efficient
23 Jul 2015
By
, North East
" Works well,
good price,
main advantage is that the side screw clips have a plastic retaining edge which retains the screw hole at the front of the box.
Other boxes look the same - but the screw holes slip back into the box and you spend ages trying to get them forward. "

" Excellent fit with very easy to use yellow fixing wings which bring the box right up to the plasterboard.
I always purchase deep boxes to allow for easier fitting of surface plates and twin and earth 2.5mm wiring.
i have tried other boxes (eg with poor blue loose wings) and they are a pain to try and fit and hold in place.
Screwfix discount trade price is very good and they have single 1g, double 2g and twin boxes.

" It's a plastic drywall box. If you cut the hole the right size, it fits!
Have only first fixed so far so can't really comment on reliability but there's not too much that can go wrong, is there?! "
