Another quality Thorn product
25 May 2012

"What to say: it's great. It has everything you'd expect from an IP65 batten, it's quality, and easy to fit. If I ever need another batten, I'd buy another one without any hesitation."

Batten lampholder

"Used this in a shed and found it to be easy to fit and wire up. Mostly plastic built so should be free from corrosion and fairly robust construction. Starrts well even in an outside location."

5" weatherproof batten
22 Oct 2012
By Goldieboldie
, Saltash
"For about £35.00 for a switch start batten this should come with a tube included. This isn't the cheapest around. Can't rate the reliability as only just installed. Easy to put together make sure you push in the tab on the terminal before entering the cable."
