2 Gang Back Box Protector Pack of 50 4.8 5 4 4
Handy Used these while I cemented back boxes in a floor. Better for end of first fix. Probably won't stay in which say a 4gang 2 way switch as it's held in place by friction an wires may push it free. Need a trusted plasterer though as many will skim over and walk away 3 Jun 2015
An absolute must! As my title here suggests, these temporary box covers are an absolute must and I don't know how we managed without them. Even the spreads like them as they do not have to at least 'try' to be careful as they trowel over the boxes. These definitely get a 'thumbs-up' from me! 15 May 2015
I would make one small change Great idea work fairly well, I would make one change to them and that would be to make the flaps longer so that the box sticks out from the wall a bit further, also you do need to strip the sheath on the cable first as the cable tends to push the box out, so the longer flaps would stop this! If you've ever had to find a socket box and chip away at it after an over zealous plasterer has been at it you'll love these. 20 Jan 2015
Blank-it I have recently used these blank-it protectors on a new build and have found them to work extremely well. These cardboard protectors fit well and withstand the process of plastering, leaving the enclosure clean and ready for second fix. I stripped the cables during first fix making second fix easier and no plaster was left on the cable or in the screw holes! 18 Oct 2014
