Rated 5 out of 5 Dry line box Does the job it is made to do its rigid construction makes the job easier 11 Jan 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value drywall box 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. 27 Sep 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dry liner box - efficient 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. 23 Jul 2015
