Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only fit exactly as designed The design of this is that the plug screw itself also pulls a tab to secure the box behind the plasterboard. A professional electrician fitted a box like this in my house and the plug snapped. I bought this as a replacement, but on inspecting it the electrician had snapped the tabs off the side and attempted to stick bolts on to the back of it. The plastic is too flimsy for this, and the bolts were too far back and not correctly angled, so when my wife pulled a plug out, the whole front plate of the plug snapped as it was only secured in the middle. In fairness to this item itself it was not the right one to fit due to wooden supports in the plasterboard around the plug area there was not space for the gripping tabs, and I have bought a metal one now to screw into place. If any other quick fix electricians are tempted to snap the tabs please bear in mind this could cause problems like this for the users of the plug later on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job Makes fitting a socket and spur into plasterboard a breeze . Works well, sturdy enough and looks good with the flat plate sockets and no gap in between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innotive back box Wanted to mount power and aerial sockets on the wall in multiple rooms for TV's, whilst going through screw fix for relevant back boxes came across these. Excellent idea saves time cutting holes and trying to make sure there level and again saves time only having to chase wall once instead of twice to multiple individual socket back boxes. Highly Recommend

Dry lining box compatibility

Anyone know if this is compatible with: MK 13A 3-GANG DP SWITCHED PLUG SOCKET WHITE (17315)
Asked by: MMouse
Unfortunately we cannot comment in relation to competitor (MK) products, however this Appleby product is certainly compatible to any Crabtree Socket. Thank you for your interest in Appleby.

Are these compatible with surface mounted trunking?

Asked by: Eddie69
Dry Lining boxes are designed for the purpose of fixing into partitions, cavity wall and plaster board walls. They would not be appropriate for trunking assemblies. Thank you for your interest in our Appleby products.
