Rated 5 out of 5Â by booba Good quality
Bought similar boxes from a local well known builders merchant and every one of them broke whilst tightening. No such problem with these from Screwfix, excellent.

I use Appleby boxes whenever I can , great quality, clip out wings and screw threads better quality than other brands. Cheap as chips and no nonsense.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sni9er Beware Plaster & Lath Walls
This is a great product for the price however those considering using this for older Plaster and Lath walls be aware .. you can use this but its no walk in the park
once you've cit your hole you may find the plaster is to thick to "lock off" the plastic tabs that hold it in place
as a work around i had to recess the box into the plaster (with careful Stanley cutting)
once the tabs were locked off that was half the battle done !
be aware though by doing this your increasing the surface depth your gang socket screws will need to be long enough to meet the new deeper holes
this wont be a problem for a standard gang socket with longer screws but fancier face plates (at least the pack i got) all seem to have slightly shorter screws, in my case i had to push the box forwards from behind (with a bit of wood up the wall under the floor board once the screws began to mesh it wass all plain sailing
it was worth it it looks great now haha !
