Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's good but! The red indicator light is very poor, just installed in garage and with the lights out there is only a faint glimmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy fix for existing system I have used this to protect an outside cable run which had no protection and was run on the surface in a hedge with ordinary cable (installed by a previous owner) and is now underground and armoured. Two issues (both minor). The cut outs are not that well defined, I finished up drilling them out as I was not confident of breaking them out (20mm cutter). The waterproof seal is fiddly, it keeps falling out of position and combined with a plastic case which can pull out of shape under the stress of an armoured cable it can be a nuisance. Make sure the armoured cable is well aligned and secure It seems to work well when installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the Job My garden has an Irrigation system protected by an RCD. Went on Holiday came back to a desert. There had been a power cut and the old RDC is not "latching". Bought this one and fitted it without any problems. Can't say about reliability yet but so far so good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Switch I bought the switch in store - as usual good service. The instructions with the switch and in fact on it were very clear. It was easy to fit and worked first time as you would expect. Too early to know about the reliability hence the neutral rating.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The BG Storm Weatherproof range of products do not come with glands or gaskets as the cabling/conduit type being used will dictate the appropriate type.
The pre-formed knockouts (push-outs) are 20mm diameter as standard or can be drilled out to 25mm if necessary.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Yes, using a fuse with a rating below 13A is perfectly acceptable as it has no bearing on the operation of the Safety RCD circuitry.
