These are simple to use, although oddly the connections and cable clamps are on the lid. When closed the terminal block folds down into the box, or the box folds over the terminals.. Might be better if connectors were included in the box.

does exactly what it says
Simple and effective problem solver for joining cables, especially flexible cables such as for downlighters, transformers, fans and similar applications.
Terminal block not supplied - but that is no problem since you need to choose the applicable rating and number of poles for your job.

Useful product to connect two separate cables together, especially when dealing with lighting.
Easy (if not a little fiddly) to use, but safe in use.
Would be perfect if the 2 pairs of cable securers were actually attached to the lid of the chocbox rather than as separate items. There is always the chance of dropping the securer or the screws when on a ladder and losing the part. If you can screw down the cable securers from the top of the lid rather than the bottom of the chocbox then this would make the job less fiddly too. Less fiddly saves time, and time saves money!

Read the small print
Ok, it is what it is and it does the job but please read the small print which I didn't, despite being called a Chocbox it does NOT include the choc box connector!
I guess nothing wrong with the item itself but quite large if only needed for lighting wire.
Maybe I'm being harsh on it for not reading the small print but I feel the pictures should include one to show exactly what it is that you actually get.
