Great value & good quality
Good value box - the grommets slice easily to any cable size (and can be swapped over if "you" change "your" mind ;-> ) - there's enough room inside to leave a bit of spare cable for "alterations", the lid doesn't take a chisel to remove it but the sticker on the lid is a real pain to remove....please move it to the back!!

Super, smashing, great BUT why do SF stick their non-easy peel labels on he front?? Having to find some white spirit to get the labels off 6 of these before mounting is such a pain... time I'll not get back and so easily avoided - SF Stick your label on the back...

First saw these great junction boxes in Germany and very pleased to see Screwfix stocking them.
The 65mm version has plenty space for 4 cables and a handful of Wago connectors and a generous loop of service margin for whoever comes next.
The grey rubber grommets slice easily to your chosen width and provide a good seal around T&E cable, as well as round. If you change your mind the grommets can be swapped around. The lid makes a firm final seal yet does not require the strength of ten to get it off again.
The plastic body remains pliable even in freezing conditions and easy to screw through and can take a hammer blow without cracking (err... yeah, it was a test or something...).
But why-oh-why did someone decide to stick the barcode sticker on the finished side of the product!!
Presumably this someone lost his wife to the affections of a sparky and this is his unjust and twisted revenge. Most tradesmen would rather dip their own man-bag in a jar of Veet than spend all their waking hours trying to remove welded-on sadistic stickers.
I'm going to ring ahead and ask the nice folk behind the Screwfix counter to remove them from my next batch; so I guess I will have to give them plenty of notice. To easy my withdrawal from the pain I will stab myself with a lunch fork.
3 Stars for value to reflect time wasted.
Great junction box, evil sticker.
