Rated 2 out of 5Â by DeltaStar Avoid -splash out an extra 50p
Very difficult to use on 4mm^2 3c SWA. The taper on the backnut is too short and too step - it tends to push the armour back out of the gland rather than bite and clamp it.
Splash out the extra bit on the IP66 glands even if for indoor use, they are much better!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by WindyRush Insecure clamping and unsafe
These MAY have worked for some people but, like other reviewers, I found that these glands were apparently good quality but they simply do not grip the armour and, therefore, leave the earth connection unsound, especially if you are using the armour as the CPC. This is dangerous because someone who doesn't realise could easily be making an unsafe connection.
I am actually not sure that there are not some parts missing. Other such glands have a ring, like a plumbing olive, that grips the wire armour within the body. Such an item is not present with these, although the description perhaps implies that there should be. I'm afraid that these will be going back.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by fiddler2 gland not tight
Like another review I could not clamp the armour
shroud tightly.In fact I turned down the clamp
nut in the lathe,Is there supposed to be a
clamp ring or am I missing something?
Still not clamped tightly as much as I would like.
Have I done something wrong.Should I have used 20 S ? Small ? Helping qualified spark,by the way.
