Absolute rubbishI bought this like another reviewer said due the face it was Tower. No matter what I did it splits. Hit a nail into it and it splits. Pre drill a clearance hole and it splits. Tap it to align it and it splits. I cannot believe how unfit for purpose this product is and am shocked that screwfix actually sell it. I am usually very impressed by the gear screwfix sell but I'm gona take the lot back. Save yourself the time, hassle and money. Don't buy this rubbish!

Load of rubbishThis stuff is virtually unfixable!
the edges split easily when trying to fix.
tried pre-drilling holes for nails but it still split!
I've had pop bottles made of better plastic!

Standard Plastic ChannelThere is nothing special about this product and there is nothing wrong with it either.
I can only assume that those who split these are driving honking great nails through the plastic into uneven surfaces..
I usually just use large headed clouts with just the head holding them in place. Screwfix have discontinued capping nails as so few people use them.

Breaks easily when coldI brought a pack of these because of the name (tower) and the price, however I found that the plastic is very brittle when its cold. I installed some after it had been stored a short time in an un-insulated new build in December, and found the nails consistently split and cracked the edge. Its a bit better if you allow them to warm up.
