Â by Breq Very good product
I bought two of these weatherproof box kits since we are going to put Christmas lights outdoors for the first time this year, and I wanted to reduce the risks as much as possible (no carrier-bags wrapped round extension leads for me!)
This Masterplug kit stood out above the others because it includes timer, extension, and RCD - all of which I have, but are in use elsewhere. Everything came neatly packaged in the box - useful for storing when not in use. A particularly thoughtful aspect is the self-adhesive Velcro strips so that the 4-gang socket of the extension can be held securely in the box. All the items seem to be of high quality (the RCD is the same as one I already have, and it has given no trouble). The seals around the cable exits are of sturdy silicone rubber and seem to conform tightly to the cable so that water is unlikely to get in. The box lid also fits very well, again with silicone rubber forming a gasket around the joint.
Security is not compromised either - there are tabs through which a padlock can be fitted to reduce the chance of anyone getting in to the connections. It is also possible to mount the box to a wall or board for further security.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase, and would recommend it to anyone wanting a temporary means of protecting outdoor electrics.

Wiring the Christmas tree lights use to be a nightmare but not anymore thanks to this ingenious little distribution board. No more worrying if the rain or snow will get into the cable joints,thanks to an RCD,and a water resistant box which actually houses the Christmas tree lights transformer.The best feature of all is a mechanical timer,so no more going outside at midnight in the freezing cold to switch the lights off.For the price this piece of kit is amazing.

Great kit containing everything that is needed to set up a remote supply for Xmas lights and Xmas garden features. One cable supply means no disconnecting controls in order to push numerous cables through walls. Timer and safety cutout and extension lead included
