Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appleby "the standard" Appleby is the standard to go by in dry liner boxes. Other brands are nowhere near as good. I've fitted hundreds of these and they've always been fine. Other brands no so. The knock outs are easy to remove and simple to fit in to place. Although one thing I didn't quite like is the diagonal raised plastic bit on the rear that makes it a bit annoying to hold flat whilst marking out level. If they kept the rear flat it would help. Not sure why it's there but doesn't detract it's superior to other brands

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality boxes I've always liked Appleby wiring accessories and these are no exception. They grip well when inserted into plasterboard and have several options for cable entry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APPLEBY 1-GANG DRY LINING KNOC A sturdy well made little box, easy to fit, and strong clip type fasteners to lock it into place. And a good price too.

Would this work in a wood frame?

Wanting to replace a socket in motorhome for a USB socket but would need to hold it in place would this work?
Asked by: TheHolyBeever
Hello, to secure a dry lining box you need to fix and secure it to a dry lining wall with the outer lugs, with a thickness of between 6.35 and 15mm. Please note the intended surface for these boxes are plasterboard, hence we cannot say for definite whether the wooden frame would be secure. Thank you for your interest in our appleby brand.

Maximum lug opening?

Would this open wide enough to take 15mm plasterboard plus 10mm tile (plus 3mm adhesive) Or is it best to just fit over plasterboard then tile over the lip?
Asked by: Jimbo1981
We would recommend 6.35 – 15mm and would suggest tile finishing over the lip of the box. We would also suggest you install the box straight into the plasterboard. Thank you for your interest in our appleby brand.

Box is tiled in. How do you replace the brass threaded part or can you replace the yellow plate

Asked by: casio1
Hi Answering my own question after talking to Appleby on friday. Checked clearance behind the box. Having practiced first with a new box. Used a screwdriver to unclip the front of the yellow fixing plate. Eased the yellow part backwards and away from the side of the box and uncliped it. Then reversed the proces to put in the new plate taken from a new box. The yellow plates are the same size so used plates from 3 singles to repair 3 doubles which had the threaded part missing. Thanks to the customer service tech guy at Appleby. PS don't electricute yourself. RPJ

Would this work with flat switch plates or would you see the edge of the box around the edge behind the switch plate?

Asked by: Zorro77
Hi, These dry liners can be used with flat-plate profile switches. Visibility of the edge of the box will depend on the dimensions of the product front plate fitted to the box. Whilst the fitting holes are a standard space, the actual face plate measurements may differ by manufacturer. When viewed from the side, the edge of the box will be seen as the flat-plate sits up against the lip of the box and does not cover it. Use of a flush mounted metal box, available from Screwfix, code 90698 where possible will ensure the plate pulls up to the wall and none of the back box is seen.
