Rated 5 out of 5 by from decent box Nice unit. However Self taping captive screws are included but threads not pre cut. Therefore threads are cut when tightening unit which require allot of torque. Tempted to use cordless but too risky incase the threads strip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal for the job Ideal for what we needed for, strong and multiple exit/entry options

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I know this is only a box, but. Well made and very sturdy, enough knockouts to satisfy most installations and very good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but Tough Bought this to connect some outside fence lights. Basic empty box, sturdy with plenty of space for a socket inside.

Does this box fit over an exsisting outdoor socket?

My outdoor socket had a lid but it's broken off. Can I put this over exsisting socket to keep socket and plugs dry?
Asked by: RogerIW
Hi RogerIW, This is a weatherproof enclosure intended as a junction box or to contain any items which need to be outside but protected from weather, by completely surrounding the connection or item. Where there is an existing socket enclosure it is unlikely that this box will fit over it as the back section would need to be under / behind the existing wall box in order to ensure the box is correctly sealed against fluid once the lid is screwed on.

Front of box

Can you tell me if the front of the box is flat or whether it has a curve as I need to mount something on it
Asked by: Paul118
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The lid of this British General IP55 Enclosure Grey 270 x 180 x 135mm is gently curved (for stability/rigidity) as can be seen best in the second image.

Can this be used outside permanently or be used temporarily outside? Thank you in advance.

Asked by: Kcc1218
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This IP55 Enclosure Grey 270 x 180 x 135mm is suitable for permanent installation outside as long as all knocked-out cable entries are suitably glanded and the cover is fitted correctly.

How to remove the 20mm cut outs / knock outs?

Instructions say to use a 20mm cutter, but I’m not sure what that refers to. I ended up using a Stanley knife, but I’m sure there’s a better way - what’s the right tool for the job?
Asked by: Meurig
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. A 20mm cutter is a drill attachment for cutting 20mm diameter circular holes easily, but your solution of a Stanley knife is equally appropriate where a hole cutter is not available.

Does it come with M20 seals?

If not, which ones should I use?
Asked by: pc10pc
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This IP55 Weatherproof Enclosure does not come with any glands or seals as the appropriate gland or seal will depend on the cable size and type being used.
