Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value This product was a Great price and is a really substantial product ideal for my garden lights that have treats former plugs on that are to deep for normal garden sockets. I will be buying more for my fish pond pumps etc

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fine for the purpose The product is exactly as described, and provides a weatherproof housing for a fair price. Didn't find any issues with the fixings, or the sturdiness of the box, the quality of the product was fine. You do need to drill the cable holes and use grommets, which could be mentioned within the product details as not everyone will have them to hand. All in all, this product is fit for the purpose so would recommend unless you need something that is likely to get impacted and knocked about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Box Used for temporary external power, just big enough to house a 4 way extension lead for Xmas lights, a bit tight for larger/taller plug tops with transformers. Comes with 20mm Knockouts for glands. Overall a good IP box for outdoor use - splash proof. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent enclosure Well made and easy to install. Used to replace a gate box enclosure that was allowing moisture ingress. Wait and see how well it fairs. Interesting to see it uses the accuracy of the moulding rather than a rubberised gasket to seal the door.

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.
