Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product If the specs of this product are read and understood it is a brilliant gland. I use it as an entry point to a LFP04 battery cabinet where there is a 25mm2 pos, 25mm2 neg and a CAN BMS cable passing through it. Highly recommended. Got a couple more in my on grid and off grid CCUs as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fit at 25mm If you use 25mm cable and a 16mm earth this will be a tight fit. Very fiddly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Misleading Pointless buying this gland as it doesn't fit the BG units that Screwfix sell. It's a 40mm gland and all the BG units need a 32mm

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tails gland Good quality and reasonable price Would definitely buy again

Why is BG tail gland sized at 40mm when knock outs on BG consumer units are 32mm?

Asked by: Sparkyfromsparktown
Hi Sparkyfromsparktown, This range of glands is for general domestic and commercial use so includes more options than would directly be applicable to our boards. There _is_ a version with a reducer ring to allow it to be installed in one of our 32mm knockouts though:- British General Plastic Cable Gland Kit with KEM Adaptor 40mm (5295P).

What size meter tails?

Hi, is this consumer gland for 25mm tails and 16mm earth or 16mm tails and 10mm earth? Thanks
Asked by: Deano1874
Hi Deano1874, This is our CPRGPT40 PLASTIC TAILS GLAND KIT. 2x 25, 1x 16mm. GREY FINISH, so it will accept 25mm² Live and Neutral tails and a 16mm² Earth. Just to be clear, this compression gland has one insert with 3 holes in it, not multiple inserts.

Is this meant to fit all current domestic BG consumer units?

I bought this along with a BG 6 way CU and found its to large for the knock outs.
Asked by: magx4
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General Grey Plastic Tails Kit with Multiple Inserts is the 40mm diameter version for use with 40mm holes, there is also a version which includes a reducer adaptor to allow this to fit a 32mm hole (the largest pre-formed hole on any BG enclosure) available as Screwfix code 5295P.

No! What size is the hole /cut out required for this gland

Asked by: jg61
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General Grey Plastic Tails Kit is described in the specs as having a 40mm thread size, so a 40mm diameter hole will be necessary.
