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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Good quality and well priced. I always use one if space allows, and if not a Wiska tail entry gland. Needs a 40mm (all glands of this type do) as stated in other reviews which the Armeg Acceler does really easily but Screwfix don't stock the 40mm yet unfortunately!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compatible with BG CSUs These are perfectly good 25mm tail glands in themselves, but no good for BG brand consumer units as they require 40mm knockout and BG units only have 20mm and 32mm knockouts. Makes no sense!

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.
