Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth trying. I bought a pack of 10 only because the usual Appleby brand was out of stock. I wish I hadn't. The tabs fall out too easily and even with LAP sockets it leaves a gap all the way round meaning the socket sits approx 1mm proud of the wall. Even at half the price of Appleby, I definitely would not use them again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from competitively priced……but These are competitively priced compared to the boxes I usually use. The only drawback is that when fitted in the wall the lugs can’t be ‘locked’ in position to retain the box flush for plastering. I solve this by using 3.5mm screws in the lugs to drive the lug to secure it tightly behind the plasterboard.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lugs fall out So upon reading the reviews I purchased this 10pack. I was sadly dissappointed when fitting the boxes into the freshly cut out into the plasterboard (yes the holes were the correct size) I inserted the box pushed the blue lugs out, and they just fall out, I tried with 4 other boxes (thankfully it was a 10 pack and I only needed 4 so had some to spare) After several stressful attempts with total failure on the lugs to do their job, I had to revert to alternative methods to secure these boxes into my now holey walls. A combination of expanding foam and no nails secured them nicely. Screwfix do sell an alternative brand which I have used in the past, which in my opinion are far superior as they don't fall apart, just a shame they don't do a 10 pack.

Mount in plywood

I'd like to mount this box in an 18mm plywood frame. Will these allow an 18mm wall thickness as opposed to standard 12.5mm plasterboard?
