Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and useless Awful product, flimsy and unreliable. Don't waste your mo ey on these drylining boxes

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful to use. Avoid. I usually use the Appleby ones and had no issues. They were out of stock so I bought these. That will be the last time I do that. Fitted about 20-30 of them and had problems with about half of them. And even the ones that worked perfect are a faff. The blue tabs fall out, or go squint, get stuck. If the wall is anything but a perfect bit of plasterboard your out of luck. Most awkward back boxes I have ever installed. Avoid!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent dry wall box LAP are budget parts, but they punch above their weight. These dry wall boxes do what they say they do. Explicitly that's providing a box for inserting into a drywall. The tabs are adjustable so you could insert them into a double-boarded drywall. Or indeed a wall made not of plasterboard. They are an honest box.

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.

What is the minimum thickness of wall for these boxes? I have 3mm plywood wall

Asked by: Winginit2
Hello Winginit2 3mm ply is very thin to support a dry lining socket with a Box Depth Internal 35 mm, you would need the stud work at least set at 300mm centres with a trimmer top and bottom of the socket. Thank you for using the Screwfix Q&A service

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?

HelloGweavesy77, These would not be suitable for your needs. Thank you for using Q&A
