Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile This back box can be used to convert a single gange socket to a double without drilling fixing holes. Very well designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality pattress box Bought these surface pattress boxes as I wanted to install a couple of additional sockets in my bedrooms and they match the MK sockets I had purchased. They were easy to install and the knock out hole is easily large enough for the cables to go through. As they are from MK they are well made. I am very happy with my purchase and would thoroughly recommend.

What screws should I use when fixing these to block work

Could you tell me which screws are the most appropriate for fixing this box (length, diameter etc) that I should use to fix the box to block work in my garage? A product code would be great.

Is there a 2 gang pattress box that is designed to go directly over a 2 gang flush box?

Asked by: Griff7
I have looked for these in the past when trying to fit something that required a deeper back box than what was in the wall. I couldn’t find anything so I ended up creating my own by modifying a standard surface mount box. First, I carefully drilled straight through the threaded brass bushes and through the back of box with a 4mm drill to allow clearance for the 3.5mm screws. I then cut the back face out of the box using a Dremel (this can be done with a hacksaw by putting the blade through the knockout and then fitting to hacksaw frame). Any sharp edges should be removed with a file or a piece of abrasive paper. Don’t forget to get some extra long 3.5mm screws. I bought the 75mm length as they are much easier to shorten than they are to make longer (Screwfix Cat No: 2792H) By using this method to create your own spacer, you will have a wide choice of depths (>=16mm). You will also have a better chance of being able to find something that best matches the corner profile of your face plate. MK, LAP, BG, Crompton etc. all have slightly different corner profiles!
