    Back box spacers or links

    I know I’ve seen them before…. But I can’t think of a name. I’m needing a line of metal back boxes in a kitchen… 2 lots of 2x 2 gang and a 1 gang. I just want them to look evenly spaced.

    UK Fuse link

    Hi folks, Can anyone tell me more about a fuse link (I came across several in a communal cupboard today) . Was not expecting this and immediate thought was Bodget and Scarper had been here. Best described as a brass link similar to a piece of galv pipe inserted in place of a BS88..hence my concern!

While installing the Ryefield boards in the risers to feed the flats in a tower block (40 floors), we were told to remove the PME links from within the boards.
