Hello all..

Just wanted to let you know about a bargain!

I wouldn't usually buy from e-bay, but you cant really go wrong with a metal back box. 100 Flush Single Metal Back Boxes 16mm 25mm 35mm 47mm 1 Gang Electrical Pattress - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/100-Flush-Single-Metal-Back-Boxes-16mm-25mm-35mm-47mm-1-Gang-Electrical-Pattress/281062895771?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=580178846308&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I ordered 100 x 16mm metal back boxes for £5.99. They have just arrived and they even have the oval grommet fitted to each of them.

I realise we don't use them that much but I expect I'll still get through them before I retire :).

6p each... surely no one can beat that!

The only bit I would be concerned about is the quality of the fixing lugs and the CPC connection. Don't go in heavy handed an I'm sure they will be fine.

You're right though. Often amazes me how little a product must cost to produce, advertise, deliver etc etc and still make a profit on 6 pence an item.
 
These companies work on massive volume , probably only making 1p profit per unit

But if you are selling 100,000 units per day it soon adds up

Looks like a misprint they haven't spotted yet, or they are getting rid of stock at a loss.

I thought perhaps it was a mistake as the price jumps up when they go to a 25mm box, so it's just the 16mm that are cheap.

Good for us though! :)

Does anyone still use 16mm unless they really have to? Minimum I tend to put in is 25mm for switches.

I purchased a load of MI saddles and P clips recently where it was clear there was a mistake with the pricing, saved a fortune. The price went up after the order was delivered...

Must be a misprint, that price includes £1.00 vat too
