What do all you peoples out there think of the Chocbox ?
I for one think they totally ****, the cable entry point is ill-conceived, if you attempt to cut them out the box end splits. If you try to use them, the cable (unless it’s flex) fails to locate properly, and the wings stay open wide enough for a mouse to take up residence. The cable clamp is nigh on impossible to use when standing on a ladder, the screws are to short and don’t locate or start easily enough. I became so incensed the other week I considered sticking my head into the consumer unit :mad:

End of rant. Thanks for listening ..

I think they're ok, did a shop fit out recently where i had to fit 200 or so downlighters, sure is a lot quicker than a standard JB!!
