Eh up lads, does anyone know where i can get some of the old style dry lining boxes that used to have the spring behind the tab? I've got one with a broken tab that's been tiled into a wall and all i want to do is replace the tab with a new one rather than smash the tiles off to replace the whole box. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!! Cheers.

No,but i've had a similar problem before,and I ended up cutting down,(with a grinder)a 16mm single box,so that I was left with the threaded tab and some of the back.I then glued(gripfill)the metal back to the plastic back.
Or you could try with a 3.5 rethreader to make a new thread in the back of box and use a long screw,but the plastic is usually too thin to get a decent thread.You could also try fixing a "mk" 3.5 extention stud(male&female)the same way,with a squirt of gripfill for back up,& come back a few days later when it has gone solid.
