That’s the ones. Was a nightmare trying to get them in, then when a did get them in. They were sitting rubbish and forcing the board not to sit over the mcbs
They are for whatever insane French design logic very fiddly to fit with the busbar in place but should sit neatly, one of the main reasons I go out of my way for hagar is they're one of the only manufacturers of consumer units that fit together properly and straight!

Or get some mk blanks instead they fit anything easily. Probably the only decent component they make.

They are fiddly to fit the old style are better for consumer units. The new ones, the end one always seems too wide or won't sit straight.
Had to take the bus bar out to get

Any of yous had trouble getting the Hager blanks into a dual RCD consumer unit? Couldn’t get them to sit in properly
Yes, they gave me some trouble when I did one last year. Wasn't entirely clear which way up they should go and even then weren't anywhere near as secure as they should be until the front was on....

Still better than the twist in metal blanks that always fall out the second you take the lid off a unit, however careful you are!

I think there is a little connecting bit at the bottom that I think is there for shipping or production, if you cut it then it releases the bottom and allows it a small but of movement which you can then clip in the top and press on the bottom spreading the back connector where you cut which then allows you to clip into the busbar.

Sorry not explained it the best.

I know exactly the bit you mean - I broke it on the first one while trying to fit it and had not idea if I was meant to or not....
