A few months ago Johnward did a youtube video of the fake chinese wagos, some were straight through ones of dubious quality.
Well it seems Inline (usually decent company) are now making 32 amp rated 3 pole straight through connectors, sold in toolstation. actually look alright and would certainly be useful and save using 3 separate connectors in a tight space. Still surprised wago have not made these themselves.
Can see lots of uses for these from extending cables on a fuse board change or just for linking out two cables.
anybody bought any yet? if so whats the quality like?

I'm not aware of the company in line ? I think that's just a description of the product and these are just unbranded Wago copies ?

Inline is a brand by Ideal Industries who make the orange splice connectors and wago style push in connectors too. think they might be american?

I think Ideal make those little push connectors that save your bacon when space is tight and the wires, usually at an extractor fan, are short. They seem ok.
I guess these ones under discussion are just choc-block with levers instead of screws.
Me, following my usual practice with choc-block, I'd put the CPC in the middle, so it should be green/yellow. not just yellow?
 
Ideal do in sure or splice line I think and the splice line are "in line" connectors so I'm guessing those ines arnet from ideal and they probably dont have the patent on the inline name

Nah I don't think they are that brand. Toolstation also sell those and describe them as Ideal industries spliceline In-line connectors.

I believe the Wago 222 got heavily copied, there was talk of the design patent running out ?

The fact they have brown and blue colours indicates this is how to connect them but to use yellow would immediately put me off them. They also do a two pole one with just brown and blue.
the 3 core ones with yellow are for electricians who can use a bit of common sense and work out the yellow is for the cpc
the 2 core are for the bodgers and cowboys who just cut off the cpc or fold it back. why pay for a 3rd terminal you wont use!
