just ordered a free sample, see what the score is.
 
These are great.

The Wagobox and connectors are a cheaper solution than the new Ashley maintenance free JBs and easier to use. Under the 17th edition all JBs with screw terminals have to in in an accessible location (not under floorboards).

Even using a J201 or Chock Box and connector strip for a downlight, you are looking at a premium of around £1 for a wago and it will save you 5 minutes.

Like push fit plumbing these are the way forward.

Yes Hellermann do a version called Helacon, I've used both Helacon & Wago & they do save time
I use them in the switch back box for connecting neutrals & cpc's.

Used the helecon ones, save buckets of time on jobs and to be honest don't see me using the connector blocks again. It's the way forward gents.

I also use them, i hate screw treminals as i have found so many lose on faults that i have attended, it could be due to the limp wrist guy who tightend them though. i think that these type of terminals should be used more often as they are in some light fittings already.:)

I use them all the time and find they are just superb, especially when working on overhead lighting. So much easier and quicker to work with than screw connectors.

A fair bit of twisting, following manufacturers instructions, will release them. Not such a problem with fully sleeved conductors. A nightmare with loose sleeved CPC. Still a great product though.

Also applied for free samples - I already use similar pushfit connectors for loose earth connections at Class II and at intermediates. NICEIC technical class these as compliant non-accessible connections - provided have appropriate BS approval (not chinese fake imports!!).

Anyone have a link to above or a supplier who does cheap junction boxes. On the main point of topic, I use Helacon, but have a job coming up with over 200 downlights. Could do with some boxes.

Cheers
