About this deal

Pick up individual electrical back boxes or trade packs, including up to 10, spending less per piece.

It allows a standard switch or socket to fit into its electrical back box when the threads on the back box have become damaged, whilst providing the additional facility to raise or lower or tilt the faceplate, as required. The threads in the lugs securing the socket or switch to the back box can strip, meaning the socket cannot be firmly fitted.In the end I used blu-tack to create enough grip to hold the new nut in place behind the lug, and then made a big blu-tac plug to hold everything in place when I put the switch plate back. When developing the overall concept, the design had to require no special tools, be safe and easy to use. Fitting a back box is normally done before the wall is papered but if you wanted to add an extra socket in your home and the wall has been papered then this video might help. We only selected brands that matter to ‘sparks’ and ourselves, as hands on electricians, we love the concept of Back Box Repair Clip and the time, labour and cost saving solution it provides. Socket back boxes are available from top trade brands with different knockout options for easy cable entry.

After removing all snags from the inside of the back box, the clip simply pushes on with ease, and due to the tensioning and calibration of the clip, it will remain firmly and securely in place. Will usually dispatch within same working day if paid before 19:45 GMT (excludes weekends and holidays). Don't forget - you might need to strip the existing thread (in the backbox) before you use this, otherwise it probably won't work. You can fit a back box the same way in a wall that has not been decorated but you do not need to be as careful when doing it.

Back boxes are essential for a wiring installation, providing the rear housing required when fitting a switch or socket. This section has hundreds of instructional videos showing how to do the easiest of DIY related jobs right up to a full bathroom refurbishment.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Back Box Saver saves time and money in providing a new secure fixing if your electrical back box has a broken screw thread. The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network.

BBS1 is intended to eliminate the need to replace electrical boxes which have become damaged due to the stripping of the metal fittings. The current solution - replacing the back box - is time-consuming and costly, especially if the wall is re-decorated. make absolutely clear that all the old treads are removed - if not they will get in the way of getting the screw into the nut supplied.
