Cold, not surge protected for those dodgy outdoor xmas lights

Think you need to research RCD vs Surge Protector.... you got them mixed up

Paid £12.99 from Amazon at beginning of December, that was without the 8m 4 gang extension. Bargain and very happy with product, was outside for about 6 weeks and not a drop of moisture inside.

Presumably you meant RCD. Either way, just plug the extension lead into one or replace the lead with an alternative. This is still a good deal.

I bought this full price before Christmas & used for the outside lights. It worked well & was worth the full price I paid.

I paid £20 odd for mine and it is superb. Well made and has done us two Christmas periods so far.

anyone using this with timers inside the box? just wondering if they work or even fit on the extension within the box itself or do most people just use one on the main plug for the extension....

I've used one with a timer plugged into the 4-way and 12V transformer plugged into the timer. That was in a predecessor to this one, though, and it's up in the loft where I've no desire to go right now to measure it, so I can't guarantee it would fit in this one. You could always plug a short single-socket extension into the 4-way, lay it flat in the bottom of the box and plug into that.

In stock in Carmarthen if it's of help to anyone. Heat added, good price for this, thanks OP!

Can't believe you're right. That would be very strange. Think you should have checked more carefully before posting. In the base of the box you should find a bar that pulls out when the door is open. Slot your cables into the slots and grips that are revealed, push the bar back in and close the door. Simple.

Hi. The pictures would suggest that you are correct. I hope so.

Dodgy outdoor lights don't cause a surge. They may be affected by one, but then that's a problem when buying dodgy christmas lights, not buying an extension to plug them into.

I've had this same box for a few years now. Good quality and nice long lead. Used for Xmas lights in the front garden.

This is correct. There is no drilling required. The bit along the long edge unclips and comes completely off revealing a row of gaps with cable grips sitting on soft rubber. When you clip the bar back in, it seals round the cables before closing the lid.

Yes it's only held in place with Velcro strip

No stock anywhere near me. However, Homebase were doing this for the same price for a couple of months before xmas, but of course they had put the price up by beginning of December. If you can't get these locally at Argos then keep an eye at Homebase online and I'm sure it'll be there again soon. Currently £15.98 there;

If you look at the picture of the box open, it clearly shows the part where the cables go out of the box. I bought the hlaf price Screwfix one before Christmas which is very similar but came with a mechanical timer and an RCD to plug it into.
