Contain electrical fittings like light switches and power outlets with an electrical back box from Toolstation. A badly installed electrical back box can result in a socket faceplate that is too high, too low or sloping. BBS1 is intended to eliminate the need to replace electrical boxes which have become damaged due to the stripping of the metal fittings.

Back boxes are essential for a wiring installation, providing the rear housing required when fitting a switch or socket.
