    Hi all
    Would anyone know if a new Hager RCBO would fit into one of these old Hager boards?
    I have to do a small amount of work and there is no RCD protection.
    Thanks

    No I couldn't get to it. There is a soft top jag in the way! The husband died a couple of weeks ago. and the garage is full I had to zoom in to get this pic.
    Thanks

    There is already different ones in there Hager are quite good at updating but still new protective devices fitting in old style boards if in any doubt give them a call but as our Hager board at home the new ones fit in ok.

    Any old excuse! As above but they are a bit pricey though.

    Ha Ha.
    He was a hoarder. The jag is beautiful. I was worried about scratching it while leaning over to get the photo.
    He's left it to the grandkids so she has to find a buyer. I can't remember if she said £16K or £14K

    Fitted Hager ADN RCBO into old insulated CU. Fitted fine, but room for wiring/connections bit tight, so depends how the previous electrician dressed his/her cables inside CU.

    Like the one below.

    It was done about 20years ago. The electrician has been in the business a long time so I assume he did a good job.

    Hager is one of my preferred makes of kit. They are quite good at ensuring compatibility between different parts and CU's.. They also have very good customer service so if in any doubt send them pictures or give them a calland they will tell you what is compatible and isn't.
    Do shop around though as prices can vary quite a bit between suppliers

    I would say it's more of a quality issue than cost went into wholesaler we use it was cheaper to buy MK unswitched socket for underneath worktop than basic range.
