    It needs to be a lot bigger than that to cover "the mistakes" that our plasterers make! They also make the mistake of filling the backbox with plaster.

    I had a look on the Screwfix and Toolstation websites to see if I could get hold of some 1-gang and 2-gang Electrical Cover Mistake Plates, but neither had any in stock. Typical. I'll give CEF a ring on Monday to see if they can order me some.:)

    On a job this week the plasterers have pushed all the ceiling cables into the ceiling and plastered over all the holes...

    Don't worry though, we have a special cable location tool.

    This special cable location tool is also very useful for hammering nails into the tyres of a plasterer's van!
