    Why do you ask?

    You need to be careful selecting MF products ................ wago's are only MF in certain situations.

    Personally I've used the Hager units for years.........

    I have only used the wagobox and I like it very much as a MF box.
    It is only the wagobox junction box that is classed as MF though not the wagobox light junction box.
    Also the wagobox is only classed as MF if it is fastened with a cable zip tie.

    I'm looking to spur off a ring.
    I can't chase the walls to existing sockets and can't think of another way around using a JB.

    Ok sounds like a good idea you may need 2 juction boxes if there not enough slack on the cable

    My own, it's for an extractor fan in the kitchen. The walls are tiled and I really don't want to have to re-tile if I can help it.

    Lighting circuit is a good idea, the extractor is only 140w.
