    Wheres the best value for £ metal buckle clips to be found in 2019, ive seen the SAREN ones but they are well pricey, and you need to buy the nails for them separately. The Shneider metal clips from screwfix £12 per 100 wtf. Where are the compliant housebashers getting clips for T&E nowdays ??

    Yes I believe so,or proper metal containment,where appropriate.
    Let’s go back,go back,when we were all installing correctly & proper,conduit,trunking etc .

    521.10.202 Wiring systems shall be supported such that they will not be liable to premature collapse in the event of a fire.

    NOTE 1: Wiring systems hanging across access or egress routes may hinder evacuation and firefighting activities.
    NOTE 2: Cables installed in or on steel cable containment systems are deemed to meet the requirements of this regulation.
    NOTE 3: This regulation precludes, for example, the use of non-metallic cable clips or cable ties as the sole means of support where cables are clipped direct to exposed surfaces or suspended under cable tray, and the use of non-metallic cable trunking as the sole means of support of the cables therein.
    NOTE 4: Suitably spaced steel or copper clips, saddles or ties are examples that will meet the requirements of this regulation.

    The Schneider clips are actually quite nice and you don't have to use them along the entire run. Every third clip or something is probably going to be enough.

    Personally, I'd like to get some buckle clips but like you @haptism@haptism I've not managed to find them at a decent price.

    This isn't for clipped direct but the clips used in this video are smart (bit pricey) but gives a good explanation of premature collapse and whats required

    (spot the upside down sockets :))

    I'd struggle to think of too many places in a domestic install where I would need buckle clips really.

    I get mine from Saren. Don't use that many of them, so cost isn't really an issue, and their customer service is excellent.

    Only place i can think of is in a garage, don't think I've ever just clipped a cable across someones living room wall.

    If we are running surface cabling then its usually mini trunking and those D-Line clips.
