I've got an idea too - little plastic guards to fit over/behind the lugs on steel flush boxes to stop wires getting pierced by the fixing screws.

and have the word Safe

Humm. Given the reports of duff jobs done by individuals belonging to registered companies, perhaps the ASA/trading standard might object to the word safe. Perhaps 'limited risk' would be better....

Pozi drive screws to hold accessories on especially on polished chrome to prevent slippage

--------------
Maybe to prevent sub-normal people chewing them?

I don't know mate, that's why I'm asking.
Think I'm gonna start with strawberry.
I'd definitely buy those ones.
Had to use about 600 ty-raps today, and I can still taste them!

Sorry Dave didn't see the second part of your message.
I, like most will strap 50 or so to my belt loop, but if I pull more than one out, the spare will go in my mouth while it waits its turn to be used
I don't make a habit of chewing things!!. Grown out of that mate.

Actually if you made `em Brussell Sprout flavoured that would stop anyone being tempted to put them in their mouth

Bring back a old idea, different coloured screwdriver handles blue for pozi, red for phillips and black for slotted.

You can flavour them as well if you really insist.

I have to admit to using my mouth as a third hand at times, but given what I'm normally working in perhaps it's not such a good idea.
