I rate them very highly Antric and use them as my unit of choice.



In fact, if I'm honest, I turn my nose up a little bit at Wylex and MK which is ridiculous and completely without substance. I wonder where that came from as the cogs of my brain turned?



Hager RCDs are considered to be high integrity and I genuinely believe that a hager DB is less likely to have nuisance tripping problems. I've said this before on here, but I changed my parents' old re wireable jobby for a hager some time back. They live in a country village where the systems are mostly TT. When there is a storm they often get a power cut and the RCDs in the village trip.



The power is restored but the whole village is still sitting around in the dark because they don't know it has come back on. My Mum loves it that her RCD doesn't trip in the storms any more. The rest of the village of course, think that her Daughter has done something illegal to her electrics. I'm quite popular in that village!



I have a hager here and it puts up with various Sunday afternoon dabblings from the shed.



They are quite big though, and sometimes you will need to use something else less wide for the same number of breakers...you'll see.



For the last couple of years I've been collecting the little spirit levels from boards I install and I wish I had done it for years. I plan to make earrings or something out of them one day. That's daft too since I don't have pierced ears but I'll think of something. But if I line them all up next to each other, the bubbles are all over the place. Do not trust the spirit levels, send them here.



Give one a try. I like them and I trust them.

Edit...who is Hagar? I thought that was a little Scandinavian bloke with a funny hat?



I never had you down for a Sun reader Zs.

Hiya Dougie, Are you the same Power plus that is invarious locations in Scotland.
I was hoping you might have been just round the corner from me but unless there will be a massive earthquake or subsidence on my house you are miles away from Manchester.
Impressive website.

Hi Antric, sorry late reply.

Yes Scottish based and work travelled throughout Scotland.

Were you hoping we were round the corner so we can show you how to fit a Hager board :-)
