    I've two cables running outside that I was going to put lights on.
    Selling the house so want to make them look nice and tidy, but not like an unfinished house.

    I presume something like this http://www.screwfix.com/p/bg-nexus-4-pole-junction-box/33518
    Can anyone recommend something smaller, and or cheaper?

    Thanks

    Wiska make smaller ones...

    ...but I personally would avoid their even smaller ones, I don't like the 'clip on lid' idea when it's supposed to be waterproof. Give me a screw on cover any day! Don't think they even include a terminal block in the smaller ones either.

    Gaz :)

    2 cheap lights would do the trick and look a lot better to a prospective purchaser
