Hi all. Simple question i need to connect a few sockets in a row. This will be done with surface mount boxes and 20mm conduit.

However i cant find any surface boxes with side entries, only on the bottom which isnt possible apart from repeatingly looping the conduit! I know i've used them before but cant find them at CEF or TLC?

Can you use metal clad accessories?
Failing that, use a soft plastic back box and a 20mm holesaw - won't look as nice as M/C as the holes will need to go higher or lower than the mounting screw.
Otherwise, could you look at using mini trunking?

thanks for reply. I looked for metalclad but CEF told me they had none with side knockouts. I was sure id used them and thought i was goin mad!

Managed to turn some up at TLC thankfully!
