    Hey folks

    me again, I know this a very long shot, but does anyone have one these sat gathering dust in an attic garage or shed, why you may ask? well recently our gainsborough shower went up the wall and as money is tight we have been dontated the above shower with a few screws missing I have looked on line for the screws I require and no joy so I rung triton direct and they tried to sell me a £24 wire terminal including all wires when all I need is two terminal screws oh and i need all 4 case screws although I can get these from triton for £2.50 plus postage that I dont mind paying for I know its a long shot guys and girls

    thanks in advance

    just a thought could I buy a strip of chock block and replace the current terminal block rather than paying for oe fitment at £24 plus postage its a 8.5kw shower so works out at 36.1 amps so would need 60amp chock block as 45 amp does not seem to be available

    any thoughts

    does chock block not come with the screws the problem being the oe chock block is quite large with large terminal screws and want to make sure the replacement chock block is correct ampage is 60 amps sufficiant

    yeah need the 4 cover screws but dont mind paying £2.50 for them direct from triton as unlikely to be able to get from elsewhere so can you confirm replacing the original terminal block with a piece of 60 amp chock block is safe and legal?
