    Are those available in South Africa? I also came across this from Hager but I don't know if it's available in South Africa or neither

    To make a mistake is human, to learn from that mistake is knowledge and knowledge is strength.

    Well a friend of mine has found the following connector box. It is 65mm in diameter so I'm not sure if it will fit into a standard hole made for a downlight, what is the standard cut out size?
    The thing I'm not to happy about is that the method of holding the cable secure is a rubber seal, one on each off the four entries, which is cut in half and one half is in the top of the connector box, and that comes together with the second half, which is mounted in the other half of the connector box.
    There doesn't appear to be much protection against stain on the cable but in reality, how much strain is there when using a pvc push in gland with no glue and finger - tightened.
    Here is the link to the manufacturer, SA product nogal, and a picture

    I would hate to try connect more than 2 cables into the rip box.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.

    Saw the rip box at ARB.

    They cost more than double the price of a GU10 lamp holder with bracket and block, so what's the point.

    Another thing. If you secure the rip box with a screw, make your connection inside and pop on the lid, you ain't gonna be able to open it again, unless you break it in the process. There's no way you gonna get a screwdriver into the slot to twist the lid open.

    Not for me, thank you

    Cheers and peace out ... Derek

    The point is that the light fitting you mentioned is fitted with a connection box and not a junction box. Pictures attached.
    Even the connection box on the fitting mentioned has no way of terminating the cable on the sheathing as required by SANS.

    Check the first photo on left. Perfect with facility to secure the sheath at R19.

    That's the one I use.
