    After filling my 2 multiplugs with saltwater for the second time I decided to change things around a bit . Look around on the forum for some ideas and make up a smallish distribution box to suit your needs .

    Agree, theyre all junk!!!
    I got lucky about 5years ago to find 4x south african made SABS approved multiplugs from way back from a friend. Even the twopoint outlets work! Unfortunately the company no longer exists as they couldnt keep up with the chinese prices.
    I have been looking for good quality ones for a very long time with no luck.
    Please let me know if you manage to find any. I would also need another two.

    Don't you mean ACDC - there's one in Montague Gardens (Cape Town)

    I opted to build a DB myself and am glad I put the effort into it.

    It varies from shop to shop, look for products with the warranty sticker, can be found at most builders, BEX and home depot
