    Are these any good for chipboard flooring?
    Does the 'plug' fit flat so that you wont see it under carpets?

    I can recommend them for chipboard definitely. They’re a marvellous bit of kit.

    Seen many a new build floor riddled with them, plasterers shove up the boards and trap the wires between the underside of joists :D

    Is it a good finish with the plug in?
    The carpets not going to sag into the hole?

    The hole and rebate is made with a special hole cutter that matches the plugs. There’s a smidge of a gap around the perimeter of the plug... but even linoleum would cover and not show through.

    Normally fit the extra / plastic discs

    Wouldn’t recommend for traffic areas unless you glue it down

    It would be under or just in front of a radiator

    It’s for a loft conversion
    I need to get pipes under the floor before walls are built.
    It will have to be push fit
    I can then make a hole and reach in to connect the rad pipes

    Is there a less expensive version of the caps?
