    I'm about to run in an additional RF outlet from my receiver to the loft.....however, when SKY made the original install they stuck these little plastic covers over the holes they made which is quite neat to look at. My problem is I can't find anywhere that sells these plastic plates and don't even know what they are actually called. Even SKY told me they couldn't help and suggested I speak with a local installer. Any help very much. appreciated as I've spent the last 4 hours surfing the web and am now thoroughly frustrated.

    Thanks

    Just a thought but if they're square things the size of light switches and rf outlets, B&Q is the best

    If you are talking about things that make the hole neat then www.screwfix.co.uk they are gromets or similar, saw them in the catalogue last night, useful site.[​IMG]
    the small ones should do it, they are pipe collars and at 10 £1.39 from screwfix worth a shot, know you know what they are, a trip to B&Q should be easier.
    Screwfix code 18405

    Thanks for the advice guys but still no joy. The best way to describe them is they look like tumble dryer outlets but much smaller. I checked last night and each one had the sky logo on them which suggests they are made for/by sky.......nowhere else seems to have them.

    Sounds like you need a friendly installer then, whereabouts are you, and I'm sure someone will suggest one.
