Acctim 33282 Falkenburg Mantel Clock, Cream
Acctim 33282 Falkenburg Mantel Clock, Cream
Price: £19.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Item, 21 Oct. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plenty of people have commented on this clock so I will just add my own observations:

First of all it arrived very promptly the next day although it was ordered on Amazon Prime.

It arrived well packaged and undamaged.

The actual clock face has a readable size of 4.125” (105mm) in diameter and 4.625” (115mm) outside bezel diameter.

It has large fingers (hour & minute) and Roman Numerals printed on the face.

The face is NOT green but an off white, maybe it is down to certain peoples eyesight that they describe a green tinge on the face when viewed against the Cream clock body.

The body colour is a ‘shabby chic’ matt cream colour although to be honest the ‘shabby chic’ finish does not work that well on such a small sized clock and tends to look more like a quick paint finish that requires another coat. Although this is not really noticeable even at a short distance.

The body is very solid and quite heavy and looks to have been machined from a solid block of MDF type material and anyone who has tried to paint MDF will know how the first coat leaves paint streaked areas after the first coat has dried, hence the ‘shabby chic’ finish.

Based on the above it would be very easy to re-paint the clock body during home decoration in a colour to match emulsion painted walls or paint décor.

The clock bezel appears to be a brass coloured/coated plastic of good quality finish and I assume that the face is also a clear acrylic or similar material and not glass.

The clock body is well machined and uniform in shape, but as one person commented, if you look at the clock face on there is a small right to left misalignment of about 3mm of the dial being central to the body, but it is not that noticeable.

Inserting the battery (1 AA size, not supplied) is a bit tight, but I found it best to insert the + (positive) end first and then press the battery fully home.

The time is easily readable across a normal living room, so I would conclude that for the price and on the proviso that it continues to keep good time, then this clock is a good purchase as a nicely understated Mantle Clock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good storage option, 22 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very lightweight, but seems to be well enough made. The full zipped top makes it easy to put large items inside although I would restrict such items to reasonably lightweight soft stuff like bedding, pillows Etc. The material has a waterproof inner, so should keep stuff free of damp if stored in a loft or a caravan, there is also a small strap type handle at each end for lifting purposes, ideal for pulling it up through a loft door. I managed to get two full sized duvets (once rolled up) stuffed into mine and also zipped up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks like quality, 22 Aug. 2017

A bit slow in arriving so I purchased another locally as I needed to finish the installation. However this looks OK and well made with a good array of LED’s arranged inside the acrylic bulb, so it looks quite durable although as yet untested.

Garage Hook Up Socket - 16Amp - Waterproof IP44 - Caravan / Motorhome / Industrial
Offered by ElectricalWorld
Price: £10.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A few niggles, 22 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very well made box and easy access for cables and wiring, the box is cube like, but the socket part is sloped to direct water away from the contact pins. My main criticism is that I would have expected some sort of rubber seal between the back of the front cover and the box itself to make it more weatherproof. In addition the plastic ‘knock-out’ for the rear cable gland doesn’t knock out, so had to be cut with craft knife making it difficult to fit the gland rubber properly.

This review is from: Wheel Chocks With Handles (2)
They seem to do the job well enough, although a bit smaller than I imagined they would be. They are lightweight and appear to be robust enough for casual use on my caravan for chocking up the tyre on the levelling ramp or preventing roll back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not so cheerful, 4 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very poorly made, I had to carefully whittle away plastic from the main SDHC slot as it was so badly aligned with the inner contacts, I was very dubious of trusting my camera memory card to this device, but it does actually read the card OK once fitted to the PC. A pity really as otherwise it looks reasonably neat.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK but could be better., 4 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item does the job OK and was very easy to fit, it is woth noting that the fitting comes with a pre-wired length of soft flexible co-ax cable, so its quite easy to route it inside your caravan/motorhome, it does not look like this end fitting is supposed to be removed from the outer case so you need to thread the cable through the hole first prior to screwing the box into position. Like most of these add-ons/replacements they appear to be fragile and this is no exception, the body itself looks sturdy enough, but I have my doubts about the cover as this could be easily broken if you are careless. As an aside these as usual seem to come in a bright white plastic finish only which to me is out of character with most caravans, so I like to spray such fittings with a suitable colour to match my van, the good news is that they take an acrylic paint very well with good adhesion. I have two main criticisms otherwise I would have given it a 5 star rating, the first is that the outside cable input connection is very tight and if you have big fingers you will struggle when tightening it up, the manufacturer would be advised to slope the fitting for better access. The second one is that for some reason the cover is not intended to fully close after fitting the cable and only latches part open. Again looking at the design it could quite easily be changed so as to close fully after the cable has been connected.
