Steps To Replace A Broken Gas Meter Box…

  1. Your current meter box will likely be held in place by 3 widgets. If these have not already fallen out or been lost, remove them.
  2. Your meter box cover will now be easy to pull off, leaving the backplate fixed against the wall.
  3. Using our gas surface mounted meter box Mk2, you will simply be able to fit this to the existing backplate, using your three widgets to secure your new meter box in place. It couldn’t be more simple!

We do offer an alternative solution for replacing a damaged gas meter box Mk2. This is using the metal hook over gas overbox, which fits to the existing backplate.

  1. This will simply need to slide this over the existing backplate.
  2. You will find there are two points at the bottom to fix it to the brickwork.

Both these offer a long-lasting and cost-effective solution to fixing a broken gas meter box. Don’t spend unnecessary money replacing the entire box through a gas engineer!
