A gas meter box cover, otherwise known as a gas meter overbox, gas meter cover, gas box cover or outside gas meter box cover, is a secure container that covers a gas meter on the exterior (or sometimes interior) of a property. They are most commonly made from metal or hard-wearing plastic to withstand harsh weather conditions, and are available in different sizes and colours to fit your requirements.
Fitting outside gas meter box covers yourself is easy and you don’t need to be experienced in DIY – but you will need to be able to use a drill if you are replacing the whole meter box. We have a few handy guides on how you can fit or fix a gas box cover on our ‘How to‘ page.
In some cases, you will not need to replace your whole gas meter box altogether, you may only need to replace your gas meter box door. If your meter door is hanging off, you may not need to replace the whole overbox – you will only need some small repair parts to do the job. We have everything you will need to replace, fix or repair your gas meter box.
Our gas meter box covers can all be painted / sprayed to your prefered colour, which is handy if your house is coloured and you want it to blend in. If you do give it a go, make sure you send us some pictures in of your painted gas box cover replacement!
The RepairMyMeterBox team does not replace or fix your external gas meter cover. Our meter boxes are easy to fit yourselves, even if you are not experienced in DIY. We have put together some step-by-step guides on how you can install your gas meter box. You can find these on our ‘How to’ page.
It is the responsibility of the homeowner to fix or replace a broken gas box cover, not the utility company, as it is part of the fabric of the building.
You can order your brand new gas box door from RepairMyMeterBox, view our selection of replacement doors above. If you have any questions on which meter box door is right for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
What do our customers say?
A really good piece of kit which arrived very quickly and was a good and simple fit.
- Mr G - Amazon
The item was received before the expected date and was very well packaged. Wouldn't hesitate to use this seller again
- Mr Papworth from Lymington
Arrived earlier than expected well packed and as described - contacted seller to request black fitments instead of white with black casing and supplied no problem - I’m well pleased.
- ANNE WILLIAMSON
Items arrived early. The lock components from my meter box were missing and the door was swinging in the wind. 30 seconds later the new lock was fitted and the door was shut. Excellent result

Great Meter Box Cover
My old door was cracked, hinge was broken and it fell off on windy days! The cover I purchased was the perfect size with a cm spare around the old frame. It is well engineered (door swapped to open other way in less than a minute) and well made. My rendered wall was way off flat but the cover was easy to contour (I used a multi tool). The job was finished with a bead of silicone

- Mr Miller
Exactly what I needed. I needed to cut out a portion of the lower edge due to cabling entering the box. There was a template already there to cut out. Nice tidy and watertight after a bit of silicone sealant round the sides. Result. Happy customer

Thanks for the fulfilling the above order, can’t fault anything
Hello, Just wanted to drop you some feedback re the above order. The delivery was as you said as was the product. Being honest I was a bit sceptical about it taking 30 mins to fit from looking at the video, but it did and was really easy to fit. It quickly and easily turned a battered meter cabinet into one that looked brand new, and does exactly what I wanted it to do at a very competitive price. Have recommended your company and the cabinet to a couple of people already, who looked on in interest whilst I was fitting it. Cheers.
