It looks great. I have an immediate application in mind for the low profile. Does anyone dare guess how long that 'synthetic neoprene rubber' will hold up? How long will it stay attached to the polycarbonate? confused

I also question its durability. I did sign up to get a sample. We use these on our upscale homes.

I recieved some samples in the mail yesterday. These things look pretty good. I didn't relize at first you can still use a standard handy box, or cut-in with it.

I wonder what the price is?

Got mine too. My wife is going to give one to her electrician Monday to try out at one of their pools. I'm going to give the other one a tough life on my boat dock, replacing one that got brittle and broke from the sun.

I actually saw some of these the other day. They look quality enough that I will try them somewhere.

I recieved my samples, too- very nice, and very high quality. I don't think durability will be an issue, but it's hard to say what it will look like in 10 years.

Got mine super quick too. Tells me something good about a company that actually comes through when they offer a free sample.

One of my customers just happen to need an in-use, so he agreed to let me try one of these out (gave him the part for free, and offered to change it out for free if it didn't last until next year or so).

We'll see...
