Like what lee111s said, its a DP but for your copper line (i.e. your phone line)

In reply to a post by williamsben16:
What is this


Why is this box open? Could you report it to Openreach if an engineer isn’t onsite please?

Does look like a DP in that clip joint, judging by those 2 or 5 pair cables that are probably heading to each of the houses.

Your friend are NOT allow to open it. You could faced serious trouble and legal action by Openreach if your friend did open it.

And given the number of thefts of copper wiring, if seen lifting a chamber a good chance of it being reported and police arriving

Words fail me. Interferon with BT plant, causing a possible hazard, ... I could go on.

Would you be happy with people turning up and opening your garage - just to see what was there?


And in one post you claim "a friend did" and in another "I did not know" - an imaginary friend maybe? one who shares your name and shoes?

So the thing is, and here’s the thing ....

You have illegally opened a footway box, what you were hoping to achieve is beyond me, since you don’t even recognise what it it is you have exposed ... shut the lid, carefully, and hope none of your neighbours have sobbed you in. Eejit.

Because these joints are designed to ‘live’ underground. Dirt on the outside is no reflection on the interior.

Which bit ?

There needs to be a plausible reason. What is actually wrong with your service ?

What are they in ‘old money’ ?

You’ve still not said what is actually the problem you are experiencing ?

What equipment are you using, and what’s the set up, what’s connected where ?

Underground plant needs a combination of clue of what you are looking at and a legal requirement to test for gas. Probably best left alone.

It may or may not be a DP ( no way can you tell by that pic ) It is a UG ( Under Ground ) joint in fact a large ped cap UCJ ( Universal Clip Joint )

As to the fool who open the box to take the pic , well he is one sad fool.

Ps looks like the box is a Joint Box 26
