These are great with an modification

I have had a number of these in my system for years and have always suffered the design fault, namely the slot blocking with dust causing the gate to stay partially open reducing the suction in the system. Time after time I had to remove the gates and clean the slots.
Well done Kerin for his suggestion, cutting a small corner off the gate at the lowest point. The gates all shut well now and when they are open the loss of suction is unnoticeable.

OK (ish)

As others have mentioned, a design fault means that the dust gets trapped in the slot of the blast gate, and after a while it prevents the gate from closing properly.
I didn't want to spend a lot on the metal ones, so I just cut off the bottom corner, about a 20mm triangle, to expose the blast gate. Now every time you shut the gate, it pushes the dust out of the slot.
It's not ideal, as you lose a little bit of suction when the gate is open, but it reduces the number of times you have to clean the slot out.

Amazed at Axminster selling these

I am extremely surprised at Axminster selling these, they are not up to the standards that Axminster seem exact in the products they sell.
I would have thought that after seeing a couple of poor reviews they would look into what the problem is but they haven't done that on this occasion. You are much better off buying the metal blast gates, they do cost £6 more than these plastic ones but they perform very well and do not have any leakages that I can hear or see from dust flowing.

Poor design.

The other review mentions these leaking, and I've been using these for sometime. They jamb very quickly with dust resulting in them not shutting down properly. This is a design fault where they clearly have not been tested before offering them to the public. If you could open them then they could be cleared, unfortunately they are sealed. So not a good buy.

They LEAK.

Don't bother getting these as they leak when the gate is closed and therefore loose suction. I would pay the extra and get the aluminum ones as they are not as bad.
