quality isolator
27 Aug 2015
By chandelierman
, b'ham
" Remember this is an isolator not a switch. The design is to isolate for service not switch on. For this purpose you can't fault it. It's robust and elegant. Some lesser versions of inferior build crack and so you end up buying twice. Cable preparation is the key to success when you have two 10mm t&e at the isolation point. In summary another great product from screwfix. Good price and as usual very attentive service. "

Great Switch!
14 Aug 2015
By The1Bigshow

" Tips for making your shower isolator last (any makes)
1) make sure the terminations you do are tight when I mean tight I mean tight enough for you to struggle to undo!
2) make sure the copper is long enough no short measures as you need good conductivity as loose poor connections create heat which in turn makes the isolator burn out!
3) make sure you do not distort the isolator as this causes damage to switch I know its hard but be patient always buy deep boxes and arrange cables before making your first termination
4) THESE ARE NOT SWITCHES THEY MUST NOT BE USED TO SWITCH THE SHOWER OFF UNDER LOAD. THIS WILL DAMAGE THEM AND TO BE HONEST THERE IS NO NEED TO SWITCH THE SHOWER OFF UNLESS YOU HAVE A FAULT! "

" As you would expect from MK really. Well made, functions perfectly, easy to install, slightly more expensive then the rest.
Never had a problem with them.

" In the last 12mths I have fitted 3 of these from other brands so this time I decided to spend a bit more. And it is a trusted brand name. I have gave a 1 star rating for the reliability as its only been used a few times and only time will tell. "

Quality mk products always
2 Feb 2015
By Newsparky8

" Not the cheapest switch out there but you get what you pay for I've found. Sturdy item with solid terminals. Haven't gave the item full five stars only because of price and the fact I don't know how reliable it is as I've just fitted it. Only Time will tell. Should last mind all MK products tend too. Hope this helps. "

MK 50A Pull Cord Switch
30 Jan 2015
By Custardgaz
, Wirral
" Seems well made. Terminasl seem sturdy enough for the new standard of cable, which is like stuffing rebar into a choc block.
No idea of reliability. I guess time will tell.
These modern showers do seem to take a toll on these switches. Two showers in our gaff and I've changed both switches in last 18 months. "

Switched On!

, Durrington. Wilts.
" This is the 3rd shower switch I have purchased in the last 18 Months.
I hasten to add the other two switches were purchased from other sources with economy in mind, boy what a mistake that was.
For what was a couple of pence more this switch is solid, very positive on and off and no delay in operation?
A very quick delivery, altogether very happy with purchase and would recommend the item and Screwfix to anybody.
