" 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.

" This switch is a good quality product that is smooth to operate when assembled correctly. The previous switch was difficult to operate and eventually failed. If the switch is sticky in operation take it back as it is faulty. "

You get what you pay for
15 Jun 2014
By Ashmerrett
, London
" I replaced the shower switch about a year ago with a cheaper alternative product which has since failed. The MK switch was more substantial and has a satisfying 'firmness' to the switch.
I am not an electrician but did not find it difficult to wire in the earth despite there only being one terminal - once all wires were cut to the appropriate length this was not a difficult task.
This switch has only been installed for a week but there have been no 'teething' issues and I hope that it will be a lot more than a year before I need to replace it. "

Disappointed
31 May 2014
By Sparky1969
, Norfolk
" As a professional electrician, I need my customers to feel confident that I am installing good quality gear. Unfortunately, in the last couple of years I have had a few of these switches fail (even new ones straight out of the packet), which makes me look bad.
Used to love MK, but the quality seems to to have deteriorated lately which is a shame.

A Real Swine To Connect Cables
2 May 2014
By BillDL

" My bathroom is absolutely stinking of sweaty body - mine! The existing generic switch packed in and I couldn't get a shower before going to work last night. I bought the new MK one on my way home and it has just taken me 35 minutes of arm-aching work to fit a simple switch to existing cabling - a job that should take less than 5 minutes.
It is rated at 50 Amps, so the manufacturers should expect 10mm square cables to be connecting with it, but they obviously didn't measure the inside diameter of the shared single earth terminal hole while it was on the design bench. Talk about trying to cram a square peg into a round hole!! Doing this up near ceiling level in a claustrophobic bathroom was guaranteed to turn the air very blue. I am now going to have to use some of that aromatherapy shower gel designed to help you unwind and de-stress yourself.
The nylon cord is very stretchy compared with the cord on the no-name brand that packed in, and if the truth be told I don't think the build quality is even as good as that generic switch with TWO earth terminals I have just replaced. We'll see how long this one lasts.
MK didn't think this one out properly, and it is very annoying from an otherwise excellent manufacturer. "

positive switch

By leggit

" This appears to be a nice smooth action switch, only issue I found (and as mentioned by previous review), there is only ONE earth terminal.
As it is an MK switch and therefore supposed to be top of the range I find it very disturbing that the design has not been thought out.
The switch has only been in position for 2 months so I have only given average ratings.

Could do better
10 Feb 2010
By jasg
, UK
" The switch seems solid enough, however one major annoyance is with the earth terminal. There is only one, so it is quite a wrestling match trying to get two 10mm earth cables into one terminal. - The noname switch it replaced had two terminals and was very easy to wire.
Would not buy again. "
