" As you'd expect from MK, a good, top quality product, solid construction and well marked, well space cable entry points. Easy, for a diy-er, to be confident that the job's right and safe. Being able to reserve for collection is a winner ever time. "

Does what it's meant to !
4 Jan 2016

" As above...
There's a lot of dos and donts in the reviews for this isolator switch...some good, some obvious but at the end of the day if you are fitting one if these you should know what you are doing /dealing with anyway. One " tip " I don't see mentioned anywhere, so I'll say it, the feed to this switch will be permanantly live...so switch off at the mains before fitting this... There you are..another, " obvious " tip..but maybe not to some.
I've bought this to replace another old /broken one... So it is what it is.
Someone mentioned in reviews too about the " sharp corner edges " as opposed to " rounded off " edges... Well you can buy either.. The " tip " here is, to make sure you buy the switch to match the 'box' you have /are buying. ;)
Ps.. When the job is done, don't forget to switch the power back on at the mains.... I'm getting carried away now aren't I. ?! "

Solid reliable action
24 Nov 2015
By
, Buckinghamshire
" MK are the market leader for electrical fittings, at a price premium. This is a good example of their product and does the job well.
Remember to torque up the screws correctly and dress the cables so that they don't strain the connectors, as that can cause the switch to malfunction after some years. With 10mm that's hard to do but use deep boxes and cut the cables to the correct length before connecting.
The only thing they could improve is to bring the design in line with their other faceplate products (Logic Plus) and round off the edges to match, rather than have the sharp-edged design that this one has. It's a bit 1980s really! "

quality isolator
27 Aug 2015
By
, 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

" 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! "

" 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. "

" 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
, 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. "

" 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.
