Good value shower pull

"A good value shower pull. Needs quite a hard pull to switch it on. We hope that it will loosen up a bit in time. Can't rate reliability yet as only been in use for a month."

positive switch
23 Jan 2014
By leggit
, Hove
"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."

Hard to wire and died
5 Apr 2014
By GorillaTape
, Worcester
"Sturdy feeling model. However as others noted only one earth connector which made this a *real* struggle to fit.
It has a rotary switch as well as neon for power indication which is nice, but the mechanism does take a bit of pulling to turn the switch. Had hoped this would ease off with use, but it didn't.
Switch failed within 1 yr. Power flickers as the switch is in transit between on and off, but that's it.
Previous switch lasted round 10 years so obviously disappointed."

Replacement For Failed unit
27 Mar 2014
By MarkMcD
, NOTTINGHAM
"I purchased this as an exact replacement for a unit i purchased from Screwfix previously. As it was past a year old, i could not exchange and had to buy new. I only have a 8KW shower with 10mm cabling and it burnt out in just over a year, so if it does it again , i will but a nother make. There are cheaper ones around but i thought this was a quality product so paid the extra. Lets wait and see."

poor shower switch from MK
19 Aug 2012
By parrahandy
, kishorn
"I don't believe MK can make these, they must be just branded MK. I have had to change about 5 in the last 5 years, the rotary indicator jamms up and at best you have to WD40 that part of it. Also one earth terminal is a poor design, would have expected better from the top manufacturer."

Failing after six months
11 Dec 2011
By Marmion
, Manchester
"MK has a reputation for quality - this is the reason I chose this brand to replace a failed inferior product fitted by a Contractor.
The shower is used once a day and the power is turned off after each use.
Now after approx six months it crackles when switched on. The shower is not heating water when the switch is operated so no significant current is being switched. A second switch pull is necessary to give a 'clean' contact.
It will be replaced as soon as I find a better quality switch that will fit the square box.
