MK - a name you can trust
17 Dec 2014
By Him675
, Guildford
" I now always purchase MK fittings both for quality and are user friendly to connect and fit. Some of the cheaper electrical fittings are more award to fit and do not always fit captive retaining screws which can be handy when fitting a ceiling switch! "

A well known brand
20 Nov 2014
By Manny24
, Oxford
" All electrical engineers will know MK is been around for ever and is a good quality product. MK has dropped its prices to match the current market but has kept a good quality product. Its good to see screw fix supplies the best quality products at reasonable prices as well as cheaper unknown brands. For the prices I paid at screw fix I would stick with MK "

" This replaced a MK pullcord switch that had been in constant use since the mid 70's.

Quality product as expected
13 Oct 2014
By spinchemist
, Oxford
" Easy for DIY'er to fit as replacement for existing pull-cord switch that had developed fault. Cord a good length, needed to shorten for standard height ceiling in ex-council house.
Switching action slightly less firm than it was on the switch being replaced but feels solid enough.
Have to cut out back to get cables in. No mounting screws supplied so used those on switch being replaced which I didn't mind as I rarely find screws and wall plugs supplied with items are good quality.
Bought MK as expect quality reliable product, only time will tell on that. Was better value than I found same item in any high street DIY stores.

MK all the way
11 Jul 2014
By JamScone
, Norfolk
" What can you say?
It's a lightpull, it works and that's it.
I'm a big fan of MK products as they just seem to work.
They can cost a fraction more than some cheaper brands or contractor multi-packs but the finish is just a bit nicer, meaning that rather than sticking out as an obviously cheap bulk buy with rough edges, you don't even tend to notice them,

MK pullcord light switch
7 Apr 2013
By oldsparky
, Wales
" Well made, reasonably priced, time will tell regarding reliability although I have always found MK products to stand the test of time, easy to install, features? it works well with smooth switching action not too loud but is positive, cord supplied is a good length ideal for high ceilings and cable access is good, however, it could do with a larger diameter earth connection point as I often have to install additional earthing at this location. It is exactly what I expect from one of the market leading brands. I would supply and install this to any customer who requires an efficient quality white pullcord light switch. "
