Excellent, good value

" Bought this to extend an existing installation to allow for outside sockets.
Very happy with it, looks neat, very good quality - typical Wylex.
Great CU for £18.36 with plenty of room to fit 5 RCBOs and has plenty of knockouts all round.
I only needed 2 ways for 16A RCBOs so had to blank the rest using 'Wylex SFNHB1PP Solid Blank Plates Pack of 5' Screwfix item number 35819.
Would certainly use one of these again, Although if I realised there was a metal one at the time would have chosen that for any future additions of SWA. "

Value for Money

" The Wylex range is best known for reliability. I have had the 11 way version installed about seven years ago and has given me excellent service. Therefore, when I needed to expand the circuits, the choice was obvious. I am also very impressed with the service Screwfix provides. Ordered the stuff 17.45ish the day before. The products were on the door step 10.00ish the next day. What more could you ask? Nice one you guys as Screwfix !!! "

Usual Wylex quality

" Good unit, not a great lot of space especially when fitting RCBO's, I like to leave plenty of 'slack' on the cables when terminating, but still does the job fine, good quality, plenty of knockouts ! "

Major problem with switch .
8 Jan 2015
By Proficientdiyer

" I am not an electrician so please excuse anything that may not sound right . Wanted to replace a very old ceramic unit that was last bit of old wiring . So bought this to act as a 100 watt main switch then split into 50 to new consumer unit I had already fitted plus 32 out to garage and shed combined and 16 to all outside lights through a double pole switch . The 50,32 and 16 were the mcbs I put in this unit . Not expecting a problem did all the wiring and did the 100 into main switch last . One of the clamps (positive) that is operated by screw at front would not budge . Had to take main switch out and by brute force get it to clamp cable . Could not use another 100 switch as the Wylex has positive and negative other way round to other makes . When I went to recheck all the wires the clamp again did exactly the same thing again and stuck open . Could be one off but on a new switch ? I know it is a cheap unit but did not expect such poor quality control . "

Would probably use this product again.
