Top quality switch
10 Jan 2016

" Bought to replace an MK weatherproof switch that had started to perish (after about 20 years). Not used BG stuff before and was a little wary of the quality, but this is a really well made switch, with quality fittings and components. A worthy replacement for the modern MK part which is almost twice the price. "

" Great switch that is well designed whilst still performing brilliantly.
The only thing it does not come with is plugs, cable grommets and screws for the wall. ( to be fair we all have such items laying around). "

Outdoor Light Switch
28 Mar 2015
By
, Market Harborough
" I wanted something to replace an ageing and failing outdoor switch.
This fits the bill exactly.
It seems well made and as it's only a switch is easy to wire up.
It has a neon but unless you have a neutral in the box it probably won't work as expected. As I have a live only the neon is on when the switch is off and off when the switch is on.
I guess it makes it easier to find in the dark.
Overall recommended. "

" This switch worked well for a few months but then the internal mechanism failed so it had to be replaced. I've got other external switches that have never gone wrong. "
