Quality External Switch
20 May 2016
By
, Cheltenham
" This is a quality product.
One point that I have not seen mentioned in other reviews is that the 4 cover retaining screws are of the self retaining type.
Very useful if being fitted externaly over grass or crazy paving where a dropped or fumbled screw would be almost impossible to find.
The neon is easily disconnected or removed if not needed or it " misbehaves ".

Top quality switch
10 Jan 2016

, Pinner
" 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). "

Good switch - but not for LEDs
28 Feb 2016
By
, Bicester
" These are great quality. Small and compact and appear well weatherproofed.
However, be aware that as these have a neon indicator light when switched off then if you use them to switch LEDs then the induced current will be sufficient to make the light glow constantly. This was a deal breaker for me as it was used as a light switch to a shed and it made the LED light shine sufficient to light up the shed at night! Apparently this is a well known issue with LEDs as they requie so little power. Thought I'd mention it as it might save someone else an afternoon of fault finding!
I changed to a standard switch without a neon indicator and it worked fine. These were returned. "

" Great switch good value for money but be careful if you use an led lamp as thebuilt in led indicator in the switch can cause the lamp to flash as the led is on when the switch is off so if this happens disconnect the led "

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. "
