Goodbye fusewire!
5 Feb 2016
By
, West Sussex
" Just fitted new MCB's to replace 1960's rewireable fuse bridges in Wylex consumer unit.
As tenants moving in shortly, thought it advisable to ensure something simple (and tamper proof) was in place.
I expect that failing light bulbs may trip 6A breaker #testament to sensitivity of MCB) but much safer.
Have rated reliability as 5*, although don't know how they will last, but have only had one problem with MCB's over many years and that was one that became oversensitive - hardly a bad thing!

Easiest job ever..
24 Jan 2016
By
, Wirral, Merseyside.
" These MCBs are an excellent piece of kit.
Replaced six in the time it would have taken to replace new wire in blown old type.
Would suggest a cross headed securing screw instead of the slotted one would be better.
Not able to speak on performance / reliability so soon after installation but do not expect any problems. "

Upgrade an old type fusebox.
12 Mar 2015
By
, South Lakes, Cumbria
" These are a brilliant piece of kit. Switch off the mains, pull out the old type fuse holders, remove the cover over the fuse holder, replace with the new cover supplied (different colours for different ratings) then plug in the MCB. Switch on and job done! Just ensure that the correct rated MCB replaces each fuse.
No more fiddling about replacing fuse wire in the holder. The only drawback, if you can call it one, is that if a bulb blows the MCB MAY trip out, but we can live with that for the additional safety. "
