Great Outdoor Lightswitch
5 Feb 2015
By Astromaster
, Eastbourne
" I bought this to replace an existing switch that had succumbed to water ingress. It has included push-on rubber seals to put over the wall fixing screws, a variety of positions of easy knock-out holes for cable entry and little push-on caps to cover the box screws as well. What I particularly like is the little red light above the switch plate that can be configured in a variety of ways, by default it will show up when the light is off (to locate in the dark). It has a very positive action, not like my previous one that felt really woolly and had to check all the time if it had worked. Product recommended. (For added water resistance, I used an outdoor sealant around the holes through the box). "

" Easy to install. Good IP66 features, which are important for outside use, when compared with IP55. Case needs some cutting or drilling, depending on the application. "

" no complaints at all, especially when you consider the MK alternative at over twice the price. its almost identical. you can go slightly cheaper, but I wouldn't trust some of the other makes i've seen used. This is a great, solid, well made product at a decent price. "

" I know some experts will probably slate me for this but the instructions and pictures should be more clear for a DIY man like myself. It took me a while to figure how to wire it so the neon light stays on but I got it in the end. Don't be put off its probably just an inexperienced DIY,ER like me who needs to read the instructions more than once. Normally wiring a light switch is very easy.
Reliability only 3 stars as had only a week.

A switch is a switch
5 Sep 2014
By Fenrir
, Wakefield
" It does it's job alright. Just seems to be a bit soft as far as the switch action goes. No real feel to it more of a rocker than a positive switch. 3 stars for reliability may seem a bit mean but I have no real way of telling as it's just been fitted. "

A good product
17 Jul 2014
By Bulwark70
, Merthyr tydfil
" Purchased two of these to fit with outside PIR lights. They appear to be waterproof and don't look out of place on the wall. The connections are a little bit fiddly especially altering the neon to the switch mode and using the single terminal block for the neutral supply. This terminal could be a bit larger and easier to connect to. Overall though a good product at a reasonable price. "

Beware the neon
1 Jul 2014
By wotsit123
, Yorkshire
" For use without a neutral lead, beware the way the neon is wired. I found that the live-switched lead shows 120V when switched off!
The only way round this I found was to disconnect the neon. "

Great switch - BUT......
24 Jun 2013
By CAIRNX
, guildford
" Very simple to fit - BUT .... There is no mention in the instructions to the effect that if you remove one of the blanking plugs for the access point for the wiring, you will need to purchase an additional gasket to seal around the wire as they don`t include one in the pack!!. Spent ages thinking there was something missing and finally called the technical helpline.
Suggest they put something in the instructions to make it clear. "
