Brilliant lamp
10 Dec 2014
By
, Devon
" Plenty of room for a large LED or long life bulb.
Push-fit connection no good for more than one cable.
Comes with grommet but instructions online says it doesn't.

Cheap and durable
3 Mar 2012
By
, London
" I've had a couple of these at the back of my house for a few months now. They're cheap, look like they'll last a good few years, and they take standard screw-cap bulbs, so I've put 5w CFL bulbs in making them super-cheap to run, but bright enough to dispel the shadows. "

No side entry points
12 Feb 2016
By
, Leicester
" Only has a rear entry conduit point but plenty of room for drilling your own in the sides.
Has a very usefull lamp holder connection which is not only push in but has holes for two wires in each terminal and therefore ideal when linking (daisy-chaining) fittings. "

" Yes easy to fit wire and a good light and although people are moving to led lights its no big deal to fit an led lamp. So even with the combined cost it is good value "

unimpeded light output, smart
11 Dec 2014

" easy to fit BUT I prefer screw terminals to these push fit things which won't come out again if you need to rearrange the cable. White model on the ceiling just blends in, the prismatic clear cover lets all the light out "

" A good light that accepts a spiral low power bulb, and even so has a wide spread of light. An added bonus is that it's "Made in England." "

See the light
28 May 2011
By
, Dorset
" The picture shows it all. For a plain simple cheap light you can't beat the value. Electrical connections require a stiff wire to push into the bulb holder, no screws. Easy with cable but not too bad with flex. "

Oh dear such a shame
8 May 2016
By
, Deepest Somerset
" I brought a couple off these for a job, they are really good apart from on thing that's frustrating, time consuming but easily avoidable if the 'made in England, quality control that stuck his stamp in it had done his job.
On all my units that I fitted you could not loop in and out because one of the cable entrys, there are two phase and two neutral, is blocked by the bracket holding the lamp holder, you have to remove the bracket then the lamp holder, turn it about 5 degrees then tighten it up so all 4 terminals are acessable, what a faff and waste of time that otherwise would be a good unit.
Come on QA made start looking at it from and electricians point of view!!!

Cheap hence tricky to fit!
3 Jan 2016
By
, Birmingham
" One of the cheapest bulkhead lights around suitable for exterior fitting - perhaps not surprising fitting is not that easy. The push-fit is tricky without good lighting (and a magnifying glass!) and refitting the reflector and lamp holder challenging in that the screw holes are hidden by what you are trying to attach! Instructions could be clearer considering it claims to be made in the UK. "

Poor relative to other ASD pro
27 Jul 2012
By
, Grantham
" Whilst working on a refurb I had bought 2 similar ASD lights from another electrical wholesaler, I needed 2 more & saw these on the screwfix website but much cheaper!! I now know why. They are very basic & you have to build then yourselves, trying to get the lamp holder in place then get the wires in was a right game. Ok you pay what you get for but it clearly state "self assemble required" "

" difficult to unpack. supposedly for outdoor use,but rubber grommet not supplied,supposedly easy to install, but most of the items required for this are not supplied, and to top it all no bulb, so glad that the assistant pointed this out to me before driving 10 miles back home. NOT HAPPY. "
