Good product

"Couldn't find a cheaper version of this product. There is a cord outlet just below the fuse - not visible in the pic. It's a solid item and works well when installed. Worth the extra cash."

Neat and tidy replacement
5 Oct 2013
By Tomaid
, South London
"This was bought to replace a similar switch that was 27 years old. A job that I had been putting off for years. It was in a hallway and very visible and I wanted it to look smart. This has done that very well and the switch is firm with a clear light."

Good switch

By Sparky1969

"Solid MK quality. Unfortunately, as any electrician who actually tests an installation will tell you, neon indicators are a pain in the backside. Unless you actually NEED a neon, then for the sake of anyone who has to do the testing, get the unit without one."

"One of the cheaper MK branded spurs but its MK quality so rock solid and wont fail for years!
The usual fiddily fuse holder is a pain - maybe MK will update this in time..

Works fine but two niggles
28 Nov 2010
By Simon2010
, Basingstoke
"I bought some of these to replace various ones in the kitchen. Some are next to sockets from the same MK range and the main problem is that the faceplate on this one is MUCH thicker than that of the sockets. Therefore they match in "style" i.e. the top curved edge, but the FCUs stick out a few mm in front of the sockets. They would be fine if mounted somewhere on their own but not recommended for putting next to a socket.
I think I can see what causes this - these include an optional flex outlet in the bottom edge (with a supplied blanking plate that fits very neatly). To fit in this flex outlet they have had to make the whole thing thicker than it would otherwise need to be.
The other issue is with the fuseholder. It takes a bit of guesswork to decide just how hard to pull on them while turning the screw anticlockwise. Seems like just turning the screw should make the fuseholder pop out but it doesn't and it seems that a pull on the edges of the holder is needed. If you are tempted to slip another screwdriver in and give it a little prise I think the fuseholder would then snap."

"after doing up the 4th of 6 screws, the screw head slot broke. Useless. Didn't even bother to take it back was so disappointed."
