There are cheaper brands
4 May 2016
By
, Deepest Somerset
" There are indeed cheaper brands but this does the job and it does it very well.
Very nicely made, easy to use and with all the screw covers it looks great when fitted. You can slap the switch which makes a great positive sound and action, worth spending the money.

" Great product, requires some sealant around conduit entry to maintain ingress protection rating and would be handy if the indicator light stayed on for both switches "

Best value for money!
10 Mar 2015
By
, Cumbria
" Who needs the expensive mk switch when you can fit these?
They are more asthetically pleasing and allot easier to fit.
As a electrician I would highly recommend these and I've also fitted the 1gang ones which are just as good! "

Good quality switch
13 Nov 2014
By
, Wales
" I have fitted quite a few of these switches and they are good quality and value for the money. I experienced my first failure last week when I had a call back from a customer and it turned out that their switch had let water in during heavy rain. When I got a replacement from Screwfix the new one had a redesigned seal. The back box and switch plate on the two different types are not interchangeable. The old type has a visible black seal between back box and switch plate (as in the photo above) but the newer design has a seal built into the switch plate which is not visible when assembled. Make sure you apply plenty of clear silicone sealant to the rear of the back box before fitting it to the wall to prevent moisture getting in through the screw (and any cable) holes. "

sockets excellent, these poor?
15 Jun 2016
By
, Stockport
" BG IP66 sockets are excellent, sadly these switches are less so.
Main problem is a lack of a positive mechanical switching action - they are just way too soft in operation.
Also the 2 gang switch should have 2 indicator lights, not just 1.
The things they share with the sockets etc, eg the box design is still excellent of course. I will continue to use them in combination with the sockets but could not recommend as a stand alone item.

Good looking switch
29 Jul 2015
By
, Didcot
" Although this switch looks the part, one thing I would have liked to have seen is a rubber ring seal that can be mounted when using the centre hole. Other than that I have just pumped sealant into it and drill the water excess hole out at the bottom just in case. "

Poor socket - broke during fit
6 Jun 2011
By
, Barry
" I installed this socket and when I went to undo the unit to check wiring the socket popped on one of the joints and the threads broke making it unusable as a weather proof box. Subsequently bought equivalent MK masterseal unit which is much stronger and am happy with it. "
