very easy to fit
6 Jul 2016

" I don't like the appearance of the mounting screws, the type with screw cap looks better but these are very easy to fit and seem reliable. centre cable entry might not suit all replacement jobs. Would recommend "like for like" "

" Bought as a replacement, mounting holes aligned with old one. Job done in 15 mins. Smooth, does not feel like it is snagging when pulled like some other pull switches. "

A happy Grandpa!
25 May 2016
By
, Ross-on-Wye
" I particularly liked the connection unit. It looks as though dust and debris falling in through the knock-out, and eventually finding its way into the switch mechanism, won't be a problem.
A pleasant 'click' when used that doesn't requite a hefty tug. Grandpa is delighted!

Replacement made easy
6 Jan 2016

" Bought to replace an old switch that had failed. Fortunately the switch was a direct replacement, so the part attached to the ceiling did not have to be changed.
Reliability given 3 stars as I have no data yet. "

" There is not much that you can write about a pull cord switch.That said, it is unwise to buy the cheapest, but that does not mean it is necessary to buy the most expensive. I fitted this one at a customers house to replace a cheaper variety that had been fitted by another tradesman and had failed after just a few months. Cheap is not cheap if you have to replace an item over and over again. "

Just what I needed
20 Nov 2015
By
, London
" Old switch broke couple days ago, light was on but could not switch it off. Simple solution: go to nearest Screwfix and buy new one. Its only on/off for light in the bathroom , so 1-way is enough. Easy to fix, works perfect. Small investment and the whole family is happy. "

Great budget ceiling switch
15 Apr 2015
By
, Bedfordshire
" Bought this to replace a unit from another DIY/garden store and it wins hands down. Sturdy, well constructed and has that re-assuring solid click.
Easy to install and can be used for 1 or 2 way circuits. Cable enters through central push out hole.
