" Seems a quality item with the switch giving a solid click. Slightly different to fit than others I have done and needs thought on which way to orient and routing of wires. "

" initially wanted a like for like mk switch, but these were out of stock.
this one was only about 3mm larger so was perfect for the job. and seeing as it was slightly larger it covered where i had to remove the old one, leaving no sign of repair.
i will use this make again and for sure will keep a couple of both types in my van "

24 hours and it failed
11 Aug 2014
By PeterBM

" Shame really. It looks a really good ceiling light pull switch. However after a days use the switch stuck in the off positions and I had to take it apart to reseat the small spring. Hopefully the failure was the result of an over-enthusiastic pull.
Why didn't I take the unit back for exchange? It would have taken far more time to do that then just fix the problem.
"
