Great budget ceiling switch
15 Apr 2015
By Briman
, 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.

" 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 "

Its a pull switch
9 Mar 2015
By diyer58
, Market Harborough
" Used this to replace a broken switch that the chord had come out of.
A slightly different style in that the switch itself screws to a back box rather than the switch screwing directly to the ceiling with a cover plate.
Only disadvantage I can see is if you had fairly short wires I could be a struggle.
I works and is cheap, what more can I say?
