"Used this to run lights off power circuit in my garage. Easy to wire and good value. Be aware you will need a hole saw and grommets to make the cable entries. Switch is operable through the cover. Cover clip could be more positive."

"overall for the price this isnt a bad outside switch but as others have said once the front has been opened it never clips back down again properly so defeats object of it being waterproof, one i fitted for a customer i had to change as i couldnt leave it like that, so my advice is buy a better one from the start"

Not bad for the price

"Cant complain at the price but the old saying is true of getting what you pay for, used this item as the job was to a cost normally would only touch MK Masterseal.
Back enclosure tends to flex when being fixed so not good on a slightly uneaven surface e.g bare brick outer wall.
Cover over switch fells like it could easily fall off over time.
Terminals on back of FCU where quite large and could easily acommodate large sizes of cable.

Great price, but it shows

"The plastic IP55 cover sticks to the switch rocker when the lid is down and prevents correct mechanical action of the switch. As a result the contacts burnt very quickly and remained fused on whatever the position of the switch. The load was neither heavy nor inductive. You get what you pay for, great value until you have to return to site to fix it. Screwfix promply replaced switch without argument. Sadly, the replacement had the same problem unless the cover was left open, which to quote the other reviewer took away the point of the IP55 feature. So, buy from screwfix, but something less cheap"

Cheap and poor

"The quality of this is not great. Slightest bit of pressure on the face plate screws and they sheared off. The switch itself actually did not work and there was a fault on the neutral. Poor quality hence the price, do not buy it, stick with MK !!!"
