"Easy to fit, works well and very reliable. Takes 10mm cable without problems. Only SLIGHT niggle is that screws to fix cable are at an angle so if you fit too close to wall you cannot get a straight screwdriver in to tighten them.."

Solid shower switch
24 Dec 2012
By Poleman
, Christchurch
"Seems much more robust than the cheap (half the price) switch it replaced (also from Screwfix). That one lasted under 4 months (to be fair, Screwfix gave me a full refund). The switch mechanism is so much more positive. Very easy to fit. Only gave it 3 stars for reliability as it's too early to tell but I'm hoping it'll last a lot longer than 4 months."

"If you're using 10mm cable for a 9.5kW+ shower this is by far the easiest to fit. Best way is to terminate the cable into the fitting, then screw it to the ceiling so there's a bit of spare cable in the void/attic, though it's wise to plasterboard plug first."

"Best 50A pull switch available and Screwfix's price is competitive.
Can't face fighting with a square pull switch and back box when using 10mm cable..."

Functional design
28 Jun 2011
By Richelec
, Bedfordshire
"When using 10mm cable these are, by far, the most practical and safe switches to use.
(With the square ones, there is not enough room to dress the cables and fix the switch to the pattress without using excessive forces which will lead to strain on the terminals and damage to the insulation). These allow the cable to be dressed tidily within the switch housing and make termination so much easier. Of the 30+ fitted over the last 5 years only one was faulty and none have gone wrong after fitting.

It's Huge !!!

By CC120

"High quality dp switch, but watch out it's huge.
It is about 10cm to 15 cm square (Round).
But was easy to use and plenty of space for 10mm2 cable.
