Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same issues One side blue led failed to work, technical department stated that they had no answer take it back. 30 mile round trip to screwfix , replaced the unit only to find when you tightened the face plate the internal rubber on one of the face screws had collapsed and now the screw sits right into the unit unlike the other three.so it's going back when I get the will to start again ..not the best!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from switch broken Fitted and during flash continuity test I realised the on off function on one side was intermittent. Returned for replacement. Unit is nice with good movement but not good that this passed QC.

Once you pop out the cable entry, how do you seal the remaining void once the cable is inserted... Surely there should be a rubber gromit that assists with the weather proofing .... If not is a sealed unit with a big hole in the top.....not great for use

Or am I missing parts
Asked by: Captainparanoia
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Because the 20mm knock-outs can be used for a variety of different installation options, from conduit to Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) cabling and every option between, it has been left to the installer to determine what will be used and therefore what gland, flange, mounting kit etc. will be necessary to complete the installation, rather than increase the overall cost due to a number of expensive additional parts most of which will ultimately not be required.

Is this switch a double pole switch as i have to switch mains powered lighting which goes through a transformer and also does it come 2 gang if it is?

Asked by: Karl22
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This reel is rated for a maximum constant-current capacity of 10A, which means that as long as your mower consumes 2,300W or less then the reel will be suitable for use with it.

Help needed

I used this switch for some mains powered outside rope lights. I broke the live wire through the switch, but when the switch is in the off position the lights are on but very dim. Switching on then puts the lights on full. Any ideas please?
Asked by: Anonymous
Due to the provision of an indicator light on the switch, which comes pre-wired to activate when the switch is in the off position, there will be a constant small power flow which is lighting the indicator but also causing your fairly low powered rope lights to glow dimly. To avoid this you would need to either disconnect the indicator light completely or else move to a permanently on setup using a Neutral connection and the permanent Live feed going into the switch.
