Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good switch Good quality switch for the price. I bought this to control a barrier, so much petter to have just the word "Press" rather than the dearer switch that has the ledgend" press to exit" You will be hard pressed to find such a good purchase at this price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total rubbish I bought 5 of these for my garage doors and entry gate. The 2 that I have fitted have caused me so much grief. Firstly, the press spring seems to stick. You press and you have to assist it to return. Then we noticed that my garage door would open of it's own accord. We would wake up to find the door wide open. It only came to me that the issue could be the PRESS switch when my wife said she couldn't open the garage door at all via remote control or the house press switch (which is a proper one) that I realised that the new PRESS switch that I fitted in the garage was not fully depressed and was making contact. Once it returned it to it's "OFF" position, the door operated again. Total rubbish. DON'T BUY. I shall be returning these to Screwfix. But I will buy a proper replacement and this time it will be a well known brand of quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Press to open switch I have used theses switches on a number of electronic doors to release / open. Good quality switch for the price. You will be hard pressed to find such a good purchase at this price.

Can this item be wired as Normally Open and Normally Closed like the Crabtree Version?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. No, this retractive switch has only a Normally Open output terminal so cannot be wired in any other way.
