Rated 5 out of 5Â by SteveNottm No problems
No problems with these so far. Very square design - use BG pattresses or similar to match - screw terminals accessed from top and bottom. No earth terminal; doesn't need one itself, of course - but it would be nice if manufacturers provided this as you will need to provide continuity of the CPC using a terminal block or alternative connector (if you're not using the earthing terminal of a metal back box or similar).

I installed an extractor fan into my bathroom and needed an Isolator switch. This one seemed like a decent switch for the price and looks decent too. I installed it and found it to wire with ease with decent termination points. Works well and does exactly what I want it to do.

As pointed out in a previous review the terminals of these switches and other BG switches are wider than the diameter of the screw and as a consequence some care is required to make sure that the conductor is beneath the screw when tightening otherwise it will ride up the side of the screw.

DO NOT BUY THIS SWITCH! This switch does not work. Looks fine and I only bought it because the MK one was not in store. I had even read another review where another one was returned as faulty!
Thankfully I tested it for continuity before fitting:
L2-L2 Open Circuit regardless of Switch position
I managed to get a closed circuit on L2-L2 once or twice!
Screwfix should immediately withdraw this item from sale!
I now have a 30mile round trip to return it and the day I took off work to carry out the work is lost!
