Rated 1 out of 5 by It broke I usually buy BG stuff, but this one broke straight away. Wouldn't allow power through. 5 Dec 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job For the price it was middle ground but fit easy enough. Nice satisfying click when operated. reliability time will tell 7 Jul 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by does the job Hello, If this is a replacement check which side you need feed and load in case your cable is too short to swap around. This one has feed on the top as picture, not all switches on the site have this information, e.g. the LAP one is other way round. This isn't a fault of the switch, just annoying that only some pictures have the back. As for the switch, this is well built, sturdy and the led is brighter than it's size suggests. Far better than the nearly priced LAP which is pretty poor quality and I'm glad I swapped it. No idea about reliability as it's only been in a day. If you're thinking of paying the extra for the Crabtree ones, note that screwfix do not stock them, you have to order them in. Why they don't state this I don't know. 30 Jun 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value switch I bought this switch as a replacement as the one that was fitted didn't work due to an earthing issue. Got the switch replaced and this one works great, nice switching action. As for features I can't really say much as a switch is a switch. I can't say for reliability as It hasn't been installed long. 3 May 2015

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
We would normally advise mounting any 45A switch to a 47mm deep box or deeper, but this is more about the turning radius of the cables used for the installation rather than the product itself, so a 35mm deep box may be suitable for some installations.
