Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than some I bought this to replace one from another brand also sold by Screwfix. I've used this other brand for years and have done three house rewires with their kit. Their shower pull switch however is difficult to install and less robust than this BG item. I broke the other one putting it in and it was useless trying to sort out 10mm cable. This BG item is robust, has well laid out terminals and is significantly cheaper than the other brand. Recommended. I'll certainly be trying other BG kit after this experience.

Hi can i also wire an extractor fan into this switch?

Asked by: mellie7
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As long as you do not try to run more than 45A (10,800W) through this British General 45A Pull Cord Switch White then there should be no problems with what actual devices are connected.

what minimum depth pattress? 30mm or 45mm?

Asked by: Donutt
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The workings of the switch barely protrude, so a 30mm box will be sufficient unless extra room is required for the cabling.

Does it matter if I fit a 45A or a 50A for my power shower pull switch

Asked by: Jen1
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The difference will be in the total power capacity, a 45A switch has a maximum capacity of 10,800W (10.8kW) at 240V while a 50A switch can cope with 12,000W (12kW) at the same voltage.

Neon light stays on when I switch off

Asked by: cbeebee
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The indicator light is connected directly to the LOAD Live and Neutral terminals, so for it to be on regardless of the switch state the wiring must have the mains feed on the LOAD terminals and the product load on the FEED terminals. To rectify this you would need to shut off power to the circuit then first swap over the two Live cables, then swap over the two Neutral cables, then restore power to the circuit and the indicator light will only be lit when the switch is in the ON state.
