Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 2 way Pull switch Bought as replacement for cheaper pull-cord switch that jammed. Easy to fit and wire up. The only thing to look out for is that the earth connection is on the back plate and if you position the L1/L2 connections so they align it can make contact, tripping out the circuit. Solution is to rotate 180 degrees and then there is no risk of contact as the permanent live connection is in a different position. Overall seems sturdy and well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bathroom pull cord switch Bought to replace a switch that only lasted 3 years. This one was an easy fit and with a 25 year warranty got to be worth a go. Time will tell if it lasts that long.Good price and a doddle to fit.

Is this a one-way switch or a two way. the fitting says 2 way but is sold as a 1 way?

Asked by: cliff99
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Due to economies of scale all of the BG Electrical 1 way ceiling pull switches actually use the workings for the 2 way version.
