This came in a well packed cylinder tube, the controls on the top are easy to read and understand, The two terminals are easy to get to and the grub screws are just right. The unit itself was to replace an aging Thermostat and once power was switched on has run silently and faultless.
In my opinion any one who has a basic knowledge of house hold electrics (which is live and which is neutral) then you can do this job.

Excellent piece of kit, fitted a number of these units, a pleasure to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Roy22 Excellent unit
An excellent unit supplied in a stout cardboard tube, the perfect length to replace an old 18â unit. The probe end was about 0.3mm thinner than the original 5/16â (7.9mm) imperial thermostat, probably to ease insertion.
The plastic head unit was slightly smaller than the original, so an easy fit. The only downside is the lack of any temperature scale markings, instead 7 graduations spread from 'â' to '+'. Initially setting mine to 2 divisions below max (+) gave 50 degrees C. One division below max gave a more sensible 60 C.
As others have said, Screwfixâs wide opening hours are a boon if you need to remove the old thermostat to identify its length before heading off for a replacement the same day.

I replaced one of these as old one had become faulty. Seemed to work fine, it does have a screw dial with numbers indicating temperature so it can be set at the 65 degree normal temp
