Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 2 weeks To reflect a previous review; very difficult to fit without removing a lot of material. Dimmer failed after 2 weeks - only fitted another as it was a match for the rest (which were marginally less difficult to fit. Seriously, don't even try if you have shallow knock outs. Gave 1 star for performance, as 0 not an option.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly designed This dimmer works however, I would never fit these again. The back plate of the dimmer has a square shape that is meant to fit perfectly within a backing box so that the fittings is level. This creates two major problems - firstly it does not allow for any correction in alignment of the fitting. Secondly and this is the far bigger problem, this "frame" is as wide as a standard backing box preventling the dimmer module for being inserted. I have had to cut sections off the plastic dimmer fitting to get in in place. As a professional electrician it took me 35 minutes to install one of these. DO NOT BUY. Also the rest of the range is slighyly oversized. So if you buy a dual accessory backing box, you will find the fittings overlap. I repeat - DO NOT BUY.

Answer: 
Hi QuickQ, This dimmer is not suitable for use with dimmable LED lamps. However, the Varilight LED Dimmer (Screwfix Product Code 6522F) is similar and can be used with dimmable LEDs.
