replace dimmer switch
Well made strong tough and good chrome.
Easy fit good instructions if needed. I had to shorted the screws to fit but this is good and better than too short screws.

LAP Chrome socket installation
I replaced 5 old brass plated sockets with modern looking lap units.They were easy to install,only thing a little diffrent wase the live & neutral terminals where on a diffrent side to the existing units.I moved the wires over & job was done.The screws where long enough also.Now installed they look very modern!

The case is a nice heavy piece of chrome. The finish is very good although by comparison the fixing screws seem cheap quality. Very easy to fit but do check the depth of your enclosures as the wires exit straight through the back rather than from the bottom you may need to bend them sharply to get the dimmer to fit fit closely to the wall. Wiring is straight forward with clear instructions. Once connected the switch push action is positive and the dimmer function very smooth. A nice feature is being able to set the dimmer level where you want it then just push it for on/off. This dimmer has a small adjuster in the back to balance sensitive bulbs, but using it with about 150W Of halogen bulbs it worked perfectly straight from the box. It does buzz a little but it isn't loud enough to be an annoyance. All in all it's a good dimmer at a good price, I'll certainly buy more of them in the future.
