LAP Mechanical 24-Hour Immersion Timer 240V
THIRD time having to revisit for same customer. Won't Re-install this rubbish!!
Beside being unreliable, it really is tricky to install and just don't understand why these people use a design that makes it difficult to wire it up and then leave such a small amount of space for the cables to be clamped. The clamp points are too close to the terminal points making it tricky to wire up. In fact the best way to wire it up is not to screw it to the wall at first until you can get the cables terminated and screwed securely before fixing to the wall. It's probably the only way to ensure your cables are in and secure as you might think that the cables are properly terminated but have not gone in correctly.
Also the terminal points are not that deep and make for poor contacts.
This unit really should be better designed. Better variations on the market and I would suggest you look and pay a little more if you don't want to get called back by your customers thinking you are using cheap rubbish on their installation.....

Very good value
A great mechanical 24 hour timer. For the price its durable and easy to install. One great feature is the red LED indicator to show the customer that the immersion is on or off. Plus do not forget the 3 year manufacture guarantee!

If the correct size flex is used then it is very difficult to get 2 earth wires into the 1 small earth terminal.
Other manufacturers use larger terminals to accomadate this.
Otherwise product does what it says on box !
