LAP Mechanical 24-Hour Immersion Timer 240V
24 hr Emmersion Timer
Found it very easy to install and simple to use very good product.

Simple basic timer
This is the third, and possibly last install of the LAP timer, both previous ones have failed on the on-off microswitch inside the unit - for a immersion heater this part seems cheap and poorly specified for the job. Pity, as this is otherwise an easy to install unit with a simple and accurate timer.

Product is good value, easy to install, although securing two wires in the earthing terminal is a little tricky. Early days but seems to work fine. Easy to clock timer with tell tail light. Does the job.

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.....
