Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable, switch often fails Whilst the curved face looks a bit more modern and the price is comparatively good, the internal mechanics of the switch are poor. The number of light fittings by MK I've had to replace on this build alone is ridiculous. Once screwed to the wall, the switch doesn't "release" and turn the light on. You can operate it back and forth and nothing happens: unscrew from the wall a little and then you can hear two clicks from the switch as it operates, and then it operates as should. Avoiding MK products from now on, British General make good solid quality pieces. Spend a little more and get much more quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. I always use MK in preference to other makes because of reliability as well as style, bulk savings are an added bonus.

Does anybody know any ways to hide the screws on the faceplates? I have seen some other brands have little white caps to cover the screws and looking for this MK option.

Hope someone has a suggestion!

Hello JohnSmithJunior,

With regards to this particular product, unfortunately these do not come with covers in order to hide the screws.

Hope this helps.

We got this switch and wired it up but there is nowhere for the earth on the switch cable to go. The previous switch also didn't have anywhere, and it seemed the last person just put some green/yellow sheath around the earth and tucked it back up out of the way. is this ok?!
Thanks!

Answer: 
Hello Sarahl,

The earth conductor (CPC) should be terminated to the earth terminal in the back box.

Although we would recommend seeking professional help.

I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Assume you are using this switch as an intermediate on a 2 or 3 way switch.
It is best to use a small plastic connector in the back of the plate to keep earth separated.
There should be another earth wire entering the box (supply). Using a plastic connector join the earth wires together on one side of the connector box and the red wires (old colours) to the other (separated) side of the plastic connector.

securing wires

i must be having a bad day, but i can't see how to secure the wires to the switch.
the grub screws are very short.
normally i would expect to see longer screws which screw down and secure the wires to the base of the hole where they are inserted.
on this, the 'holes' are beneath where the screws are located, but teh screws are too small to pinch them.

Answer: 
Basically the screws are provided at the maximum out position. The only way to screw them is in. The screws should be long enough, but the initial push to get them going takes a bit of effort.
