MK 50A Pull Cord Switch with Neon
Just purchased my second one as the first one gave up after a year . The neon light never worked , 8 months and i had to pull it four times to come on then the switch locked completely . It seems well made and hopefully this one will last longer and the first one was just a blip . So far so good .

MK UK! - made in malaysia.
Have always bought MK products as, whilst more expensive, they HAD a reputation for reliability.
I bought 2 of these today, 1 as a spare, Fitted the other one. Neon light didn't work, and after 3-4 pulls the switch mechanism failed. Fitted the spare one, the neon didn't work on that one either. Had to rush off, at my expense, and purchase another brand which worked perfectly.
I spoke to a professional electrician who felt that MK's reputation in the trade had been diminishing alot lately.
I'll be returning both of them to screwfix for a refund and wont be using MK products any more.
If you want a reliable product try another brand.

MK 50A shower pull cord.
In the last 12mths I have fitted 3 of these from other brands so this time I decided to spend a bit more. And it is a trusted brand name. I have gave a 1 star rating for the reliability as its only been used a few times and only time will tell.
