Â by DIYFixer1 Not very good
The dimmer switch fits well into the varilight grid switch system, however it does look a bit cheap as the Cap is right on the end of the switch stem so lots of it is visible. The unit is also very bulky and deep so fixing it to a 30mm metal box with more than two cables is near impossible without it popping out the plate. I have also noticed the unit rattles when gently shaken, my other dimmer unit does not do this. The colour is also not the same shade of white as the face plate. Not very happy with it so far.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by RayJMO Does Replace MK Grid Plus
Be aware that this dimmer requires a Varilight faceplate to fit. It is too small for the MK Grid Plus system.
Unable to rate the dimmer properly as I'm going to return it to Screwfix.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Harpo Modular clip-in use only
I notice that another reviewer has stated that this dimmer unit will not fit onto a faceplate if used as a direct lock nut style replacement.
Please be aware that this dimmer is modular, its meant to be used with a modular style clip-in faceplate, not on normal style locknut dimmer faceplate.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by ClooneyClone Design flaw - back to the shop
The thread around the spindle does not protrude far enough through a standard face plate to get a nut on. There must be less than one turn of thread available. I don't know how this design ever made it from the drawing board to the factory. (I did wonder why it was so cheap.) Screwfix were very good about refunding me though.
