Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick to fit I didnt even relasie that these products existed until a friend mentioned them. Changed 5 rewireable fuses into MCB's in a matter of less than 10 minutes. Very easy to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal old fuse board upgrade Got an old fuseboard and don't want to have a full new consumr r unit installed, then this is the next best thing. Ideally you want RCD protection but if that is not possible for your current situation then these are much better than old fuses. Easy to fit. Isolate fuse board by the main switch. Pull out the fuse, unscrew the fuse holder, insert and screw in the MCB holder, insert MCB. Reenergize. Done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WYLEX 32A SP Type B Curve MCB These are a great buy. Easy to install (need a small flat screwdriver). They are color coded to match the amp rating with the color related to the one you currently have. In your old fuse box, the fuses are stamped with the rating on the front face. Note: switch off the electric at the mains unscrew the finger bolt holding a surround plate around the fuses Pull out the old fuse take the screwdriver & remove the color coded alignment plate put in the new one put the surround back switch on the breaker by pushing up Switch on the main. Took me 10 min to do all 6

Are these easy to fit to replace old fuse wire type?

Asked by: Kaiser55
I am a DIYer so if your in any doubt get a qualified electrician. if your confident you must shut the main power supply off first and then test that there is no power going to the fuses. Pull out the old fuse. Unscrew the old backing plate and replace with the new backing plate simply screw in place of the original one. Once secured fit new fuse. reset the main fuse board and you will now have an easy to reset fuse. The neighbour who is 80yrs old didn't want the fuss of a new style consumer unit...in the long run it would be cheaper.

We cannot advise - you would need to speak to qualified electrician.
