Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCB or new consumer unit These MCBs are a quick and effective way of updating an old fuse box. Easy to install and easy to use. No more fuse wire, just a flick of a switch to restore a circuit. Just a little bit on the expensive side when compared to a standard MCB.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than wire! This is a great way to quickly upgrade your traditional classic fuse box. I replaced 3 at the moment & intend to replace some more. Very easy to fit obviously taking great care & carrying it out safely. One thing to be aware of is the possibility that your cover may not go back on after fitting. Depends on your box. In principle it's ok and safe provided the box was safe in the first place, position etc. Ideally you really want to be able to fit the cover. In my case I couldn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement fuses I recently replaced all of my old consumer wired fuses with the Wylex SP Type B Curved MCB's. They were so easy to fit that I had replaced all of the fuses within about 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wylex Plug in MCB Up grading a domestic panel that customer didn't want a new consumer unit at this moment. After the fuse wire blowing for ring main and them sitting all day with no power and they didn't know how to replace the wire I recommended these MCB's as a solution. Only minutes to fit each one and now they can reset them in seconds should one ever trip, no more sitting with no lecky till I can attend. Wylex reliability and good price what more can I say.

socket into board

i think i need to get one of these to replace my 5amp wired fuse which when it trips goes with a bang.

question is the socket that plugs into the board can i leave the old one in there and use the existing socket into the new ?

just a bit wary of turning of the power then tampering with the board

Answer: 
It is necessary to change the coloured base in the consumer unit for the white base that comes with this MCB’s. The MCB will then fit.
All work must be carried out by a qualified competent person, in accordance with BS7671 2008 17th Edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations and all other regulations, e.g. Building Regulations
