Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is expected Bought this for my electrician to fit in my shed. Been installed for a couple of days and works as expected. It has a definite 'clunk' to the switch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Garden light extension Purchased this as part of equipment to extend garage lighting out onto the driveway. Should have purchased an outdoor box and switch but it was my mistake and couldn’t be bothered to take it back and exchange, mounted inside garage instead of outside. Works fine.

What's the problem with answering a simple question?

You say it needs a backbox, ie see ***********Requires 35mm Back Box****** yet the picture shows a backbox and back boxes don't seem to be available separately.
Asked by: Gluesox
Hello, This item comes with a surface mounting box already (this is the back box you see in the image). The back box being referred to in the description is a knockout back box (if you plan on recessing the switch into the wall). If you're planning on surface mounting, then you don't need to purchase a back box (as it comes with a surface mounting box already). If you do plan on recessing into the wall an ordinary 1 gang back box that is deeper than 25mm would suffice (typically it is better to get a slightly larger box than suggested, as if you have thicker cables you'll need a deeper box). For 1 gang metal knockout box for recessing the switch take a look at (52143) or (79195) Thanks for using Q&A. [DG]

Back box included or not?

The photo shows a back box, the questions mention a back box but the description says it requires a back box. Does this come with one please as I'm confused by the description.
Asked by: mrgrotey
Hi mrgrotey, Yes, the metal back box is included. I will ask for our website to be amended. Thanks for using Screwfix Q&A. JT

Is this suitable for outdoor use, weatherproof?

Asked by: adnan786458
Hello adnan786458, No, this is not suitable for outdoor use. We have the LAP IP66 10AX 1-Gang 2-Way Weatherproof Outdoor Switch (73955) which would be suitable for outdoors. Thank you for using Q&A SW

Does the back box have a double knock out on one side? Or are they all single knock outs?
