Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limited Space Great little switch, and it's British made solid construction, you can tell the difference will buy BG products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect switch for tight spot Perfect switch for a tight spot. Had to go in a gap to small for a normal switch between two doors. Just remember the back box doesn’t come with it so you need to order this separate. Reliable and strong enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for money Pleased with this, does what it was bought to do. Value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tighten all Terminals I bought this to replace an existing BG architrave switch that was buzzing occasionally and causing the LED lamp to flicker. Rather than bin the old one, I took it apart for repair as a future spare. I discovered that the contacts to all three terminals were only made secure if each of the grub screws was fully tightened. I had been using the switch as one-way using the L1 and COM terminals. The L2 terminal hadn't been fully tightened and that was subject to arcing. So, before you replace the switch, or on initial installation, check all terminals are tight. Otherwise it's a neat little switch and great value.

I want to mount this switch flush between two doorways onto a stud wall. Will I have to mount this on a metal back box attached to an inserted wooden noggin as there does not appear to be a dry lining back box for it?

Asked by: Glockinspeil
Hi Glockinspeil, Architrave switches were originally designed to sit on or in the moulding around door openings to avoid them being in plaster, so steel knock-out boxes and surface pattresses are the normal boxes produced for them.

Is this a direct replacement for a standard household light switch?

Asked by: Stevie777
Yes its just not as wide and it will fit a standard sunken back box not a wall mount box as obviously not wide enough.

clarify

in the read up you describe this switch as 2way. the photo clearly shows the back as 1way. which is it please ?
Asked by: stubro
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As you have correctly identified, the description for this British General 1-Gang 2-Way 10AX Architrave Narrow Light Switch White is incorrect as it is only 1 way (the pictures are correct).
