Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my needs well I needed number of aesthetically compatible switches (1 and 2 gang) and twin 13A sockets, one with USB charging facilities. The switches needed to fit a 16mm back box and all must have plastic caps to cover the screws. I could only meet this requirement, from the Screwfix range, with the British General products and chose the 800 series for aesthetic reasons. One aesthetic criticism of the range is that the sockets with USB have 'outboard' switches whilst those without have 'inboard' - I would have preferred sockets with matching switches, either both inboard or both outboard. One point as an aside - The only reason I did not purchase the cheaper DP version is that it is not available for delivery. Having received the items I find that they appear of good quality and ideal for my application. Terminal screws operate easily (not always the case!) and the switches are positive without being difficult to operate. I see no reason why there should be any problem with installation. These items are not yet installed so I give benefit of doubt on performance and reliability - but these factors will not be known for quite a long time anyway!

Is there a Red colour to indicate it is on or is it written?

Asked by: spannerwales
Hi spannerwales, There are red inserts in the switch rockers which are revealed when in the On position.
