Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRITISH GENERAL 2 way rocker I have recently purchased this item for a back light box, it is located on the side of the box where I needed to make a small recess for the wiring at the back, it came with clear instructions, 4 caps to cover the retaining screws once fitted (2 of these caps are spares as it only needs 2), it is a slim line unit with gently curved edges, the switch itself when operated feels sturdy and well manufactured, all round 5 star rating from myself, really good product.

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).

Does this need a backing plate or can it be fixed direct flush to a wooden wall?

Asked by: PaulD13
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. We would normally advise using a back box on any switch installation to ensure that the switch is solidly attached in position and any cabling correctly contained.
