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.

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).
