Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great narrow switch The switch is a great size as it is narrow but still easy to install and work with. The instructions take a little digesting as there are options for the LED light to be on to locate it or on when it’s being used. Not a major issue just skip toward the end to know which setup you need! Switch is sturdy and feels good quality when in use. The conduit plugs are easy to move (20mm) and fit a grommet easily enough. For the price can’t really argue for the switch. I have used two for outdoor lights connected to the main via a standard 3 pin plug without any issues

Is the included black rubber adaptor for use when 20mm PVC conduit is used from the top entry

The rubber adaptor does not seem to be a tight fit on to the conduit to stop ingress of water in the back box, should outdoor silicone be used on assembly. If so could you recommend which type
Asked by: Retsof
Hi Retsof, The mentioned gasket is intended for bottom entry installations to avoid wind-blown horizontal rain getting up into the box around a round conduit or flexible cable installed without conduit. For top entry it would realistically need to be replaced with a 20mm IP rated gland specific to the conduit being used as we have had no testing or certification work done around adding silicone sealant to the gasket.

I want to reposition an existing BG external waterproof switch - how do I get access?

Asked by: Essandee
Hi Essandee, There are 4 decorative discs at the 4 corners of the switch which are covering the screws which hold the front section tightly against the mounting box, carefully removing these discs will reveal standard screw heads compatible with either cross- or flat-headed screwdrivers.

Is this a single or double pole switch?

Just wondering is this switch breaks contact from both live and switch live conductors or just break one if the conductors. If so might keep LED lights glowing on the off position.
Asked by: EdMartins
Hi EdMartins, Every light switch works by breaking the connection between (permanent) Live and Switched Live, the other connection you are thinking of is Neutral which never goes anywhere near the workings of a light switch.

Do these come with any type of rubber seal or grommet, putting a 10mm cable into a 20mm hole isn't very waterproof. Thanks

Asked by: W4lty
Hi W4lty, As we can't know in advance whether an installation will be made through one of the side knockouts using conduit, SWA cable, flex, twin & Earth or the rear drill-out entry directly out of the wall it is installed on, so we do not wastefully pack multiple unnecessary options in the product instead leaving the correct item to be sourced separately.

Can you confirm the H x W x D dimensions please.

The width is the most important bit.
Asked by: Cheeseking
Hi Cheeseking, Our product data shows dimensions of:- 90 mm (tall) x 65 mm (deep) x 60mm (wide) [although cyclic tool wear between refreshes may cause a mil or two deviation from this occasionally).
