Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have read the reviews!! Bought this and paid more than wanted because I had heard lots of complaints about faulty dimming switches, Sadly the lights flicker better than my christmas tree. The look and feel are what I wanted superb!. Can't fault the replacement service though it was first class.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh Dear again From a small order this is the second item that doesn't work!!! Professionally installed, but of the 2 spotlights to which it was connected only one worked, the other glowed dimly!!! Changed the spots and checked connections but it turned out the unit was faulty - another item that is going to be returned!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliability less than expected I bought two of these about three years ago. Both have gone wrong (one dimmer on each). I bought another recently, but just used it for spares to repair the other two. The screwless front panel is neat and well made, but a bit tight with a 25mm box - I wouldn't like to try it with a 16mm box (I doubt it is possible for a double dimmer, despite what Crabtree claim). Other than that, it's a dimmer switch and it dims lights.

Is thus suitable for dimming led downlight. The wastage will be 40w on each dimmer

Asked by: Runtings
It may work with this dimmer as the minimum rating is 40 watts. However the ideal would be to purchase an actual LED Dimmer, this is a basic dimmer. Also the LED down light you are using will need to be specified as being able to be dimmed. Thank you for your interest in our Crabtree products.
