Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good switches BUT!!!!! I bought these switches to finish of my decorating project.. look great when up easy to fit (when you know electrics as some are differently wired to what you had previously) the only downside is I needed a 2 gang intermediate switch and unfortunately LAP do not do one in this range they do single intermediate 3 and 4 gang intermediate switches but not 2 gang.. they don’t even do a face plate so I could build 1...really need LAP or screw fix to come up with a solution ASAP as I have 2 switches that look out of place

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and good value Love this range of switches/sockets. Love the finish of brushed nickel and hate seeing screws so the fact they’re hidden behind the face plate is brilliant. Being an electrician I know these style of switches/sockets don’t normally fit well into 25mm boxes but these do. Easy to install.

The spec for this product states it needs a minimum 25mm back box. Does that mean it would fit a 35mm back box?

Asked by: LeeUzi
Hello, Yes, you could definitely use a 35mm backbox. In fact its probably better to use a 35mm backbox as it can be a tight squeeze to fit without a spacer or if you have thick cables. Thanks for using Q&A. [DG]

The face plate won't stay on

How does the face plate clip on? It just slides off....
Asked by: Jojo62
Hi Jojo62, Unfortunately Screwfix is unable to offer installation advice other than that contained in the manufacturer’s instructions. We would also recommend contacting a suitably qualified tradesperson for advice. As far as we are aware, the faceplate has a clip-off / clip-on function. Once the faceplate has be carefully prised off, the switch is then wired up and screwed back into the back box. When the faceplate has been lined up with the switch, it should just require a firm push to clip it back into place. Thank you for using Q&A. PB
