Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job for the money Easy to install, looks clean and neat. I like that the screws are hidden behind little blanking plates. . End of the day, it's a cheap light switch, can't complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid 2 Gang switch. This replaced the original, builder's 2 Gang Switch. First thing: Switched off the mains at the PCB. Tools for the job: latex gloves, electrical screw driver, box of minature screwdrivers, narrow nosed pliers, head torch, pencil and plain sketch pad. Having unscrewed the long screws of the old switch and pulled it out slightly from the wall, I first made a rough sketch of where all the wires went and their colours . This was the old system (circa 1991) = red - live, black/blue -neutral, yellow - earth. ( The new wiring is brown - live, blue - neutral, yellow/green - earth). On deconstructing the original I found the contact spring for one rocker switch had broken. This meant the copper contacts inside the switch itself did not make a good electrical connection so the only solution was a whole new two gang switch. I carefully fitted the new switch making sure all the tiny slotted screws were tight but not over tight and held the right wires in the right slots! then refitted the unit into the wall with the supplied long screws. It now works efficiently with no light flickering. A good value, well made product with handy extras - long screws for the unit+ cover caps.

I'm replacing a 2 gang 2 way light switch with a new LAP switch. However I notice that there are no COM terminals marked on the LAP switch - instead it has terminals marked L (in addition to L1 and L2). Is the L terminal effectively the COM terminal?

Asked by: Nigel1959xy
Hello Nigel1959xy, COM on older light switches means common which is now the Live wire. Thank you for using Q&A (CW)

Does switch need to be earthed?

Why are, what appear to be, earthing screws on this product. Provide metal back box earthed then surely no need for earth to switch. Is it just because innards are common across range as range includes metal finish switches as well.
Asked by: 9411john
The innards are common, but also you might be mounting it on a surface mounted box, or using a plastic back box in a stud partition wall. In most cases, I will earth to the switch, whether the back box has somewhere to earth to or not.

Is this a class 2 (double insulated) light switch, suitable for connection to a non earthed circuit?

Asked by: Jodi86
Hello Jodi86, I can confirm this product requires an earth. I hope this is useful. Thank you for using Q and A.JB
