Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Switch Good Quality switch and easy to install, looks smart with the screw covers (included). Also the switch doesnt feel cheap and sticky like the other cheap switches. Makes a huge difference replacing my old 1980s MK switch downstairs hallway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy fit 2 way light switch In store and very good price for starters! fitted easily and liked the white studs to cover screw fittings . Switches moved easily and were not stiff as some switched can be. Would buy it again!

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
