Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Nice piece of kit. Sleek and modern design. Adequate space at terminals for connections, well designed. Nice feel to switch movement and good LED visability. Great features (high water resistantance) IP66 and LED for impressive value. All in all would highly recommend and have used on a number of jobs for happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In-line water pump Isolator Small, compact waterproof on/off switch for localised control of a portable external water pump - ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality External Switch This is a quality product. One point that I have not seen mentioned in other reviews is that the 4 cover retaining screws are of the self retaining type. Very useful if being fitted externaly over grass or crazy paving where a dropped or fumbled screw would be almost impossible to find. The neon is easily disconnected or removed if not needed or it " misbehaves ".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just right for dark areas great weatherproof lightswitch. The neon light took some time to work out how to get it operating the way i wanted on a 2 way switch, but it now does the job to help find the switch in the dark

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good switch - but not for LEDs These are great quality. Small and compact and appear well weatherproofed. However, be aware that as these have a neon indicator light when switched off then if you use them to switch LEDs then the induced current will be sufficient to make the light glow constantly. This was a deal breaker for me as it was used as a light switch to a shed and it made the LED light shine sufficient to light up the shed at night! Apparently this is a well known issue with LEDs as they requie so little power. Thought I'd mention it as it might save someone else an afternoon of fault finding! I changed to a standard switch without a neon indicator and it worked fine. These were returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great switch but Great switch good value for money but be careful if you use an led lamp as thebuilt in led indicator in the switch can cause the lamp to flash as the led is on when the switch is off so if this happens disconnect the led

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality switch Bought to replace an MK weatherproof switch that had started to perish (after about 20 years). Not used BG stuff before and was a little wary of the quality, but this is a really well made switch, with quality fittings and components. A worthy replacement for the modern MK part which is almost twice the price.
