British General 6A 1-Way Pull Cord Switch White is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily replaced failed unit I Replaced a failed switch with this unit and I was able to use the existing mounting which saved a bit of time. Overall seems lime a good item, obviously can't comment on reliability at this point in it's life cycle. Screwfix Amersham is a god send!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what was wanted The switch was cheap, easy to fit and served its purpose. Absolutely no problems. I have only marked it as good for reliability since I've only fitted it 2 nights ago but if it's like all of the other things I've bought from Screwfix it should last for ages..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money Brought as a replacement unit and fitted easily and quickly . Although I only needed a 1 way unit and it was advertised as a 1 way it actually has the fittings for a 2 way unit !! Plenty of cord that was easily adjustable to suit what ever length you need !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Siezed up after no time You'd think these things would last for ages, especially as this one is supposed to have a 25 year guarantee. Fitted one and it siezed up after a few months, fortunately with the light off. Looks like I'm not the only one, the reviews on the Crabtree alternative (63249) seem to indicate it's common for these BG ones to fail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 2 way Pull switch Bought as replacement for cheaper pull-cord switch that jammed. Easy to fit and wire up. The only thing to look out for is that the earth connection is on the back plate and if you position the L1/L2 connections so they align it can make contact, tripping out the circuit. Solution is to rotate 180 degrees and then there is no risk of contact as the permanent live connection is in a different position. Overall seems sturdy and well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bathroom pull cord switch Bought to replace a switch that only lasted 3 years. This one was an easy fit and with a 25 year warranty got to be worth a go. Time will tell if it lasts that long.Good price and a doddle to fit.
