Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the job Used this for a low voltage supply to a child's outdoor playhouse. Does the job as expected. Of course the neon indicator doesn't work on low DC voltage, but you could replace it with a suitable LED if required - I did that on another similar switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tricky Neon Wiring As a DIYer I’ve wired a few switches, however not come across one like this where the wiring for the neon can be done in one of 3 ways. Don’t be put off by comments stating either not to use the neon or the switch had to be returned due to neon staying on while switch is off, my advice is read the wiring instructions on how to use the neon in way that you want it and then read them again! In layman’s the 3 options are: Neon is permanently on while connected to a power source. Neon is only on while the switch/light is on. Neon is only on while the switch/light is off (assist to find the switch in a dark area) The default set up is black wire neon to Comm & neon to choc block & then uses a “link” wire from a choc block to the 1 way terminal, which if left as is will supply a small amount of power on a permanent basis to your lights which in my case made my led tubes flicker while the switch was in the off position. I took my own advice and read the instructions which advised on how to wire so that the neon only comes on while the light is on (which is how I wanted it). NOTE I used T&E coming in and out of the switch. I’m not telling you anything that the instructions don’t, just attempting to clear up previous comments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neon I bought this as a 12v cut off switch on my boat. However the neon only seems to work in the off position? Is there a way to turn this around?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue with LED bulbs Switch works fine. Easy and logical to fit. Red neon so you can locate the switch when it's off. I fitted it to switch a bulkhead light in which I put an LED bulb. The current leakage through the red telltale neon was enough to set the LED flickering even when the switch was off, so I removed the neon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof Switch The switch is, well, a switch, but the neon light is on in the off position??? Might swap the wires over so works when on instead.
