British General 45A Pull Cord Switch White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid design Needed a replacement, this unit fitted straight in, only negative comment is the cord needs to be pulled really hard to switch on/off, so make sure the base is well secured to the roof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 45amp shower isolator Bit expensive for what it is but its high ampage safty double switch and has long service life with neon and on/off word (so u know its isolated with electric off) although i prefer the old type isolators where the base is screwed to the ceiling and all connections are made in the base then the cover plate goes on top its just a cover where the pull cord goes through and neon light shines through, so much easyer and faster to fit but there not available these days. But this nice slim square type looks great in a modern bathroom, and has a very definite CLICK pull cord, good string spring ensures its isolated instantly i also run heated mirrors, shaver sockets, duel fuel radiators etc through this switch with independent fuse spurs on other side of wall etc

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value switch Bought this to replace an MK 45A pull-cord switch, which failed after less than 10 months use. This British General feels superior, from the solid, clearly marked terminals, to the smooth operation - and for almost half the price! Only slight criticism is that the earth terminals are quite small and mounted low in the housing, making it difficult to get a screwdriver on them at the right angle to tighten. But it’s a small grumble for what is otherwise a considerably better option than the previous MK (which, during its brief life, was always stiff and noisy to turn on and off, and on which the red ‘on’ light never worked from day one).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement Unit Bought this to replace a worn out MK switch. This one is well made, feels sturdy, the cable clamp screws are in a really good position. What I like about it is that it is quiet in operation, the previous unit always made a very loud noise when bed by switched on, this one is quieter than the bathroom light pull switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Fit Shower Pull Switch Very easy to fit, plenty room round the screw heads. Fitted in 5 minutes, too early to comment on reliability.
