How to check your electrical system is safe

How to check your electrical system is safe

There are some tell-tale signs that your system is out of date and unsafe to work on (old-style rubber-sheathed cable, for example). But even if you live in a modern house with an electrical system that's been professionally checked and approved in the past ten years, things can still go wrong. So make sure it's safe before you begin work.

If you're in any doubt, get it checked by a qualified electrician.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good No problems.Nice round feel.Only negative if a negative is they don't have a resounding click on or off . don't suppose you want them to stick out too far but they just feel kind of shallow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very poor quality connectors! The switch looks and feels good quality that I expect as it was made in UK. However, all 6 of the connectors were seized fully open and I broke a screwdriver trying to loosen them. After rounding off the last one of the screws, I had to return it for another and asked if I could test the 2nd before I purchased as it costs me more to get to B&Q than the switch is worth, it also had the same problem! 3 of the screws were seized that was better than the first one. I took a 3rd one and after 5 minutes of fighting the screws carefully in the store, I finally managed to free all 6 of the screws. It is possible that it was a faulty batch, but it was a nightmare to install due to the seized up screws!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose ! Bought the first one earlier this afternoon. The connector screws were all stiff and two were impossible to move. I popped back to the shop to return and picked up a replacement. I got home and had exactly the same problem. One screw just wouldn't move ! Impossible to connect and NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE. Three hours wasted !! Do NOT buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor product This product looked good value in the shop but I wish I had taken the time to read the reviews. On trying to fit the switch, the terminal screws were so stiff, and unable to turn, and when you managed to get them to turn they jammed and the thread gave way. Ultimately the product was not fit for purpose and B&Q should stop selling such a poor quality product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor terminal connections Should have read comments before purchasing,I agree with the comments that that have been made.The screw connectors on the common terminals would not move in any direction.Not recommended poor quality from a well established supplier

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality switch due to bad terminal screws These are not the quality I expect from many years of knowing and using MK mains switches and sockets. The terminal screws binded on the threads and took much force to unscrew them. One terminal was so tight the terminal was unusable as the screw head got mashed whilst slackening it. My MK two way 2 gang switch is being returned to B&Q.
