How to understand the basics of electricity

Your home's electricity supply is distributed by the consumer unit (usually known as the fuse box), where the flow of electricity is split to feed the various circuits. Socket outlets and fused connection units can be provided with electricity via two types of wiring layout, known as radial and ring circuits. Your home may well have both types, as the power supply is usually split into at least two circuits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice neat switch got 2 of these switches for a job I was working on, they were good value for money and look good, on the downside they were a little "snug" when fitted into metal back boxes, not a lot of room for the wires.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly manufactured As other reviewers have pointed out the terminal screws are much to stiff. I managed to free them up by progressively screwing/unscrewing but was concerned the force required would damage the screw head. Have always used and recommended MK or Crabtree but the quality of this product and other reviewers comments have shaken my confidence in MK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive and useless Relied on MK brand, but found that the grub screws were too short to trap the lectrical wire to make the connection. Wasted journey to B & Q. Would rate 0 if I could! Another journey needed to return them for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor flimsy design Flimsy design on connections and didn't work. Useless went somewhere else for another make.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor QA means product is U/S out of the bag Bought two weeks ago as replacement for paint seized unit. The grub screws are very tight and in one instance cannot be moved! The terminals are not threaded correctly (or at all) and brass doesn't self-tap very well - hence stiff/stuck terminal screws. The conclusion is poor and/or indifferent quality control. Avoid this product and buy the crabtree version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective like Previous Reviewer's Bought this today and like the previous reviewer grub screws are installed so tightly they cannot be removed. Very disappointing for a so-called premium make. Will be going back tomorrow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light switch I bought this switch about 3 weeks ago, and had to return to the store 3 times because the screws could not be slackened even the elec assistant could not slacken them. This was a good make MK. How they passed the quality inspection I will never know.?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive and incomplete fixtures I bought this unit as I considered it the best quality product from the three options in B&Q, but it does not come supplied with the fixing screws which are non-standard (smaller length) and hence, you have to add to your already expensive purchase by buying an additional bag of screws (unless you have these). Importantly, it is not until you are home and installing the equipment that you realise there are no screws and have to return to the store! Maybe not B&Q's problem, but I really do not understand why the manufacturer - MK - do not supply 2 x screws with this product (and their larger extended double switch version). Every other light switch that I could see in B&Q came supplied with these screws!! Very disappointed as it (a) was an additional cost on top of the 'premium' product in this range; and (b) added additional time onto the job as I had to return to the store to find out why the screws were not in the packaging.
