There's a lot of negative reviews but I think it's possible most are user error. You need to use the right tools for these. If you try and use a dainty little screwdriver to fix the wires you won't be able to turn the screws, you need a full size one with as wide a bit as will work, likewise for the fixing screws. I bought six and they've all worked perfectly.

What were they thinking? The screws are almost impossible to turn.
Couldn't figure out how to connect the wires till read some reviews on here, you have to try and force the screws through the thread, must be a finishing issue at the factory.
Once done they are ok.

I bought 3 of these, despite the negative comments in earlier reviews, and was glad I did. They look a lot better than the aged and dated brass switches I was replacing. I didn't have any problems with the screws in the connectors. I just loosened and tightened them a couple of times, with a good quality screwdriver. It was simple.

The name MK says it all, well designed ergonomically and of good quality, ok the terminal screws are a bit stiff at the start (MK CAN YOU EASE THEM IN AT PRODUCTION) but it is no big problem using the correct size screwdriver. The bad reviews on the terminal screws are I expect from DIYers and not electricians. These look good and operate smoothly. Fitted these on a bungalow rewire and would not have used if they were no good, leave adequate tails and no problem.
Alright once id figured how to wire it up

HI. I have one of these switches and was scratching myhead for a while figuring our how to get the screws to tighten on to the wire. After reading the reviews on here I had another go and it works fine. The screws come out of the packet in an open position and need tightening to clamp the wire in place. There is a strong resistance in the housing and it appears the screw is at its lowest point. You then need to gently apply presure being careful not to round off the screw and it will tighten further allowing it to come low enough in the housing to clamp the wire adequately. Slight head scratcher but a bit of gentle force sorted the problem and the switch works fine
