British General 6A 1-Way Pull Cord Switch White is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Switch fails quickly My Mrs thought it was down to my poor skills in fitting (she's often right) but I've now replaced the bathroom switch twice in a little over 12 months. Reading some of the other reviews, it looks like a common problem. Works fine at first, starts to stick a little after a few months and then just won't work at all after about 6 months. I'd look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pull cord switch My old pull switch for the light in my bathroom wore out & it is positioned between an extractor fan pull switch & a shower pull switch. It is also set in the coving near tthe wall so all the ones I saw in the high street shops were large & square whereas I needed one with a smaller round base.I looked on the Screwfix website & immediately found this switch, It was slightly larger than my old one but with some cutting into the coving, I was able to fit it easilly. Easy to wire in & fix to the ceiling & brilliant value! Full marks Scewfix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rescue Light The string snapped on previous light leaving me unable to switch off. The light switch was ideal and easily fitted. Fully functional bathroom lights now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily replaced failed unit I Replaced a failed switch with this unit and I was able to use the existing mounting which saved a bit of time. Overall seems lime a good item, obviously can't comment on reliability at this point in it's life cycle. Screwfix Amersham is a god send!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what was wanted The switch was cheap, easy to fit and served its purpose. Absolutely no problems. I have only marked it as good for reliability since I've only fitted it 2 nights ago but if it's like all of the other things I've bought from Screwfix it should last for ages..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money Brought as a replacement unit and fitted easily and quickly . Although I only needed a 1 way unit and it was advertised as a 1 way it actually has the fittings for a 2 way unit !! Plenty of cord that was easily adjustable to suit what ever length you need !
