British General 45A Pull Cord Switch White is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Smoooooooth I previously had an Axiom switch with an almost identical spec. That one was always very stiff to pull, but after it jammed up and had to be un-jammed on 4 occasions, this in 9 months, I decided it was time to replace it. I got the BG one from Screwfix, the layout was almost identical, so my previous wiring went straight in with no alterations. I cannot comment on the long-term reliability, as it has only been in use for a couple of weeks as I am writing this review, but I feel very confident it will not cause the problems I have experienced with its predecessor. The operation is both very smooth and positive, neither of these were true of the previous switch. I will be looking for BG products for future purchases.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pull Cord Switch The switch does not have clear markings showing the incoming supply or load connections. The AC only marking is the load (shower pump) that is isolated by the switch. The switch is reliable switching but the action is stiff compared to old pull switch which failed after 15 years of constant use. The switch is well made with a stiff action but is not clearly marked on the unit or in the instruction leaflet.. No recommended for beginner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Supply /load An excellent switch which installed as easily as expected with thick power cable. However there was no obvious indication of which side was supply and which was Load. Inevitably I got it the wrong way round. Doesn't affect the working, but the neon stays on to indicate that the power supply is ok, rather than operating to show that the shower is 'live' If my daughter insists, I will get the ladder out and turn it round .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pull cord Easy to fit pullcord. Designed well. Neon is well protected against other models can be flimsy and easily damaged whilst terminating Load cables.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made switch Had to change my shower pull cord switch as it had cracked. This was a direct replacement & the terminals & screws were much bigger than the previous ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fit Needed a new one to replace a broken one at my son's. Was much cheaper than the local wholesalers and connected easily. Many brass connectors shear when tightening 6mm cables, but these terminals seemed strong.
