British General 6A 1-Way Pull Cord Switch White is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok to get you out of trouble The switch has a very weak click and I'm not sure how long it will last, also the back box is very brittle so just be aware when doing the knock outs and fixing the box to the celing

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor quality Very poor quality, loose connection in the pull switch. Spent 30 minutes to fix the switch then found that you need to shake the string to make it work. Extremely disappointed first time with Screwfix.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 12 weeks use It's horrible. Lightweight, flimsy, didn't feel positive when you pulled the string. Yes it's very quiet, but after 12 weeks the mechanism broke and you needed to fiddle with the string to get the light to stay on. I've just replaced it with the crabtree one and it feels and sounds so much better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bathroom corded light switch Quality is not what I expected. Slightly poor in quality. Hard Plastic is suceptable to chips and crack. Rose edges were bit rough. Connection were easy and good. Pull cord good. Light sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worst switch I've ever fitted. Unless the cord is pulled absolutely vertically, and not allowed to swing, the light goes off.
