    Hi All

    Bought a couple of click mode white plastic switches and changed one gang in a three gang 2 way to an intermediate. The switches do not now line up (The intermediate sits proud of the other two switches by about 1mm. I have called Scolmore who are looking into it but has anyone else come across this, is it normal as it is a different type of switch?

    eaton premera seem to do the same, the switch modules infact look identical from behind just with a different rocker so that's probably why, I didn't think the two companies were related though

    From the back, the modules look very similar to the old MEM Delta range. I presume that Scolmore bought the pattern from MEM/Eaton.

    I've tried Click Mode, but didn't like the brand at all.

    I recently fitted a 20 amp DP switch to a storage heater circuit as a replacement for an unswitched connection unit, but had to go back to replace it just a week later after the live terminal on the load side began burning (yes, the terminal connection was tight!)

    I wouldn't rate Click Mode any better than the crappy LAP range that Screwfix sell.
