    As above... replaced switch as neutral had cooked due to poor connection. replaced for MK 50A, out of the packet really dissapointed only one earth terminal and terminal screws for that and l & N connections quite small and weak looking. Connected it and ensured that terminals were nice and tight.
    Anyway customer has just text to say shower has to be turned on then off then on again to work - it seems the internal mechanism is also not up to scratch. Im going to get refund - (£15!!) and replace but any suggestions on brand - i normally go crabtree but they are round. cheers

    Click are fine too, I always use the 50a rated one, twin screw terminals and reasonably priced too.

    Hager does a pretty decent shower switch

    I used to like Contactum but that was a few years ago since I fitted one. From above It sounds like the Hager twin screw seems a good choice.I think that with the one screw the cable creeps which causes the pull cord to burn out.

    We always use Hager. No complaints.
    It's worth changing the pattress for a Hager one as well though, to ensure compatibility.

    Although not square i like the crabtree ones as you fix the unit to the ceiling first then connect it up and it then has a cover that screw on , so you are not disturbing the connections like other pull cords has you try and dress the cables back into the back box

    Click also do a 50A Pullcord like that. It looks equally horrendous, but they seem to do the job.

    Agree with @Dave OCD@Dave OCD I like the Click Polar Square one (PRW211). It's the 50A version, and has 2 screws for each connection.

    Hager everytime for me - 50 Amp rated, nice smooth operation & all the connection screws face the front.
