No reset switch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Surge Master 6-Way Tel/Fax/Modem Protection with 2m Cable (Electronics)
I had one of these for a few months and then it stopped working. I'll be generous and assume it detected a surge and cut the power to protect my equipment. Which is great.
Unfortunately, there's no reset switch on this model. The fuse in the plug is fine, but there's no way to get at the fuse inside the unit because it's fitted with anti-tamper screws that can be tightened but not removed. So the whole thing has to be replaced.
Naturally, I'm happy that it did the job of safeguarding my equipment. But next time, I'll look for a model that can be reset after a power surge.

If the MOV pop's in side your surge unit, its done its job by protecting your goods. The item your after is not made !!

There are (or were, when I posted the review) several models with a reset switch. E.g.
Ex-Pro Surge protected 8 Gang extension with coaxial protection, Power on/off and reset switch, 2 metre lead, EMI/RFI noise filter to protect sensitive electronic equipment i.e computers. Circuit breaker, Surge protection for up to 8 appliances + coaxial sockets.
The one I ended up getting, and which my computer is plugged into right now, is made by Basonic. It provides surge protection using a circuit breaker with a push button reset switch on the top.
