Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
The 3 Core In-Line Foot Switch is used on any unswitched light fitting. It is positioned on the cable between the light fitting and the plug.
Its strong plastic case is durable enough to be stepped on to switch on and off, making it extremely easy to use.

It only switches one wire, and in the UK this must be the Brown live wire. There are terminals for the other two wires, or they can be passed through with just with the live wire interrupted by the switch. The cord grips are of the standard clamp type and reasonably effective.
It is tough enough to stand up to normal domestic use, but don't even think about risking it near any water, or coffee spills etc, because it has no pretence of any ingress protection.
Assembling the wiring into it is fiddly because there is not much room inside and it is only held together by the cover screws. I have several of them in use with the normal 3Amp or 5Amp three core mains flex, nothing bigger will fit.
I have a couple of alternative uses to the normal floor lamps:
with an Overhead Projector for transparencies at a presentation - to avoid that boring white patch on the wall burning out the audience's eyes when they should have their attention elsewhere;
on the desk-bound PSU for my laptop's docking station for when I'm not using it - at 6W the standby power is far too high.
This type of foot switch is widely available from DIY outlets as well as on-line at a wide range of prices. Some multipacks, five switches at a time, can be found for less than a tenner.
It operates less consistently than the one it was bought to replace.
