Product Description

Product Description

MK Electric offers a comprehensive range of white ceiling accessories for all requirements, including these enhanced ‘safety’ lamp holders. Unlike most other ‘safety’ lamp holders, when the lamp is removed, this device automatically shields the contact by means of a specially designed shutter. The contact remains protected in that way until a lamp is inserted.

As the UK’s market leader in the supply of electrical wiring accessories, the aim of MK Electric is to lead the way in considering sustainable development in all activities. The company’s objectives are to provide innovation for the built environment, while preserving the natural environment. They aim to achieve these goals by reducing environmental impact and undertaking a number of initiatives.

The MK brand values of quality, reliability, safety and responsibility are embedded at all levels of the company. These, combined with a broad product portfolio, means that the company feels well-positioned to face the challenges that lie before it. Customers are at the centre of everything the company does, and the solutions and technologies of MK and its parent company Honeywell are delivering new products and processes which are more energy efficient and less harmful to the environment. MK calls these chances to innovate its ‘sustainable opportunities.’

    I bought this whole unit rather than the version 'without the mounting block' and I am glad that I did because the screw threads on the NEW 'switching' part were not compatible with the screw hole threads on the OLD 'mounting block'. Neither would the two screw heads from the OLD unit fit into the two screw holes of the new 'switching unit' (the two OLD screw heads were far too big to fit into the two countersunk receiving cups on the NEW switching unit). Both old and new were MK (though I hasten to add that the old MK unit was very old and had seen lots of service).

    The following measurements are the best I could record but might help in deciding whether this product will fit neatly where your old product currently fits (if you have an old one to replace). The diameter of the mounting block where it fits to the ceiling is approx 76mm. The diameter of the mounting block then slims a little to approx 71mm where it meets the 'switching unit'. The diameter of the switching unit where it meets the mounting block is approx 68mm. The screw centres in the switching unit are approx 51mm apart.

    It was simplicity itself to fit; but don't forget to turn the power off first. There were the usual two connectors in the switching unit for the wires (plus an earth in the mounting block unit). The connectors in the switching unit were mounted to receive the wires vertically and the screws to secure the wires were robust and easily accessible. It took just a few minutes to decommission the old unit and install the new one.

    I don't think there is anything else I can help with except to say that it works well of course.

    I bought this switch because I'd had problems with cheaper ones not lasting very long, so I thought I'd buy a "reputable" make.

    It failed after a few weeks (just long enough for the Amazon returns period to expire). We're a family of three, so the switch doesn't get heavy or rough use. I wonder if this is a genuine MK branded item or a fake.

    The superstore pull switches are rubbish, so i decided to get the premium MK switch which should have lasted. 4 weeks later it stuck, so i took it apart & trimmed a bit of the small plastic bit inside. Success, for 3 weeks. After doing the same again, it stuck again! This time i found the inner pull string had pulled through the plastic part. So had to improvise. After feeding the string through i used part of a raw plug to hold the knotted string in place. Works a treat now but why oh why can't they get it right the first time is beyond me. I like trying to fix things which is why i attempted this but would have bought another one as MK should work. Obviously the company are on a downward slope as this switch should have worked & lasted for years.

    I never choose any other brand for electrical components, and this is no different. Visually will be identical to any other ceiling pull switch, but what you get is knowledge that it is going to work safely for years and years. Can't say more than that really.

    Perhaps I was fortunate as I believe the existing fitting was MK . I replaced the whole unit as the base/pedestal had become a little discoloured over 25+ years. A medium screwdriver,an electrical screwdriver and I also found that a pair of long nosed wiring pliers helped to position the wires in their terminals. A lot quieter than my old switch.

    Purchased this in 2015, was working fine for few months, then switch started to stick, and had to wait hours for it to un-stick.
    Buy with caution, I can relate to all the other negative reviews for this product.

    I have been using the light switch for a month and it is still working well. Was easy to replace as I could use my existing base and just replace the pull cord part. I liked the fact it is from MK and the quality feels good. The light has a reassuring click when pulled and the cord was plenty long enough for my needs. The cord is 1.5 metres long and can easily be shortened to the required length. Very pleased with this so far. My previous MK lasted over 10 years so hopefully this one will match, fingers crossed.

    I was impressed with how easy it was to change, I switched the power off in the consumer unit and simply undid the cover screws. I then gently pulled the switch section down enough to unscrew the three wire connections within the fitting and rewired to the new fitting. Refit cover screws, switch power back on in the consumer unit and job done.

    NO STARS - Another MK Product that has failed in less than a year. I purchased this to replace a defective MK purchased a year ago and give the manufacturer the benefit of the doubt. I was expecting at this price that it would still be made in the UK. Unfortunately it is made in China. Will never buy MK ever again now I know they manufacturer in China and are poor quality.
