    Can anybody recommend a reliable 45A shower pull cord switch. One where the mechanical indicator does not cause problems. Is there a shower switch with a neon only. Thanks

    Thanks Lectrician and Dobbie I shall give the Crabtree switch a try. Appreciate your prompt reply.

    My choice none of 'em

    Love 45A /50A pull switches as much as a Square D or Crabtree breakers with push in connectors

    Firestarters the lot of em

    Plate switch all the way for that amount of current going through a flimsy set of contacts yanked too hard up in the ceiling. .

    Sparky, interesting, can you recommend one. :)

    I'm looking at replace my ceiling switch very soon, for this same reason.

    The Crabtree is prob. the safest bet pn the pull cord flavour, although still cpra in ALL aspects for hard working current carrying IMO

    Plate switch, agree avoid LAP, cheap cihnk tat, MK would give longest life expectancy, but all this stuff going in has not got the build strengths of the old stuff being withdrawn for service owing to 'it looks old fashioned'

    this why I tell customers to leave them on it only a form of isolation anyway
