When replacing my current light-swtiches with these new ones, should I be cautious about anything in particular, e.g. amps, voltage, etc?

Nah, just try not to touch the wires that make you tingle!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, just switch off the circuit breaker in the consumer unit that provides power to the lights. There will probably be two circuit breakers, one for upstair, one for downstairs.

I checked the Amazon deal, but the ones I wanted were more expensive there;

2 Gang 13A switched socket in chrome Amazon £8.90, Tesco £3.41 :whistling:


Best to check on both deals me thinks :thumbsup:

Just a note that if you're thinking about getting dimmer switches that dimmer switches & energy saving light bulbs are incompatible.

Always be carefull when messing with Electricity. Watch things like dimmer switches and GU10 as some are not compatible.

Electricity can kill!

im allways told that the steel ones all need earthing good spot op just what i needed



The metal ones need a earth connected to the actual switch plate, the ones i changed did anyway

Also be careful with the fluch fitting ones they can be a tight squeeze when fitting to the backplate

Although I will be getting a certified electrician in to replace my plastic light switches and sockets for metal ones, I am unsure as to which ones to purchase because I am clueless when it comes to DIY :whistling:. For example, for your standard light switch should I purchase the following: Polished Chrome 1 Gang 2 Way 6Ax Lightswitch (http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.100-7289.aspx), or a 10Ax one? I'm assuming that A represents amps.

Im not sure, sorry :oops:

The A is amps tho.
