for £6.95 you can get a 6 way switchable from most diy stores

i searched around for a 6 gang one a while back for use with a UPS so i wanted them all switchable, and didnt need the surge protection crap.... ended up getting one from argos !

would much prefered to have gotten a "named" brand one though, although that said, first thing i had to do was swap the cable out for a longer one with the right plug i needed on it !

£1.99 on ebuyer a while back maybe check there see if the offer still going?

yeah - missed the e buyer and not seen anything since.

Did toy with the idea of this too - remote controlled - and reduced!

argos.co.uk/web…%3E

Not sure if they are reliable though

interestingly that is not the argos one i got, i think mine cost more than that, and each socket switch has its own neon indicator, not that i really wanted them !

only thing i find with it is if the switches are flicked with the pluged in item on, then it can ark a little and you see it through the case !

I would probably have gone for the wilkinson one had i seen it previously... as the lead is 2m long, 1m is jsut too short, so i had to change the lead as well as the plug for my needs ! the one i have seems to do the job ok though,


I saw that remote one earlier too and have to admit i was interested !

Found they were all that price excluding postage thats why I posted - but with the caveat that you have to collect - lucky if you live near a Halfords (maybe)...

And to conclude, when I got there they hadn't got the damned thing anyway. Thank you Halfords and feel free to vote cold!
