How to Wire a Light Switch UK?

Answer

To wire a one-way light switch, first run a 2 wire ground cable from the breaker to the switch. Run another cable from the switch to the screw terminals on the light. Pull the cable through one of the holes in the box, leaving six inches exposed. Strip one-half inch of insulation from both white wires and join using a wire nut. Strip about one-half inch of insulation from both black wires. Connect one to each screw terminal on the switch. Mount the switch to the box using the included screws.
