The only way to guarantee failure, is not to try

Hi.  Have used various designs of these on my Kidmore series of layouts (www.kidmorengauge.weebly.com).  Provided that you are prepared to accept a 10% failure rate then they are an absolute bargain compared with UK available equivalents.  The "dead" ones I simply cut the wire tails off & use them in parts of layouts where I'm not bothered about functionality.
