How to fix ceiling pull switch case to the ceiling?
My bathroom pull switch is too narrow. Are there different widths that you can buy? The problem lies in the distance between the ceiling fixing screws. I think we need a wide fitting device, as I have tried to fill the ceiling and it just comes away when I try to raw plug it!
