Poor quality control...

Poor quality control...

People just don't know how to do quality control any more. This Crompton-badged pygmy lamp was put into a socket on my test box once when I first got it, to check it was working. I put it into a socket again today to use it and one of the locating pins on the BC cap has come adrift. Not impressed.

I bought a pack of 5 of them so no great loss, it's just annoying. I don't really like this shape much, the old pygmy shape (see here) were much nicer to look at
