Great replacement for old smoke alarm
Our existing 20 year old smoke alarms were continually being set off by the slightest whiff of smoke from cooking, and even steam from the shower. We thought that we'd have to phone an electrician to get new alarms fitted but were surprised to find the exact same model on Safelinks. Fitting was as simple as disconnecting the wires, sliding the old ones off and sliding new ones on. The little tool supplied for releasing the catches worked well - though it's basically just a small screwdriver. Very pleased.
Excellent replacement and simple to install
Quality product that you can rely on.
Easy to replace. Good stuff
The alarm was really easy to replace and turned out much cheaper than getting the old one serviced.

Excellent and easy to install.
As expected, straightforward exchange / upgrade of existing time expired devices.

Easy to replace and install.
I needed a replacement for my old smoke alarm and found the information on the website really easy to understand. As my old alarm was over 10 years old I was pleased that there was still the option of a replacement product rather than having to install a new one.
very easy to replace. hope it never has to work for real
product as described and easy to install
I would recommend this product. It was exactly the same as the smoke alarms already installed which were more than 10 years old andthey were easy to install. Really glad i found the safelincs website as it saved me getting an electrician in.
Had some difficulty understanding the instructions to detach old smoke alarm.
one of three alarms continued to ring every 10 minutes and had to contact you to find out what to do (faulty replacement) But pleased with rapid replacement.
Simple to install instructions easy to understand
Fast delivery, great item
Graet service, help and advice was spot on have recommend Safelincs to others
Already said above, the only comment I would make is recommendation for disposal of old units.
amazed at the prompt ordering and delivery, delighted with result. Thank you
Clear instructions - easy to install
Great products, great service, great website, why go anywhere else? As somebody who has a technical brain (I am a chartered engineer) but no knowledge of this product except that it is a necessary safety accessory for any home. I was presented with two alarms in our home that displayed warnings that the batteries were at the end of their useful life.
The units in our home were 10 years old (we purchased the house 7 years ago), so imagine my surprise when a Google search found your site and sitting there were replacement units waiting to be purchased.
Question %u2013 Would these replacements fit 10-year old housings and save me a new installation? The site content was brilliant I didn%u2019t need to speak to anybody, the descriptive text was crystal clear, I placed the order, they arrived exactly as forecast and they took just minutes to fit.
Great products, great service and because of that I also purchased your CO2 alarm and that again took just minutes to fit
Replaced 2 x Ei151 in 15 minutes.
easy replacement for the 10 year old original.
Quick delivery, fitted in minutes
Very easy to replace time expired unit.
Easy like for like replacement

The safety catch is not as easy to release as it sounds! The connector plug is easy to remove but difficult to push in. In both cases it probably would be easy if one had the base and the alarm on a bench, but it is a different matter up on the ceiling. However the replacement was achieved successfully and the idea of being able to do this is brilliant.

A very easy replacement fire alarm, the instructions were clear.

Easy to follow instructions and fit replacement cartridge without damaging any decoration or being a major job

We firstly made a call to make sure that our old ei150 could be replaced with a newer Easichange Replacement Smoke Alarm for Ei151, Ei151TL, Ei151TLH, which it could. We then placed the order online. The 2 alarms we bought we packaged well and arrived in a reasonable amount of time. To install them was a breeze, took about 30 seconds for each one, clip in the electrical connector and slide into our existing ei150 holders. Very happy indeed, thanks.

Excellent service! Person I spoke to (Zak) was very helpful and knowledgeable without being patronising to one who doesn't know the first thing about smoke alarms. A lot of other companies could learn from the efficient way you obviously run your own. What a change to say "well done". I'm sure the smoke alarm will give many years of useful (and necessary) service.
Had been searching shops for this product but could not find anywhere that sold just an easy replacement kit that I could fit at home onto the base that is secured to the ceiling. So easy to fit.

The Easichange Replacement Smoke Alarm really was easy to replace. Literally took a couple of minutes and negated the need and expense of calling in an electrician.
26th August 2012
My alarms malfunctioned in the middle of the night. I used the manufactures website to tell me how to disconnect and then used your site to buy the replacements. The replacements arrived the following working day and were installed my me that morning. The installation was really easy. They are called "easichange replacements" because that's exactly what they are. Very satisfactory. Thanks.
Received quickly and very easy to fit... Extremely fast and easy way to have smoke detector fully repaired and reasurrance again
23rd April 2012
Really happy to be able to buy a replacement that I can install myself. Much better - and cheaper - than buying a whole new unit and paying an electrician to fit it. Thank you!
Quality product which was very easy to install.

Very Easy to install. Remember to read the instructions regards the battery charging beeps.
Installation could not have been easier
Website information was to the point and as as accurate as it was intended to be. Items are extremely easy to change and they come with the relevant tool (which doubles as a pen I might add). Delivery was as fast as it should have been and I am more than happy with the purchased items. Tahnk you.
easy instructions,just removed the old one,plug in the new one and click into position,took less than five minutes.

Easy peasy to fit too
Perfect replacement for the original broken unit. Ordering easy and delivery prompt.
Great product. So easy to replace.
simple straightforward replacement ..makes it easy to keep smoke alarm in working order
Just what I ordered and very easy to fit. Completely satisfied
Following a power cut soon after having moved into our new home, I soon realised that the rechargeable batteries in our mains powered smoke dectectors were inoperative. I found these exact replacements at Safelincs very easily and 2 days after placing the order they had arrived and were installed - perfect.
I bought the 'Easichange' replacement kits to replace my end of life EI151 and EI156 smoke alarms. Your web site promised they would be easy to fit...and that has turned out to be the case. I had no problem changing them (other than tamper catch a bit fiddly). Very satisfied.
