Will I need an adapter kit for my Bakelite switch? It really depends on how or what you are fitting them to. You need an adapter kit if you are fitting a Bakelite switch onto an existing wall box (with oak pattress). The adapter fits to the wall box (as shown below) and the pattress is fitted to the adapter by using the long screws through the pattress from the Bakelite switch.
