Not NIG !

ConsNot NIG!
This is NOT the NIG version. This is the original and very dangerous slipping-into-netural AW hub which, in my humble opinion, was never fit for purpose and should never have made it off the drawing board.
SJS Customer Service:
It's true, this IS NOT the NIG version (no intermediate gaps?) this is the design that remained pretty much unchanged from 1936 until some time around the 1990s when the NIG upgrade slipped quietly into production. Many millions of miles have been ridden on hubs with this design, it is however essential to a) correctly adjust the cable b) know HOW to change gear, easing off the pressure or better still momentarily pedalling backwards.
Cheaper than buying replacement parts!!

£14.99 Where can you go wrong?? I took the one I purchased apart when it arrived and it is ready to install into my 36 hole hub housing. It is ready to go. No fuss!! I am buying another one for my second bike.

ConsTakes five minutes to remove innards and replace.
ProsBrand new and cheaper than just buying axle key and pawl springs to repair old hub.
Brand new and perfect, only problem is 28 hole hub. Easily solved, simply transfer the mechanicals into a hub with required number of spoke holes, simple, and now you have a brand new 36 hole three-speed hub at a bargain price!.
