Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice toggle switch Nice product. Easy flick of the switch. I am using this switch to turn on-off a 4ft shop light instead of always plugging or unplugging the power cord. Makes life just that must easier. It's been working great for a month now. December 10, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I needed - helping me (and all of us) save energy! This product is helping me save energy. I've used the two-pin version before to make it easier to turn off Christmas tree lights, but I wanted the grounded three-pin version to save energy costs by temporarily disabling heavier energy-draw devices like the TV and the charger for my plug-in hybrid car. I've attached a photo of the toggle switch in action with my plug-in car charger. These work beautifully - they're solid, well-made, with a satisfying and well-defined "click" on and off. It really is handy. I'll probably get a few more of them! August 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what i needed Got these for a shop light and a pop corn maker that have no switches. These filled the void so I don't have to plug and unplug for every use. Just hope they last. Everything comes from Chiwaun anymore so you know what I mean. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy 3 prong switch. Very handy for three prong devices like computer laptop cords that keep drawing power even when the device is off. Just swith off with this instead of unplugging and plugging. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good prod The switch is large and easy to use. Kind of pricey for what it does, but it does the job well. February 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wish I had this earlier I have 2 fluorescent lights in the basement without switches. They required plugging and unplugging every time I needed light: clumsy and inconvenient. I searched all over for switches like these for years but could only find 2-prong examples. Thanks to the internet I found these deliverable to a Home Depot store. Now it is a simple matter of flipping the switch to have light. But — why does Home Depot (and other stores, for that matter) not keep these in stock? At $12 each these are not cheap, but they do the job, provide a great convenience, and ought to last a lifetime. Switches do wear out or break, and I have had these only a matter of weeks, but they seem to be well made. August 12, 2014
