Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kerrclimb 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smohrmax 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by update 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robbob 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GJOrangePark 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plays18 Fantastic little product!
I did not know these switches existed, but this works like a charm for adding a switch function at a standard outlet. The grounded version like this are not stocked in the stores or easy to find - you have to buy them online.
Great item, with a decisive "click" from on to off. Works perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Simple yet effective
My George Forman grill and my induction portable cooktop both lack an on-off power switch. It's frustrating having to move appliances around the countertop to access an outlet to plug these in when needed. These appliances now have there own on-off switches. I bought a few extra to have on-hand knowing I'll find more applications for them. Such a simple idea yet so effective.
