Answer: 
Yes it can but, it's going to get tight in there. If your box is one of the extra deep boxes you will find it
easier to tuck the wiring in. Carefull about not trimming to much insulation at the terminals and pay
attention to clearances between the two switches and the sides of the box (if it's metal).

Answer: 
Yes, you can install it in one side of a two switch box. Just be careful when pressing your wires to the back, because the grounding tab is easily broken off.

Yes, this can be installed in a two switch box. I actually have mine installed alongside a duplex toggle switch unit and it fits really nicely. I wish that it worked reliably, though.

Answer: 
Hello Dirk, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
This item will replace a single switch. It will fit in either a single or multiple gang box. This timer will not act as a 3-way switch.
I hope this helps,
Newf.

Answer: 
No grounding terminal. It comes with a ground wire that is riveted to a metal tab. The metal tab is easily broken; at that point, grounding the switch becomes a problem. Another fellow said he soldered his back on.

In-Wall Spring Wound Countdown Timer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't last. I expect better from General Electric. Poorly made. I have one I installed a year ago. it has a date stamp of 2/15 and it's not 9/16. It has already failed. It stays in position and the fan never shuts off. I expect better quality from GE. I hope their jet turbines aren't made this poorly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the garage. I use this because my family used to leave the garage lights on. Now they can't! Easy to install in place of the regular switch.
Date published: 2012-01-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work after only 1 month I installed this timer approximately one month ago. It worked fine for two weeks. Since then it gets stuck on random times and won't turn the fan off. I plan on buying a different brand to replace it.
Date published: 2013-07-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spring Loaded Timer Switch The company should try to reduce the width of the switch about 1/8 inch to better accommodate two switches in one double box.
Date published: 2012-02-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what it's supposed to do Bought for a closet light. No more lights left on.
Date published: 2012-04-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Bathroom Fans I bought this timer for the bathroom fan as i felt i never kept it on long enough after showering to remove the moisture. This way I can set it and leave and allow the humidity to drop. It also does NOT require a Neutral Wire (compared to the digital timers) so there is less to mess around with in installation. It is a bit wide so it was hard to get in (as well as the screws to clamp down on the wire), so it took a bit longer than anticipated. quality seems good, but a bit pricey. Should help control humidity in bathroom

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very delicate, easily broken during installation I bought two of these at my local Home Depot - one for the bathroom heat lamps, one for the bathroom fan. The screws that secure the wires sink into plastic, so it is very easy to strip during installation. Once that happened, the timer could no longer be installed (garbage). Also, the ground wire tab broke off the switch when installing. The second one went in OK. I had previously installed 6 Intermatic timers in the bathrooms of my other houses with no trouble - I'm going back to the Intermatic timers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works, but kind of cheap Installed it for a bath fan. Not crazy about the cover plate being over the wall plate for the switch. Will not fit inside of the rectangle plate openings like the Leviton's/Lutrons. Broke the plastic threaded neck that the bolt screws onto to hold the cover plate. Not a lot of tolerence for over tightening. The "white" plate and knob still looks tan next to a white cover plate. Overall just so-so.
