Yes, but switch and wiring will be exposed inside of closet or pantry. I mount the switch on the door frame head and hinge side of door.

The wiring has to go through the frame, unless you designed another way to make it work without coming in contact with the door.

I removed a switch that is currently installed in the door jamb and it only has two wires and no metal encasement. Does this need to be grounded?

Answer: 
No it does not have to be grounded. This switch acts as a bridge for the hot wire and nothing else. The only part of the circuit that needs to be grounded is the light fixture.

Answer: 
Wire the switches in parallel. That is, connect the "hot" wire to one lead of each switch, and connect the other lead of each switch to the light fixture. Then connect the neutral to the light fixture as you normally would. Now, when either switch is closed, the circuit through the light will be completed.

Answer: 
It would work just like a regular light switch in a room with two light switches that control the same light. You would need two hot wires going to the light instead of just one.

Can these be used with bi-fold doors?

This question is from 10-Amp Single-Pole AC/DC Push Button Door Switch
Asked by

Typical doors close on an arc that brings the door edge onto switch in the jamb in a direct edge on jamb manner.
It may be that the way bi-folds close that the smaller door edge and different arc of the door and the space required for bi-folds to swing along the jamb may make the use of these switches questionable...can you advise or suggest an alternate style.

Answer: 
As long as the door / bi-fold can make contact enough to press the button to turn the light off than it should work fine. Currently this is the only indoor switch that we offer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good price and service Product worked as specified. It came with all the components needed to install. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! It has worked exactly as expected. It seems well made, and was easy and straight forward to install. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement switch While the product is very good, it is designed to current specifications. For that reason, replacing old switches is not a simple process of removal of the old switch and substitution with the new switch. If one is replacing an older faulty switch, the owner may have to substitute the gang box as well as the switch to obtain the proper fit. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Instant on I had to replace a 40 year old switch. this one was the same dimensions, but it did not fin into the old box. It did however come with it's own electrical box and it fit in the hole nicely. I am happy with the quality of the unit. It is nice an quiet too. March 8, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice little door switch The switch comes with it's own small junction box. All in one door switch. It can be flush mounted on the door stop or littered in to the door frame. December 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install, works nicely. Simple install, great way to make pantry light up with out looking for the switch on the wall. November 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective out of the box Cut hole in the door jam and installed only to find out the cheap plastic switch was defective. Now I have no choice but to spend another $20 for a replacement. Buyer beware, test it before you install. July 20, 2015
