Customer Questions & Answers

My old light switches have a terminal on each side and doesn't look like it has a ground terminal.

Will it be ok to use this new light switch? I da going to change them but I noticed the difference and decided to hold off. Thank you
Asked by: Joe
Older switches grounded through the metal base strap. Recognizing a ground-fault problem, manufacturers started making a separate ground terminal. This is necessary when using non-metallic boxes, conduit, or cables. Terminal styles vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but they are all SPST (Single Pole Single Throw) toggle switches; it will be fine for applications 15 amps and lower. NOTE FOR SAFETY: After the new switch is wired up, put a wrap or two of electrical tape around the switch, over the terminals. This prevents accidental short circuiting and reduces the shock hazard.

Rated for CFL inductive loads?

Is this switch rated for CFL inductive loads and not just incandescent types (T-switch)?
Asked by: Londontowne
This switch will be fine for a CFL application. Should you desire to DIM the CFL, then changes are necessary.

is this switch compatible with aluminum wire ?

Asked by: snowman
It is never a good idea to mix copper and aluminum wire; NFPA codes indicate this is a fire hazard. In order to carry the normal 15 amp house branch current, the aluminum wire has to be MUCH larger than a copper wire with the same capacity. Personal choice: swap out the aluminum for copper of the same rating. Smaller diameter and malleability means the copper is easier to pull through conduit and bend for specific applications.

The switches they have now the screws on the are the color, so which one is hot and neutral how do you know the differen

Asked by: Don822
This is a traditional single-pole switch and it does not have a terminal for a Neutral connection, as it does not require one. You only wire the hot (120V) and switch leg to the two terminals--it doesn't matter which. Save the green terminal for the ground wire.

15 Amp Single-Pole Toggle Switch, Light Almond is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value No reason to pay more. Basic Leviton switches last years/decades. Have installed thousands in apartment buildings without any failures.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These switches are junk. I have to buy them in bulk because they break so fast. I bet I have replaced about 6 of these in the last year. They are really cheap plastic and break easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great switch, On the cheap! If you're looking for a decent toggle switch, but you're on a "as cheap as I can get by" budget, then this switch is for you! My experience shows this particular model will work great, work quietly, and will continue to do so without problems for years. And to top it off, the manufacturer has incorporated multiple connection types for the easiest installations, ever. So look no farther... this is YOUR switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed!!!! This product was very easy to install, it replaced older switches which had gone bad, I have had those since the 70's, the older ones has posts on both sides, so the video attached to this item, made it clear, how to install this new one in replacement of older models, I installed 3 in less than 20 minutes, I like the hardware and craftsmanship, the sound has "new house" sound, I would highly recommend this light switch, these replaced, one kitchen, and two, wash room switches, they work perfect, excellent price for the quality. It was my first time doing this type of replacement, so the video attached to the product, was very helpful in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lights ON Purchased our first home, which had almond switches, painted over a few times in the bedrooms. Re-doing rooms one at a time, and bedrooms were first. Replaced old worn out switches with these new White Leviton Switches. Couldn't be easier. Just remember to shut power off!
