6 Amp Mini Thumb Wheel Cord Switch - Brown is rated 1.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy repair for cheap lamp I used this to fix a $10 Ikea Jansjo lamp, which has a fairly thin cord. Take your time, follow the directions, make sure the teeth puncture the wire. It feels more solid than the Ikea switch, which failed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design & cheap materials The only gauge wire I see working for this would be your Christmas Lights, and nothing else! The opening is too small for your average appliance wire. Even with a dremel tool to enlarge the opening, the points had a very hard time making the proper connection. Do NOT try to force and over tighten the screw, the case will crack...better off with another product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is junk.. you get what you pay for.. I bought this as an in-line switch for a lamp I built. It is pure junk and will not work with the normal lamp power cords. Piercing contacts never made contact with the wires in the cord. Tightening the screw only cause the case to crack. Do yourself a favor and buy a better quality switch. It seems Home Depot is buying everything from China and it shows in the quality. This was a total waste of money.. as little as it was.. but certainly not worth the level of frustration it created on this project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this! This says it is made for 18 gauge wire, but that says nothing of the thickness of the insulation of the lamp cord. This item was undersized for my normal size lamp cord I needed it for, and looking at the lamps in the store, it probably wouldn't fit any of them. I'll end up having to replace the entire lamp cord.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality This is an in-line switch purchased to fix a table lamb with a touch on and off feature that no longer worked. It is small and appeared to fit the application. Unfortunately the plastic material used is not adequate. When tightening the screw that closes the two pieces, it broke.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better but works fine I read the negative reviews of this product but ended up purchasing it anyway because it was available at my local home depot and I needed it that day. I experienced some of the same issues as the previous reviews but with a little bit of fiddling it now looks and works just fine. It did require a little adjusting though so be prepared for that. Below are more specifics. 1) It is made for thin cord and does not fit normal size lamp cord. I was able to fix this by enlarging the cord openings with a needle file. It took a little bit of patience. I kept filing until the cord fit snugly without being forced because I did not want to break the plastic as happened for some previous reviewers. This was not too much trouble but if you don't have any needle files you might want to look for a different switch that has the holes the same size as your cord. I expect the thinking behind having the holes come smaller is that there are a lot of different size cords out there and you can always enlarge the openings but you can't make them smaller if you are working with smaller cord (a snug fit is important to keep the wire from eventually breaking inside the switch). However most customers probably use these on normal size lamp cords and I am a little surprised the openings did not come already correctly sized for this application. 2) Some reviewers comment that the plastic breaks too easily. From reading their reviews I think this is probably because they tried to force the cord into the openings without enlarging them enough. The plastic on mine did not crack or snap at all. 3) Some reviewers commented that the prongs inside the switch did not fully pierce their cord and contact the wire, resulting in the switch not working because there is no connection. I had this problem at first. I took a razor blade and made a small slit in the cord sheathing right at the marks left by the prongs and then put the switch back together and it works perfectly now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cord holes too small, case cracks I should have read the other reviews that warned that the cord holes are too small. When I tightened the screw the case just cracked and the whole thing broke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work Like the other reviews I agree this "mini" switch will NOT work with regular lamp cords because the small notch on each end is not large enough to accept the cord. Have no idea what it actually will work with.
