Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandMN Sleek Switches
I used this because I didn't have enough room for (2) separate switches in my box. It works excellently and is easy to install. However, I do wish they made this switch with dimming function for both switches.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Branco1931 Exactly what I wanted
Exactly what I wanted, one side is a 3way switch and other is single pole, I saw in other reviews that the switch would start to feel hard after a while as for as the actual switching process and I've started to experience this but the switch still works.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FalconChief Nice look, sticks
I installed these in my kitchen to control above / below cabinet LED lights. I tested them thoroughly once installed and turned off the power while I finished my kitchen renovation. A few days later my wife asked why the upper switch was sticking? There seemed to be no reason for this but it was indeed VERY hard to move the switch in one direction. I tested the 2nd switch in the 3way circuit to find it doing the same thing. The upper switch was hard to move in one direction. Strangely enough the issue improved when I turned the power back on! I will continue to operate the switches to see if the issue goes away or gets worse. Word to the wise: Check the switch in the box BEFORE you buy them. There may be a standard single pole switch in a 3way box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JD Nice switch for fan and light without tearing into the gang box.
Very easy to install. I used it to install a ceiling fan where there was just a light switch. I didn't want to tear up the gang box.

Combination single pole & 3-Way switch worked perfect. Just a reminder that if your two lighting loads are coming from different circuits to remove the tab on the one side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gastrofoo Good part, exactly what I needed
Note that only one of the two switches is a 3-way; the other is a simple one. This happened to be exactly what I needed for my modification. I had a double-gang box with two switches, one 3-way and one simple. I wanted to add a receptacle, and this combo switch replaced my original two, allowing me to accomplish my goal. The two switches that I had replaced were on the same circuit, so I didn't need to pull out the tab on the HOT side, but I'd imagine that's not too hard to do if the switches are on two different circuits or if the three-way switch is on the other end (i.e. not fed directly by a HOT). Also, the connections can be made with only with screwing; there's no push-in connection, so it requires a bit of tweaking the wires. Overall I'm satisfied with the product. As other reviewers said, the description could probably be made more precise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JC911 Nice, but 2 things...
First, we really like the design. We have had one for a while and I wish I knew how long because I have had to replace it twice - it stopped working, meaning the light flickered or sometimes stayed on when the switched was pressed hard enough. So that's strike one. Strike two is that I didn't want a 3-way but my HD didn't have the one I needed in stalk...repeatedly...seriously?... expect in almond. Anyway, the instructions on the box (and identical on Leviton site) don't bother to say to remove the metal/copper tab above the ground in order to separate the switches. Realizing this, one has to struggle and mangle the thing to break it off, then it breaks above the base - look closely and you will see the two sides are connected and you have to get it break off at the base. I got it done and it works, but I don't know for how long.
Ultimately, I want to enlarge the box and put a dimmer and then a fan switch side-by-side, but that will have to wait until summer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LandL looks nice, problem with install
This pair of switches looks and feels exactly like what I needed. However, I experienced trouble with the installation.
I needed each of the switches to control two different circuits with different power sources. That meant I needed to break off the tab connecting the two power lugs. When I tried to do that, I found the tab was *much* stronger than those I've ever seen on similar switches. In fact, the end of the tab broke off, leaving the lugs connected by a thinner strip than before. I tried to use wire cutters to cut the remaining part. After I thought I had cut off enough, my continuity meter told me they were still connected. My last resort was to *disassemble* the switch, cut off the remaining parts of the tab that were hidden under the body of the switch, then painstakingly reassemble the switch.
In the end, it turned out well, but it was extremely frustrating to be unable to break that tab off. My workaround took a lot longer than it should have. The installation should have been simpler. I don't know why Leviton made it so difficult. Maybe it's supposed to be strong enough to endure combat conditions?
