Answer: 
In a 3 way switch you will have 1 common wire and 2 traveler wires. The common(hot) will go on the dark colored screw and the travelers will go on the brass or silver colored screws. Both switches should be wired with the wires on each end on the same screws.

Hello tom, I’m Chris from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.

Hello tom, I’m Chris from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
This is actually much easier to see in a diagram, (supplied with each switch), than explained in words, but I will try.
Three way switches are used in pairs where each switch can independently control the same light, or set of lights. In order to do this, one switch has a power lead coming in attached to the black screw, and 2 “traveler” leads each attached to a brass colored screw going to the other switch.
That other switch accepts the travelers from the first using the brass screws, and sends power out to the load from the black screw.
There are no neutral wires attached to the switches as only the load requires them. There should also be ground wires attached to each switch at their green screws.
I hope this helps,
Chris.

Answer: 
Good day,
The 5603 is a 3-way. Technically, a 3-way switch is a single pole, double throw switch.
