Can I use existing 3 switch plate? This would replace one of the switches. Is that do-able? Will switch fit, or is it wider than standard?? Thanks

Answer: 
Yes it will fit although you will probably have to break off those tabs you see on the sides. Keep in mind the microprocessor causes a delay when turning on the light and you may also experience some annoying flicker if you are using LED bulbs.

Answer: 
This switch will fit in a standard switch plate opening.
I have installed four of these side by side and re-used the same face plate that had been installed previously.
You will probably have to remove the tabs on the sides of the face of the switch itself for a proper fit inside a multi-switch mounting box. Just bend them back and forth a little with a pliers.

Answer: 
The Toggler dimmer will absolutely fit into a 3 gang switch plate as long as it's no larger than your standard traditional opening. The dimmer itself is a little wider, however there will not be any issues fitting them into a box with two other switches or dimmers.

For a single pole application with the Lutron logo legible and the UP arrow pointed up (and the dimmer slider on the right) your hot wire will be on the coppper pole on the bottom right side of the switch and the neutral wire on the brass pole on the bottom left side of the switch.
You will NOT find these instructions included in the packaging. Everyone's inclination was to wire everything to the right side of the switch or to attempt to run a third wire to connect to a 3-way that didn't exist. Overly complicated design. Read Less

When the switch is 'on' (in the down position) do the lights get brighter when you slide the toggle dimmer down? If so, then you clearly installed the switch upside down.

Answer: 
The switch was installed incorrectly. For a normal installation, you would want to use the two screws on the bottom of the dimmer across from one another as opposed to the two screws on the same side of the dimmer. If you are using it in a 3 way switch configuration you probably should read the directions but that is where you would use the two crews on the same side.

You wired the switch wrong. For single pole use, do not attach one of the wires to the screw opposite the different colored screw. It's in the directions for single pole use.

Sounds like your switch is installed upside down. Or you purchased a 3-way toggle dimmer and you hooked your switch leg to the wrong screw. Remember this, the little dimmer slider should always be on the right hand side of the toggle for dimming.

Answer: 
If you switch the wires in the back of the light switch that should fix your problem. There's three wires in the back, the one that needs to go to the specific screw and then the other two. If you just switch those other two around it'll work just the way you want it to.

Answer: 
This can be easily confused when using a 3-way dimmer in a single pole application. On the back of the dimmer, there should be three screw terminals, two brass and one copper. In a single pole application, you should only have wires connected to two of the three screws (one on brass and one on copper). If the wrong brass screw is chosen, the switch will work in the opposite way, as you are describing. To Read More

If the wrong brass screw is chosen, the switch will work in the opposite way, as you are describing. To fix this, all that would need to be done would be to remove the wire connected to the brass screw and tie it in to the other brass screw.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good, not great Installation was fine, function is fine, but sharp corners of the housing for the toggle switch protrude from the center of the switchplate. This means I need to careful when I turn the switch on and off (no casual swiping in the dark) to avoid a scrape. These could probably be filed down, but it seems to me an odd design flaw that should be addressed by the manufacturer and not the end user. July 3, 2016
