Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Techie Not for me
This dimmer switch was ONLY for in-line placement. Their description didn't indicate so. For my use it wouldn't work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AVMCM Perfect replacement dimmer for vintage lamps
I am very satisfied with this product. My daughter picked up an old lamp with a dimmer switch on it, but after a few days the dimmer quit working. I searched everywhere for a switch that would fit the lamp with no luck. I just happened to be doing a random web search and found this switch on HD's web site. This switch was a little bit bigger than the original, but I was able to get it to fit by trimming the cardboard sleeve down a little bit. Lamp works perfect and the switch looks like it was always with the lamp.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kczeezer Failed on install
This product was delivered as promised, however, upon install it failed. This was to replace a dimmer switch and fit into the lamp base just fine. Still, when I turned on the lamp, the switch shorted out. My bad I didn't return it, but lesson learned. I'll stick with more "closer to home" suppliers.

The picture and description of the product was different than what I received. The product I receive would not work for my purposes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hhh300 Excellent Replacement
This switch was a perfect replacement for my banker's desk lamp. I like it better than the original two-position switch, which only had a "low" and "high" setting. The replacement works like a standard dimmer switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richvegas Just what I needed
Like looking for a needle in a haystack, these switches come on a lot of lamps but are not easy to find if a replacement is needed. Even on the web. I found it at Home Depot web site. Not available in the store, don't know why not. But it was a direct replacement and installed easy and the lamp works great. Shipping was steep but I had no choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jondapicam A good replacement dimmer switch
I bought this to replace a worn dimmer switch in a 200W floor lamp. Even though it was redesigned from what the picture was; once I got down the wrong diagram and identified the wires in the lamp, it didn't take long to replace the dimmer switch. It functions like a dimmer should, but makes the modern LED bulbs flicker at certain levels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by myelin Great product!
I used this dimmer to control the intensity of heat and light for my custom made Grande Lava Lamp. I mounted the switch inside of the Lava Lamp base, which is subject to a tremendous amount of heat. The switch is holding up great to the heat and allows me to adjust the heat and light to the lamp, allowing me to control the flow. Awesome!
