Not the same quality as the one it replaced
I have a floor lamp that has swing arms, this is the 2nd time 8 years I have had to replace this switch. The Commercial Electric 540 691 3 way socket turn knob style switch is not what I would call sturdy nor well made, but it gets the job done. I doubt it will last more than a handful of years. If you are replacing a socket in a lamp like mine (see pics) be forewarned it's not easy! Getting the wire pulled thru the tubing even just an inch, is very tricky & time consuming. Make sure you have thin long nosed pliers to help move the wire at the junction points of the tubing. There is very little room to work to install this so you need to pull out the wire a little just to work on it. What I thought would be a 5 min. fix turned into a 1 hour struggle! Getting stranded wire around the screws was very tricky until I tined the stranded wire first with a soldering iron, fed it thru the outer lamp holder & then hooked the wire to install it under the screws of the socket. Once you have finished the connection you then have to pull the wire back thru the tubing as there is no room in the socket for extra wire. I hope the tips and this review helps you with your project, if so please check the thumbs up button, thanks! MikeTheReviewer

    Defective
    It's supposed to be a 3-way switch, but it's only 2-way. One of the switch positions that is supposed to be "on" is actually "off", so you have a switch that has two ons and two offs. I intended to buy a Leviton, and based on Home Depot's website they supposedly had many in stock at my store, but in fact they had no Leviton 3-way switches and only this crappy Home Depot house brand at a higher price.

      Easy to install, good socket
      I just replaced 2 sockets with two different three-way sockets. This one was far superior and easier to install then the Leviton brand socket. It’s easy to slide the wire in behind the screw and tighten it. Seems well-made. Just installed them so will take some time to see how long they last. Very easy install.
