Questions & Answers

can this be in stalled without going thru the door casing?

Asked by: diy1
Yes, the box and escutcheon are for all level codes. Some codes only require the wires and wire connections to be covered, so rubber wire conduit may be used. I installed just the small button-part one in a china cabinet (made my own wood cover), then covered the wires well, then hid the wires well.

2 doors, and 2 switches

How would this work with 2 doors and 2 switches? I want to be able to open either door and have the light come on.
Asked by: jkuchtaofmi
You connect the poles in parallel, so that any switch will close the circuit. They are of the "normally closed" type, meaning they close the circuit when the button is not depressed -- that is, the door is opened.

Is the switch normally ON or OFF?

I need a switch that is normally OFF. If this is a normally ON switch can it be modified to be normally OFF?

CAN THIS SWITCH BE INSTALLED WITHOUT USING THE METAL BOX ?

CAN THIS SWITCH BE INSTALLED WITHOUT USING THE METAL BOX ?
Asked by: AJ
No, because the wires need to be connected in the box.

10 Amp Single-Pole AC/DC Push Button Door Switch (1-Pack) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 46.

I have installed 2 of these on closet doors to replace pull-chain light fixtures. In my opinion, these are the perfect light switch for such an application because you never need to think about turning the light on or off. The installation on an existing door frame is not easy, but worth the effort and time. One bit of difficulty is that there is not much room inside the box for wire connectors, so they need to be small. I have lived in 2 houses with these switches (my installation in the current house) over the last 15 years and would not be without them.

It was nice that you had this switch so that we could install a pantry light with door control. This worked perfect for this job. I liked that it is encased in it's own metal box and that it is flexible with mounting options. The box was just big enough to contain the wires.

They work great, but it is a little tricky creating the hole in the frame necessary to insert the electrical box behind the switch. I broke through the drywall on the first.

Switch enclosure seems very rugged but the mounting screws were pretty small. I had to provide a metal cable clamp to secure the wires in the box after removing the knock out plug.
