          This 3 way switch is the EASIEST I have ever installed. Strip the wire to the specified length on the strip gauge (part of the switch) and install. That’s it! Great product.

          This is going to change the electrical industry
          I my opinion this is the best invention since the light bulb. The unique back wiring with lever locking design is a huge time saver. This device can be completely installed in about a minute using only wire strippers and a screwdriver. Leviton thought of everything with this design. The locking mechanisn holds the wires very securely. There are no exposed live connections when wired properly, but Leviton provides test points at each connection so you can probe each wire without disconnecting it. No exposed connections means that there is no need to wrap yape around live terminal screws The ears of the device have alignment tabs that interlock with neighboring devices to ensure a neat, level and evenly spaced installation.

          Excellent and Great Looking 3-way Rocker Switch by Leviton
          This is an excellent and great looking 3-way switch by Leviton under the Decora Edge brand. It is rated at 15 Ampere. It is a modern rocker style switch that provides a smooth on/off toggle. Since it is a 3-way switch, it can be installed in combination with another 3-way switch to control a single set of lights. It looks great behind a standard white duplex wall plate. Installation instructions are printed on the package and it is truly easy as push, click and done.

          Nice update to a reliable standard 3-way switch. Easier to wire, easier to test, less likely to short out.
          Leviton has been updating some of their classic switches and outlets and this is the new style 3-way switch. Instead of screws or "back stabs" it comes with lever operated connections that hold the wire tightly. They are all color coded and have their meaning embossed in the plastic (black is "com" red is "trvl" and green is "gnd") The instructions say it is for 12 gauge and 14 gauge copper only. I would only use these with solid wire. It will self-ground to a metal box if installed correctly (you can see the metal ground strap on the back). It has UL marks on the package and on the device. It is labeled for 120V/277V 15A max and AC only. There is a strip gage on the back. I do like that if you wire it properly, there is no exposed wire or screw that is energized. Much less likely to "bite" you or ground out to the side of a metal box.

          I really like these switches
          We've been DIY remodeling for close to 40 years. Through the years we'd occasionally use an electrician. We had one I liked and trusted and I followed him like a puppy dog, just soaking up his wisdom. For whatever reason - I can't remember now, he was not a fan of the push in connections on switches and outlets and would only use the screws. I've followed his advice ever since (and I've always hated sticking in the little screwdriver to release the wire when changing a receptacle (How many times have you poked you hand doing that?). This new Leviton mechanism has changed my mind. I don't think I'll ever go back to the screw type except in a pinch. Release the tab to open the internal clamping part, insert the wire and push down the tab. Done. Their little marketing phrase "Push Click Done" says it all. Now there are no exposed metal parts (other than GND) in your boxes whatsoever. Two enthusiastic thumbs up

          Time saver!
          These are fantastic and perfect for the professional and DIYer. I am replacing all the old style light switches with these decorative ones and they are a breeze to install. These secure the wires a lot better than the old style switches where you stab the wires in the back of the switch. The wires are also a lot easier to remove with the flip of a switch. The also are safer to use in my opinion because there are no screws on the switch to shock you when you have to work on a live circuit. These have a built in strip gauge however no built in wire stripper like others. I love these and I think you will too. These accept 12 and 14 gauge wire.

          Leviton Decora Edge 15 Amp 3-Way Switch
          It really is that simple. There is a strip gauge to make sure you get the length correct and the holes will only fit the wire and not wide enough to be able to put any of the insulation in as well. The tabs were hard to open as the springs holding them closed and subsequently the wire in place very tightly. They made a snap when closed so you knew they were locked down. The connections are labeled clearly and this device is for use with Copper wire only. Aluminum wire is not correct use. I pulled on the 12 and 14 AWG and both were in there securely. The connections are color coded and make it easier to get it right for the DIYer. I like the tongue and groove portion evenly spaces the devices apart for multi-gang boxes and there are no exposed wires or connections to short out against the box or other outlets or switches. The installation was quite easy and fast. I like this product very much and highly recommend it.

          GREAT 3-WAY SWITCH
          There are a lot of good things to say about this switch – and if you read the instructions, many of them can be found there. However, the most welcome is a push pin system that relieves the tension on the wire insertion points by merely opening then closing a lever. Those who have used older receptacles will know what I’m talking about – especially if stranded wire was used. Just twist and insert here. This system pretty much makes connecting wires effortless – and it works for both 14 and 12 AWG wire! The color coding and lettering helps to de-mystify 3-way wiring. Just follow the instructions. Identify the load wire (going to what you are turning on) and the source wire (where the power is coming from) and pretty much what’s left is the traveler wire between switches (usually red). The white wires are typically neutral and bare wire, ground. Keep in mind that there are several different wiring configurations for 3-way circuits and the forgoing is not always the case. Variations occur, especially in older (existing) wiring schemes so be sure to test everything. Who knows what someone might have done before you got there. And even though you should be working with the power off, assume that all circuits are live. Don’t want you getting hurt! Any question at all, call an electrician. Lastly, the fact that there are no longer, side terminals makes this a little safer to install – particularly in a metal box or if you accidentally grab the sides of the device without the power turned off. And, generally speaking, rear entry points allow for more clearance and orderliness of wires tucked in behind the receptacle. (See photos) Enjoy your 3-Way Switch.

          Leviton Switch: Push, Click, Done
          This switch is a general purpose, single pole, rocker switch that can be installed in both single- and multi-gang boxes. It is described as the simplest and safest switch ever. There are no exposed metal parts which makes it safer. The switch itself is color-coded for wire clamping levers along with two test ports. There is a breakaway tab at the top and bottom of the switch to accommodate both midway sized wall plates and standard sized. The dimensions are: 4.2” H, 1.3” W, and 0.99” D.

          Strip, insert & flip closed, it’s that simple!
          This, Leviton Decora Edge 15 Amp 3-Way Switch, White, is one of the quietest devices I’ve come a crossed! This switch is pretty simple to install and the texture feels like a higher-end device. The ability to use the flip levers to insert the wiring is a major plus! I use to wrap my devices with electrical tape for added protection. It’s no longer needed with the lever connections. Great product with excellent connection option!
