Inline Cord Switch - Leviton Rocker Style Feed Thru Switch
Inline Cord Switch - Leviton Brand Rocker Style Feed Through Switch, For Lamp wire, Fans, Lights, etc.
Black, White, Brown or Ivory (Beige), Great with Cloth Wire
Leviton Inline switches are solid, they're rugged, they're the best quality available... and they'll turn your stuff on and off!
Feed through switches are easy to work with: The shell unscrews with 2 screws. Your cord (make sure you have no power going to it!) will have 2 wires, the "neutral" wire will bypass the switch, just run it along the space in the bottom. Cut your "hot" wire in half, strip your ends (we recommend a small piece of electrical tape when using our cloth wire), and attach one end of your "hot" wire to one screw terminal, and attach the other end to the other. Done: lights on, lights off!
This listing is for the Leviton Inline switch only (a quantity of 1 = 1 switch!!! Wire shown as an example, can be purchased separately!!!)
- UL Listed
- Top Quality Leviton Brand Model 5410
- 3amp 125volt AC
- 2-1/2" X 1-5/8"
- Works with all of our 2-wire cloth covered electrical wire (twisted and parallel flat wire)
- If you want to use these with our 3-wire cords, you must do so at your own discretion, or the discretion of your electrician. The openings of the switch will have to be slightly enlarged to fit the extra diameter of the 3-wire cord.
I have not installed these inline switches yet but I intend to. I plan to use them on two antique lamps I am restoring in order to minimize the vintage electrical mechanisms on the lamps as well as to provide a safer and easier way to turn on/off the lamps.
The switch was easy to install and was exactly what I needed. It has worked without any problems.
The switch worked for my chandelier which did not have a wall on/off switch.
This is exactly what I needed. Easy to install, clear directions.
This is a quality in-line switch. It was easy to install and it does the job.
Roomy, easy to connect, solid. This is my third switch on this particular cord. The previous two had screws that failed.
The only "negative" (not really) point for me: the rocker switch could be slightly larger to accommodate big thumbs.
All in all an excellent product
My brother rewired my lamp for me, looks very nice. The only strange part was the hole in the side of the top part where the bulb goes. Mysterious. The lamp works very nicely and does not overheat. :)
This Leviton switch has a solid feel, positive switch action and was easy to install. Delivery was hampered by USPS delays making the news but the package was very well packed and arrived intact. I would recommend this switch over others I have seen that feel flimsy and use a wire pinching technique rather than screw terminals. I use fabric covered, vintage style cord and the pinch style switches don't work well.
Good product, but sometimes the internal solder joints are not properly done, and I have to resolver them. I’ve bought dozens, and I’ve only had to do a few.
Overall, good product.
