Product Description

Inline Cord Switch - Heavy Duty (up to 10 amps) Rocker Switch, (on/off snap toggle)

Authentic Vintage Design - Made in USA

Recommended for use with our Round 3-wire cloth covered cords (or any round 16-18 gauge cord). The opening in these is circular and will fit round cord best, although 2-wire twisted cords and parallel (flat cords) will still work, there will just be more room around the opening.

This black inline rocker switch is heavy duty in terms of how much current it can handle, (but no larger than our other switches!), and looks great on all kinds of lamps, lighting, fans or radios, and a variety of other small appliances! Great vintage design, you'll have a hard time telling this is a modern production heavy duty cord switch and not something right off of Edison's workbench!

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 black inline rocker switch only (a quantity of 1 = 1 switch!!! Wire shown as an example, can be purchased separately!!!)

  • UL Listed
  • Made in USA
  • 10amp 125volt AC (5amp at 250 volt)
  • 2-1/2" X 1-1/4"
  • Works with all of our cords, although round cord is recommended

  1. Good Experience 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 8th 2021

    Easy to install, should last many years. Arrived quickly, reasonable price. Much better than the in line switch this lamp came with

  2. Switches that make "clonk" at night 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 27th 2021

    Just love this switch - great quality. It has a good heft to it and I just love the haptics and the look of it.

  3. Great replacement for 60 year old switch 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 14th 2021

    This switch is the perfect upgrade for the 60 year old switch on my Leica slide projector. The openings fit the existing lamp cord and the screw terminals could not have been easier to connect. It's quiet which is a great improvement over the popping and intermittent operation of the old inline switch.

  4. Exactly what was needed for vintage lighting restoration 5 Star Review

    Prefect for vintage light restoration, fit cloth wrapped wiring perfectly.

  5. A good buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 5th 2020

    This is a good buy. The product is as advertised. The seller responded quickly to questions. The delivery was slow, not the sellers fault. Product was shipped USPS Priority Mail with a one two-day delivery. Delivery was four days.

    It should be noted that if a three wire (16-2 /w gnd ) is employed , the ingress and egress ports will be needed to drill out to 5/16". This should be done very slowly, at slow speed and with minimal pressure as the plastic is brittle and cracks easily.

    Overall, this is a good product. A satisfactory purchase.

  6. Perfect Fit 5 Star Review
