Inline Dimmer Cord Switch - Leviton Brand Full Range Lamp Dimmer, Rotary Knob, Feed Trhu

Brown or Ivory (Beige), Great with Cloth Wire - 2-wire cords only!!!!

Leviton Inline switches are durable and dependable, and are the top of the line as far as dimmer switches are concerned. What sets them apart? 1) Smooth function: steady increases and decrease of the light optput. 2) Full range: these will get your bulb as low and as high is it is capable of. 3) Consistent output: cheap dimmers are known for flickering and flashing, especially with today's higher efficiency bulbs. As long as your bulb is marked as "dimmable" (and of course, any incandescent filament), these dimmers will work beautifully. 4) Longevity: Look inside the dimmer, there's a lot going on in there! Don't wast time with cheap dimmers that will fail or fry up in a short period of time.

All of our Edison bulbs (LED and incandescent) are fully compatible with these dimmers. They look great on dimmers, being able to watch the filaments rise and fall with the turn of the knob, and you get only the amount of light you need, when you need it.

Dimmer function: Yes these will also turn the bulb on and off! Rotation starts in the "off" position, as you turn it clockwise it clicks "on", and then you have the ability to rotate the dial to your desired brightness level.

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.

This listing is for the Leviton Dimmer switch only (a quantity of 1 = 1 switch!!! Wire shown as an example, can be purchased separately!!!)

    On/Off In-Line Dimmer Switch

    Snake Head had what I couldn't find elsewhere in southern Michigan to fit a 1970 cactus lamp. Made me very happy. Shipped ultra-fast and a reputable brand name. Perhaps this mood lamp will induce my wife to be more loving.

    Excellent dimmer

    Excellent dimmer & switch.

    One problem I didn't think of, is the dimmer's in and out holes are made for the lightly insulated cord.
    The cord to my lamp is not lightweight and I have to make adjustments to the in and out holes --via a Dremel grinder.

    so glad this tech exists

    I built a lamp and bought fancy LED bulbs for it and they were much brighter than anticipated. Installed this in-line dimmer in 5 mins and it’s absolutely perfect. Dims the bulbs without flickering and with good range. Highly recommend this product.

    Product works well for standing lamp

    Posted by Stephen Ox on Oct 8th 2021

    I bought this dimmer to be able to adjust a unique cut glass lamp shaped as a bird house on an antique post from the 1800's in our sunroom. The switch worked very well, was small enough to hide and was able to take the 2 wire cloth wrapped twisted wire. The dimmer has good range from high to low, stays on as it moved from low to high and lets you know that it is off with a click. It installed in a few minutes.

    LED dimmers are needed for Dimmable LED lights

    Posted by Bill on Oct 4th 2021

    This product is marked INCAD ONLY and for good reason: it is a traditional "leading edge" phase dimmer suitable for incandescent lights only. Your guy I talked with said it should work with any light labeled Dimmable. I was switching a string of 6 Pilar lights from incandescent to Dimmable LED, and had already snipped the cord where it was soldered to the old dimmer. Having noted the INCAD marking on the new dimmer I called and got your assurance, and wired it up. It works but not fully. For dimmable LEDs to work well, one needs a "trailing edge" phase dimmer. Use this one for LEDs and you will get less than good results.

    ****REPLY FROM SNAKE HEAD VINTAGE: Hi Bill, I do remember talking to you and I stand by what I said: for the vast majority of situations, including many, many of our own customers over the past 10 years (other reviews can attest) these dimmers work just fine for most LED bulbs marketed as "dimmable". That is the entire point of dimmable LED bulbs, that they can be used with traditional dimmers. Customers buying dimmable LED bulbs are not going out and installing specialty dimmers throughout their house, they are using them on traditional dimmers (just like ours) and they are working just fine.

    It sounds like you have a unique situation, are dimming multiple lights (6) and even the link you included talks about the math that needs to go into dimming a large number of LED bulbs. I'm sorry this dimmer didn't work for you, and I still stand by the guarantee we offer all our customers: if it doesn't work for you then we'll take it back for a 100% refund. You have decided to keep it, so my assumption is that maybe this dimmer is working better than any other you have tried?

    To our other customers: these are very good, high quality dimmers, that will work with all incandescent bulbs, and MOST dimmable LED bulbs, as long as the bulb manufacturer is reputable and you don't have other extenuating circumstances (like a large number of bulbs on a string light). And if it doesn't work for you for any reason, we will take it back for a refund.
