    AUNT T'S -- anniston, AL   2/9/2013
    Switch itself is fine and simple to use, but getting the wiring to it proved monumental. Best if used PRIOR to finishing sheetrock, etc.
    KIT -- boulder, CO   11/2/2012
    I got the switch in time. It worked.
    RICHARD -- katy, TX   3/2/2012
    Great product, period. Perhaps the length of wire provided could be a bit longer, but we managed. We applied this to an already installed door, so that provided some challenges, but it installed and works just as it should. My wife is very pleased with the results, especially since she now can see easily in the closet that this was used for.
    TYLER -- sedona, AZ   5/7/2011

    MARK -- norco, CA   3/2/2011

    STEPHEN -- severna park, MD   1/3/2011
    works well. goes in with chisel and drill.
    STEVEN -- albany, GA   12/10/2010
    Nice quality switch at a great price. I got this switch to stop wasting closet bulbs. It turns them on & off automatically. Once installed if the actual switch fails it can be replaced without much trouble. All metal construction with plastic mechanism. Recomended

    This switch works fine, but be prepared to do some serious chopping to your doorframe to get this installed.
