Essential Info

Perfect for hard-to-reach lamps and small appliances, G.E.'s 52149 Handy Switch allows you to plug in a device to be switched right at the outlet. You will enjoy the benefits of lower energy consumption and the convenience of not having to plug in, and unplug your favorite lamps or appliances. Featured on the Handy Switch is an outlet which is ready for both grounded and polarized plugs, as well as a toggle switch for controlling the attached load. There is no programming needed for this switchable load controller and the installation couldn't be easier. Simply plug the device you wish to control into the Handy Switch. After, you will plug the Handy Switch into a convenient, standard, 120VAC outlet. Then, installation is complete and you are ready to test the Handy Switch.

The Handy Switch allows the user to switch devices that usually remain plugged in, but have no switch of there own. Even devices that do have switches (i.e. televisions and other home theater equipment) will consume less energy when switched by the Handy Switch. This is due to low level energy consumption that is occurring while you think the television is off, because it is still plugged in. When a device like a television is switched off by the Handy Switch, no voltage is allowed to flow through the televisions circuitry, preventing that low level energy consumption. Another great use for this device is seasonal lighting, as in switching Christmas lights or lighting decor. This device does not require programming, new wires, or batteries.

    The handy switches were used to turn Christmas decorations lights on and off rather than having to unplug them. The switches are very convenient to use.
    JOEL -- bothell, WA   10/26/2013

    Great way to disconnect small appliances without unplugging them.
    JEFFREY -- winston salem, NC   6/20/2013
    Works just as advertised
    GAIL -- new york, NY   4/22/2013
    Works well. Very good price.
    PATRICIA -- walton, KY   2/4/2013
    Great switches. Nice quality. Excellent price. Fast, but expensive shipping, especially if you buy just one. I bought (4) to spread the shipping cost, since the cost was the same for (4) as for one.
    Richard -- plano, Texas   11/3/2012
    Product works expected.
    RICHARD -- round rock, TX   9/29/2012
    I didn't know how much I needed the product until I realized the ground pin was coming loose on a battery charger I use frequently on my yard mower. By plugging it in using the plug-in-toggle switch I saved myself the job of replacing the plug, and cut down on the plugging and un-plugging.
    DRAGANA -- toronto, ON   11/18/2011
    Very good quality and very very useful product around the house. You can have instant switch. I got 5 of them and are using them all.
    JOSEPH D. -- alexandria, VA   10/3/2011
    Arrived quickly and as described.
