Single pole light switches control power to light fixture(s) or power receptacle(s) from one location and are the most common type of switch found in the home. The most common style of switch is the toggle switch but it can look pretty tired and dated, lacking any sense of style.
In this tutorial we will review how to replace and upgrade the toggle switch with a sleek rocker style switch and cover some of the issues you may encounter in the process. For example, how to remove an old painted on cover plate without damaging the painted wall, or what to do when a new cover plate does not cover a gap or old paint line from the original cover plate. Of course there is also the issue of how to safely and properly wire the switch.
No problem I have all these issues covered for you in this tutorial!
