Do you sell a 2-way switch? Yes, if you want a switch that can turn on a single light from 2 locations (top and bottom of stairs, opposite ends of hallways, across large rooms), then you need to buy a 3-way switch which we sell in both toggle, Decora rocker, and Despard variations. A 2-way switch is really called a 3 way light switch.
Do I need to buy narrow switches if I have to use a narrow switch plate? No, the size of the switch doesn't change. For the same reason you do not need to buy narrow electrical boxes, either. The switches are always a standard size and still need the same amount of room in the wall box, so the only difference is the size of the switch plate covering them on the wall surface.
Will I need to purchase oversized switches and outlets if I'm installing oversized light switch covers? No, you do not need any special switches if increasing the size of your wall plates. Electrical outlets and light switches will always stay the same size - only the overall dimensions of your switchplates will change. So no matter what size covers you need to use - tall, deep, jumbo, narrow, short - your switches will always fit the openings and screw holes on your wall plates.
I want to locate my switches in the dark. Do I buy a pilot light switch or just a lighted switch? The difference between a pilot lighted switch and regular lighted switch is when the light is showing. Pilot switches are illuminated when ON to help remind you when an out-of-sight piece of equipment is running, such as an outdoor fountain or a sump pump in the basement. Regular lighted switches, sometimes called locator switches, are illuminated when OFF so that they glow softly in the dark making them easier to find.
