Q & A
No, these new switches snap right into the front of New Style Light Switch Covers so that no strap is required (unless using with Bracket Mount Wall Plates). The small wings on the sides of the switches will spring out once snapped into place and hold them in position.
I have three older low voltage switches in a bracket but one of them isn't working. Can I just replace the broken one with a new switch?
No. Do not install a new switch in a vintage strap. New switches are a bit larger than the old rocker switches and will be damaged if you try jamming them into your original bracket. In addition, the buttons can become stuck in the on or off position and burn out both the switch and the relay.
