Update vintage Bryant or GE low voltage switches with new larger GE ones with two square buttons - no brackets required. Learn more. Low voltage Despard trigger switches below are also compatible with GE and Bryant systems. Note: Standard GE switches are available in ivory only.
Not Sure Which Switch to Buy?
If you need help choosing a replacement switch see our GE Switch Photo Guide.
Use the guide to located the picture of your switch and follow the link to buy the correct replacement part.
Please read all of the following carefully before placing your order, as only the "Bracket Mount" plates require mounting brackets.
If you opt to use New Style Snap-In switch plates, you won't need a bracket for your new GE switches, since the switches snap directly into the switch plates.
If you currently have the old, discontinued brackets and you're replacing your switches, selecting the New Style switch plates will save you money, since you won't need to buy new brackets for your replacement switches.
With the exception of the plate with 1 vertical switch shown here, new switches are mounted horizontally in the New Style plates.
Note: Always consult a licensed electrician before attempting any wiring jobs yourself.
Our Bracket Mount plates hold from 1 to 4 new switches, mounted vertically.
Note: The brackets sold on our site for these plates are not compatible with your original GE or Bryant switches. They are designed for use with new switches sold here and "Bracket Mount" wall plates only.
Use this series of brackets, switches, and switch plate covers if you currently have this style in your home, prefer the look of a vertical switch arrangement, or if you want the flexibility to leave the switches in place when you remove your switchplates, say, when repainting your walls.
The original style GE low voltage switches are no longer manufactured. If you need to buy new low voltage switches to finish your remodeling project or get your home ready to rent or sell, then you need to buy newer style switches and the wall plates that fit them.
These new GE switches are also the compatible replacement for your old Bryant brand low voltage switches.
Trying to find to find a 3-way GE low voltage switch? Good news! You don't need to buy a separate switch - simply wire any low voltage switch in parallel with the other switch (or switches) in a circuit that you want to use as a 3-way switch or a 4-way switch. When you set it up that way, any switch on the circuit will be able to turn the lights on or off. This is one of the convenient advantages of momentary low voltage light switches - all it takes is one brief touch to flip lights on or shut them off.
GE's newer white and gray switches have been discontinued. Ivory is the easiest replacement option. You can get replacement switches in white or gray by adding Pass & Seymour 1091 despard trigger switches, which are compatible with your GE components and may be used instead of GE brand light switches. The P&S switches are mounted in brackets and fit despard switch plates.
The brand new GE low voltage switches available above can not be used with your older, outdated switch plates or mounting brackets - as demonstrated in the photo here.
In this image, both an Old General Electric Switch and a New GE Switch are installed in the original (now discontinued) mounting straps or yokes.
With effort, the replacement GE switch was jammed into the old strap, but since they are thicker (protrude more) than the old switches, the switch plate will not mount flush with the wall. Instead, they will stick out about an 1/8" revealing your cut plaster - which, we're sure, is not the look you're going for.
Save yourself some time and order the new replacement switch plates that are compatible with your new low voltage switches.
