I had a hard time finding a replacement for the door switch in our old farm house. All the big box stores had were plastic replacements and they were not rated or inexpensive. I found this on line and not only is it UL rated, but it comes with a wiring box and the mount makes the depth of the switch adjustable. It was good quality and installed in a snap with the box making it easier to access in the future if need be. I am pleased with the switch and would recommend it to others. It is good for new or old work and includes all the screws for install and mounting.

I thought it would be cool if they made a switch to turn the light on and off when the door opened and closed... Searched on amazon and sure enough they do!

Little bit of a pain to install in an existing door frame with out messing up any sheet rook, but i got it in and it works great. Highly recommended

I didn't install this so I can't vouch for the actual quality of it. The problem I had was that the box and faceplate are too wide to fit inside my interior door jambs. I have 1-3/8" interior doors, which means the area of the door jamb that it installs into is 1-3/8" also. Since the box is 1-3/8" and the faceplate is 1-1/2", it will either stick out proud of the door jamb edge, or you will have to route out a section of the door stop. If you have a removable door stop then you could remove it and install the faceplate partially under the stop. But my jambs are a single piece MDF jamb so I can't remove the stop.

I also ordered the Gardner Bender #GSW-SK model, which works fine for me. The faceplate is 1-1/4: wide so it leaves me with an extra 1/8" of jamb to hide the side of the faceplate behind.

Ordered this switch March 12, 2012 and it failed a year later almost exactly to the date when it was installed. Closet light would not turn on.

I ordered a replacement from Amazon but this time Lee Electric 209DN 600-Watt Door Light Switch. It is less expensive and the switch is rated at 125v 6A. The Leviton is rated lower at 125V 3A. Probably why it didn't last very long.

So happy with Amazon shipping time with Prime. We did not have to use a flashlight long.

Switch was delivered on time and was as described. Installation was difficult as the Leviton switch was considerably larger that the existing switch I was replacing. Once the switch was installed it worked perfect. Good product and the price was right.

Absolutely what the doctor ordered. I will say it is somewhat of an advanced install. The box is deeper than the typical door jam and you will have to cut it deep enough into the stud to recess the box. If you are the type to tackle running electrical then you can do this install just fine. I can tell you the next time i build a house these will be pre-installed on every closet and pantry door.

solid constriction but the switch failed after 3 years, I didn't want to order the whole thing again just for the switch.I found a Carling P267T-1D-RND MTL switch that is rated for 6 amps rather then 3, the button doesn't push in as far as the original so it takes a little trial and error to get it right but seems to work good. hopefully this will last longer then the leviton one.

Installed this in the jam of my pantry door. We were constantly turning the light on every time we opened the door. This is the answer. I mounted it just above the tope hinge and it works perfectly. The switch and mounting plate seem heavy duty but the wiring box is thin but adequate.
