Another image added to the free Gallery: Four-Way Switch

It looks like the yellow jacket is inside the junction box. Which it shouldn’t be.

I think about a 1/4" should be inside, but not in all the places it is shown in the image.

You guys tell me what you think?

And I see the bare wire outside the box.

The image still doesn’t show the neutral splice at the box for the 4 way.

Just get rid of the yellow jacket entirely. It adds nothing to the drawing. Add a neutral splice in the middle for the 4-way box. You don’t need 12 gauge wire remove that label.

How did members police the image? Nothing really changed between the original image and the “new” image. They are virtually the same.

You changed the light bulb from an incandescent to a CFL, which are getting phased out.

That is where the confusion came from. We needed to update the image for use in a new course. We are sending a correction to the artist today and hope to have it updated early next week. The image will most likely never be used by the membership as it is intended to illustrate how the traveler is used in a four-way switch and what to look for during an inspection.

Right, why the CFL? It is now also dated.

Ahhhh, now I understand the resistance. There is probably going to be a fee from your artist to change the image, as opposed to the corrections that were made from the original “new” image.

You should asked me, I reversed the image and removed the background with just my I-phone…FOR FREE!! LOL!!

The inspector is not going to see the wiring. They are only going to see if it functions correctly.

Also different brands of switches may use a different arrangement of terminal pairs, some could be left right, top bottom etc.

The wiring configuration has been updated in the original post.
