4 Way Switches

Ive been around the world trying to find 4 way replacement switches for our home. Theres up to 4 light swiches in each room of our home. The guy that built it 40 years ago put in all kinds of bells, whistles, guages and valves, right down to the nite lites in the heat vents to the phone jacks in the sub basement. Where do I find These four ways ??? Im able to find 3-ways all day long. Thanks Bruce

At our local Home Depot they are in the bin right next to the 3-ways...

You do realize that regardless of the number of light switches controlling a circuit, two of them are always 3-ways and the remainder are 4-ways (assuming of course more than 2 switches are controlling the circuit)?

If you can't find them at your local big box store, try an electrical supply house.

Im electrically AC illiterate, Thanks for the tip. Our home depot doesnt stock them and I must have talked to the wrong helpful hardware man there also.

Unless this is a low voltage system requiring special switches you should find what you need at any electrcial store.

It's hard to believe that any Home Depot in the world doesn't stock 4-way switches. They are a pretty basic supply.
