three way switch

Someone way back told me how to make a three way switch with a receptacle hooked into the same circuit



Has anyone done this??



thanks John Bauman

Not much info. But if you are asking if you can use three way switches to run a receptacle, sure you can. It gets wired the same as any light circuit. You use a receptacle instead of a light fixture.

If you are asking if you can wire a receptacle from a three way switch, the answer is maybe.

If the three way switch box has a neutral running through it then you can wire a receptacle from the box. If this switch box has the always hot end of the three way circuit (as opposed to the switched hot end of the three way circuit) then the receptacle can be always hot.
