Hall way lighting

Can anyone provide a diagram showing how to wire a hallway/3way switch so I can help my brother install a light in the addition he is building? Thanks !!!!

I assume that you are wiring a single light with a 3-way switch at each end of the hallway. There are about eight correct and a hundred incorrect ways to do it.

Try this site, although you have even more options. Almost any book on home wiring will have good diagrams, and you should have a couple of such books before doing any home wiring anyway. There are a few hundred electrical codes that you should be aware of before you start. Safe and legal electrical work is much more than just connecting wires.

Thumbs up many thanks

That will solve my problem. I appreciate your concern for safety. I simply couldn't remember the safe way to wire the switch. I have significant experience with witing but it has been a few years now and I felt better getting qualified assistance than ringing it out with a meter. Thank you very much, cheers
