Simple question about dimmer switch install

I have a dimmer switch that was originally used on a 3-way switch. I now want to install it on a single switch - is that possible or do I have to buy another dimmer?

You should be able to use it as a dimmer in a single pole switch application.

You will need to determine which two are the travelers and use just one and wire nut the other one off.

Thanks PJ - I thought so but wanted another opinion! Wired it just as you said and it's working!
