How to use two way switch

Welcome to our tutorial on how to use a two-way switch! If you’re an electrician or DIY enthusiast, you’ve probably encountered these switches before, but you may not be fully familiar with all of their capabilities. In this guide, we’ll show you how to use a two-way switch to control an electrical circuit. We’ll also provide you with a list of the tools and materials you’ll need to get started, including a steel rule, plier, awl, tester, combination plier, cable insulation knife, mallet, and a screw driver. With these tools on hand, you’ll be ready to tackle the task of building a circuit with a two-way switch. We’ll start by preparing a wiring diagram and drawing it on the board with the right measurements. From there, we’ll set the clips and wires in place, following the diagram to make sure everything is in the right spot. After that, we’ll test the circuit using a multi-meter and supply electricity to see how it works. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced electrician, this tutorial will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to master the use of a two-way switch. Let’s get started!

Equipment and tools: Steel rule, plier, awl, tester, combination plier, cable insulation knife, mallet, screw driver


  • Two way switch 02 no’s
  • Batten Holder 01 no’s
  • Sunk Box 02 no’s
  • Round Block 01 
  • 1/1.3 Red Wire
  • 1/1.3 Blue Wire
  • Bulbs 01

Procedure: Prepare the wiring diagram according to the layout diagram and draw on the board with the right measurements. Then, set 1 ½ clips for three wires and 1 ¼ clips for two wires on the board. Afterward, set the 1/1.3 red wire and 1/1.3 blue wire on the clips. Test the circuit with a multi-meter and supply electricity. 

Conclusion: After giving electric supply, the bulb can be switched on and off from the both the switches.
