I find it perfectly acceptable to be enraged at this.

Wasn't too funny as a content. Even less funny as a comment.

This is the only reason I'm studying to become a electrician, so I can travel the world and fix these kinds of problems...

I really hate people who say to above aforementioned. It's a serious mental disorder.

1. Install new set of lightswitches on other side of room.

2. Turn the other one off.

3. Use that one to turn it back on.

4. Fix'd

That is just about the most pointlessly time-consuming solution to a problem I've ever heard.
10/10 Would waste time on.

That can be fixed with just a screwdriver. Don't forget to remove the fuses beforehand
User avatar #6 to #5 - AngusFTW (06/18/2013) [-]
There are no fuses........
#7 to #6 - Mutador (06/18/2013) [-]
There has to be a fusebox somewhere. Anyway, the point is to make sure there's no electricity in the wires when you go fiddling with the wires.
User avatar #9 to #7 - AngusFTW (06/18/2013) [-]
They have circuit breakers, some where around the house. You don't really need to de-energize the circuit, it is only 24volts. Just a nice shock. All you would really have to do would be take it out, leave one hand in your pocket and fix it with one hand, so you do not complete the circuit.
#14 to #9 - Mutador (06/18/2013) [-]
Well sure, if it's 24V then it's fine, just that wall switches usually have high voltage AC going through them. Double switches can be built in different ways though, hopefully this is just a matter of moving around some wires, if the insides of the switch is wired like the ERM351S in this picture.
User avatar #17 to #14 - AngusFTW (06/18/2013) [-]
Actually, you are right. They do run at 120V. Which is much worse than 24V and as bad as higher voltages. (With 120V it's not enough to throw your body out of the circuit, so you are stuck in place. Which could lead to heart failure, and even death.)
Anyways, with switches, you have them wired in series across "sections" in the house. Lets say you are setting up wiring in a bedroom. Usually, you will have a switch right when you walk in. You would end up having to purchase, 14-3 romex, and 14-2 if you would like to hook up a receptical as well, with these wires you would have to hook them up with Common to the black terminal on the switch, then jumper off one of your lines to a receptical, to make it switched that is. All this typing made me confused, I may be wrong on some parts. I am just too lazy to correct anything.

in eu it's 230V. 230V! that **** could cook you.
#20 to #19 - Mutador (06/18/2013) [-]
Yes, cook, an appropriate term, however, the line of possible death begins at 50V
#28 to #20 - fastbackmustang (06/18/2013) [-]
actually all it takes is less than an amp to throw off a heart beat and kill you as for the switch its probably a 3 way i had a guy make me go through thew house to try and get all the 3 ways to switch the same way i wasted an hour of my life trying to explain to him that all it takes is one person flipping the switch to **** it up
#38 to #28 - Mutador (06/18/2013) [-]
Yes, much less than an amp, but a human body is quite the resistor, so it also takes a bit more than a few volts to make enough current move through our body.

as an electrician all you need is to remove the cover and clip the switch on the other was round also you dont need to urn off the power or "remove the fuses"
#25 to #5 - anon (06/18/2013) [-]
or you might have another switch for the same light and you can just switch that one and the switch this one

**** off
User avatar #35 - mookiez (06/18/2013) [-]
Take it out and flip it... This doesn't take any amount of electrical knowledge to do...
User avatar #23 - XXBIOHAZARDXX (06/18/2013) [-]
This made me very uncomfortable.
