4. way switch help
If you install 3. switchs to controle one Light I know they go like this,.

The first switch is a 3. way swicth and the second switch is a 4. way switch and the third switch is a 3. way switch then the Light.

I would like to know in all switchs the Ground Screw is Green but is it ever Brass or anything els?

Should be green--but could be a different color--the grounding screw will be attached to the metal frame of the switch--

Post a picture or link to the exact switch---

The ground screw should be green or hex shaped, never brass.
