Flip light switches?


I meant I had 2 dimmers total in the house. One is rotary and the other is sliding, but you slide down to turn it on and slide up to turn it off. I havent had a chance to flip these lights yet, still unpacking and purging... And some were screwed in so tight they cracked at the screw in the middle. I need to find a source to buy switch plate/outlet covers that are nonstandard since once they are taken off they will surely not be able to be used again.

For recepticles, I put ground hole up for those that are controlled by a wall switch, all others have ground hole down.

But it's interesting that in most Catalogues, and in Spec. Grade and Hospital grade and in Hospitals, the "Ground" terminal is displayed on top. (No matter what) Don't Drink and Drive!!!
