Will this 3-way switch wiring work?
1 Attachment(s)
I need to re-run some wires for a pair of lights on a stairwell. I cannot run new wires to the lights themselves, as they are in a finished portion of the house. However, I have access to the switches, and to the runs between the switches.

Will the wiring in the picture work AND meet code?

Yes, it looks fine.

Thanks! I was racking my brain earlier trying to figure out an "easy" way to make this work without having to run a gazillion feet of wire.

Pigtail those two wires for the lights on the left hand switch. Don't put the two of them under the switch screw.
