Product Information

The Cord Thumb Switch is an inline component that easily fits into the palm of your hand allowing you to easily turn your fixture on and off with the flip of your thumb. From table lamps and sconces to pendants, this hard plastic component is a great addition for any DIY project and comes with an easy toggle button that connects directly to the cord. However, this a tricky item to assemble, so we recommend this particular part for electricians or advanced DIYers. For our more green customers, check out our selection of custom whips that we assemble for you. With all lighting projects and DIY fixture assembly, we always recommend consulting a licensed electrician.

    Easy on and off! I

    Easy on and off! I recommend measuring where you want it to be for easy access. I am happy the option is there to have it higher up than below the table top.
