Triple 3-way switch in single yolk

I have an old triple 3-way switch in a single yolk and the middle switch is broke. Any idea where I can get a new one can only find Dual 3-way.

Re: Triple 3-way switch in single yolk

I suspect you're having trouble finding a tripple switch on a single yoke is because if such a switch was mounted in a single gang box, the legal box fill would most likely be exceeded. So, it's not being manufactured.

Can you live with a double switch and have two lights come on together?

Good Luck from Columbiana, Alabama

or if the location permits you could cut in a three gang box to replace the single gang box, might have to lenghten the wire some with wirenuts

Try googling 'despard devices' to see if that is what you need.
