In the absence of any means of switching, you are best off with a pullchain. People will reach for one. Whereas a toggle on the box would be nearly impossible to find, (and probably harder to reach) unless they knew exactly where it was.no switches by the doorway, it's a commercial use (private club). I just want to mount pull chain or toggle switches in a knock-out space on the box.
I'm sure there is one, but they are usually integral to the luminaire itself. Check your local electrical supply house for that. Also make sure that it is UL listed to cover your a$$.I agree, a pull chain is preferable to a toggle. So, is there a pull chain switch that will mount in a 1/2" knockout. I really don't want to install bare-bulb fixtures.
Great idea! Thats what I had in mind about leaving this question sit for awhile.Would a motion sensor work? something like this: http://www.e-conolight.com/Product/EProductDetail.asp?ProductFamilyID=15&FGNumber=E-LFK3S it is meant to fit in a KO.
I may get castigated for this, but sometimes the solution for a Gordian Knot is just to whack it with a sword.I checked the supply house this afternoon. they two counter guys said they'd never heard of one. They have a pull chain that is made for a ceiling fan but it takes a 3/8" hole.
