How to wire a 3-way switch

A quick look at how to wire a 3 way switch, commonly used inside vehicles, project boxes and so on.

I’m planning to use this switch in an upcoming video and figured I’d shoot a quick video showing how the basic wiring works because I’ve had people ask about them before.

The switch is rated up to 10amp at 125v although I’ll be using it for 12/24v DC.

I don’t have a wiring diagram but I believe the video shows things clearly enough. Your input goes into the middle pin and then flows out through the top or bottom pin depending on the position of the switch.
