What kind of pull switch to ask for?
I have a ceiling fixture that holds (3) 60 watt light bulbs. The fixture is switched by a wall switch...all 3 bulbs on or all 3 off.
I know that I can install some kind of switch with a pull chain in the ceiling fixture so that either 1 bulb, 2 bulbs, or all 3 bulbs can be on and then all off.
I want the pull chain so it is easy to reach and not having to walk across room to turn bulbs on or off, plus I can control the amount of light by either 1 bulb on or 2 or 3 on. I will just always leave the wall switch ON & control it by the pull chain.
I just don't now what kind of switch to ask for and most of the kids at orange and blue box stores don't know what I need.
What type of switch is this called and how does one wire this switch to the three bulbs for a pull chain?
