"No lightswitch in 28BHS".. Problem is solved!.. Photos

Here is the solution that we came up with to install a light switch in our master bedroom without cutting open the walls to rewire. I am really happy with the results.. and thanks for all the suggestions.. they helped me figure this out.

Looks good! I use that outlet for our recently installed bedroom TV. Have yet to use it though.

Great ingenuity. My mind will definitely store that idea away for a future fix to some electrical problem.

Lee I was thinking that this same set up would work quite well for a "wall hung" type lamp that plugs into a lower socket... the "receiver" unit is actually designed for table lamps etc..
