Abstract

See full text

A prewired junction box that can be used as a lamp box, a switch box, or a receptacle box. The box has a plurality of different buss elements therein which provide a 3-way switch circuit; a single pole circuit; and a 'hot' circuit. Each box can be quickly installed into an electrical service wiring circuit in a building of the like by inserting appropriate wires of an electrical conductor into appropriate openings in said box to complete a particular circuit. This eliminates hand-wiring and the need to ever enter the interior of the junction box.
