Changing Light Switch into Standard 3 Point Plug

Postby TheMightySpud » Sat Oct 10, 2015 8:51 am

Hi all,

I'm just curious about an idea I had and wanted to ask.....

1/ is it possible?
2/ is it a really stupid idea?

Basically I was wondering if it was possible to change a standard wall mounted light switch into a standard 3 pin plug socket without any 'in wall rewiring'?

No different circuits and no neutral to switch.
