QwickSwitch is a conceptual line of light switches and receptacles that can be removed and replaced without tools and without turning off the power. With QwickSwitch anyone can change a standard light switch to a dimmer, or replace a standard receptacle with a built-in night light. For hospitals and other high-use environments, the ability to replace outlets and switches without turning off the power can provide significant time and cost savings.
