Step 2 of 5

Start at the 3-way line switch


This is the switch closest to the power source.

Step 3 of 5

Identify the common


The common wire will be attached to the black screw on a 3-way switch.

Step 4 of 5

Remove the common and mark it


Using a screwdriver, remove the common and mark it by twisting a wire nut onto it.

Step 5 of 5

Remove the other wires


Remove the other wires from the 3-way switch at the line location.

The travelers will be on the brass or gold screws. The ground will be on the green screw.
