Leviton has introduced its Decora Edge line of wiring devices — a faster, easier, and safer way to install electrical devices for the home. Compared with traditional switches and outlets, Decora Edge enables users to push stripped 14-gauge or 12-gauge electrical building wire into a termination port and close a lever that clicks into place, terminating the connection with complete confidence.
Changing the way the industry views traditional wiring devices, Decora Edge features a unique patent-pending color-coded lever termination where the stripped end of a wire is inserted into the device and a simple integral lever clamps the wire into place without the use of screws. This design has a snap feature with an audible “click,” so installers can be confident with every termination.
The Decora Edge line consists of a Single Pole Switch, a 3-Way Switch, and a 15 Amp Tamper-Resistant Duplex Outlet. The product’s installation features include color-coded lever terminals — including the ground terminal — for faster, efficient wiring, a larger strap with a unique tongue and groove alignment for quicker trim-out on multi-gang installations, and no exposed metal parts for added safety.
Beginning in February, Decora Edge will be available at The Home Depot in select markets. DIY and pro customers will find this product in the electrical aisle with other Leviton products. Decora Edge will also be sold on HomeDepot.com.
