What we're going to use to feed these with I've got a two-game switch here that we're going to change that to a three-game at a dimmer for the three pendants over the countertop first thing you do, of course, is turn the power off to the Switches pull the switches out of the wall at that point, it's a good time to go ahead and start marking your wires. So you know exactly where you took them from now. We just unhook the wire from the screws right here. These tabs they're, designed to hold the wires in place.
What you have to do is bend the tabs out of the way. So then, you can just push the wires back in the law and we want a little bit more room while we work so well. Take the three-game box we'll hold it up here, we'll mark it off before you install our three games. We have to get a runaway from here to the pendants. To do that. We've got to go fish tape down the wall tug around pull it up. So we can connect it all right here we see the wire going down to the switch simple drill, a hole right beside it. It's nice to have that first wire, help us locate. The second one sure is alright, pull it on up now.
This is the wire we ran from the Attic down for our pendants, it's our switch leg and inside this, we have a black, which is the Hutt, a white which is the neutral and the bear here, which is the ground. Okay, put your switch leg in first we've got these marks, so just a simple matter of sticking them up in the box, so the old two gang box had these tabs on it so that a nail could be put through 245 to secure it to the 2x4. That's not going to work for us in this retrofit here for the three gangs how you going to secure that Chris, just with standard drywall screws right through this out of the box into the stud.
Now we just reconnect the two switches we took apart following your labeling that you put on them line up your screws. They just simply screw this in place and move on to the other switches. So, Chris, we have two circuits coming into this box. One circuit goes to this switch and that is all wired up, so we're fine with that one. The other circuit which comes right to this black hot right here fed one fixture.
