I have had very good service from this timer (6 months so far).
The mechanical action may have trouble with hard to flip switches.
This unit is narrow enough to fit a multi switch setup, which is where i use it,
not interfering with the other switches.
I left the switch plate in place (not sure why others would leave it off!)
The biggest problem with any of these mechanical "flippers"
is if your light switch is too hard to flip OR if the switch does
not continue its travel after being moved most of the way.
Some quiet type switches may have this problem
(particularly mercury switches) I had a switch like that and did have
to change it to get the it to flip reliably.
P.S.
I also have a different brand that is larger that I use on a single switch,
and seems to handle heavy switches. (I have not tried this model on.)

This timer fits an important niche. Most timer circuits require grounded circuits (according to the helpful guy at my local ACE) but in this one the battery-powered unit physically throws the walls switch on/off according to programmed settings. The controlling unit is poorly designed. Often, the unit will not fully switch on, leaving the unit in an intermediate state. The result is that your security light does not provide any security. The CU does not work well at all with rechargeable batteries, with their slighly lower voltage, and only works about 80% of the time with alkaline AAs. The end result is that I cannot trust it to work. Half the time I come home in the dark and the unit has not switched on the outside porch light. A good idea but a failure in execution.

    Comments about Woods Flip Switch Timer (59744):

    I bought two and had to replace one immediately. The replacement had intermittent problems then died after about 6 months. Programming was a bit cumbersome. It doesn't fit a three switch toggle plate. It's smaller than the AutoChron which is good and it functions the same. They do the job well when they work. For $20 or less I'm willing to try again. They worked great during extended vacations and much cheaper than rewiring. I'd recommend with reservation. I would gladly pay more for an improved product (i.e., more durable, easier programming and narrow enough to fit a three switch toggle plate) but no more than $20 for this.

      Comments about Woods Flip Switch Timer (59744):

      I got this to turn off the outside porch light while I was away for the holidays. I tested it a couple of days prior to my departure and it has worked great since installation. My only suggestion is that the design be altered to fit next to a switchplate. My switch has 3 toggles, and once the plate is removed for installation, the switchplate cannot be reattached to cover the remaining 2 toggles. Tried using a plate for 2 toggles but the unit takes up too space for the new plate to fit.

      Comments about Woods Flip Switch Timer (59744):

      Bought to use for our outdoor lighting at night. Was super easy to install and use, but did not last long. Stopped working after 7 months. Motor inside broke, preventing switch from going all the way down. This keeps the timer from switching on and going into auto mode. Too bad, it was great while it worked.

                I purchased this to use inside the garage since the sensors on my outside lights did not work. Its an affordable and great fix. It was very simple to install and program. It works great and I will buying more to use for the front and back doors.
