Can I use light switches to control mains plug outlets? Answered
My room has only one outlet. What I want to do is fix 2 plug sockets to the bottom of my desk and then have everything electrical connected to that through an extension lead. However, as these are at the back of the table I want to install light switches at the front which I can use to switch the outlets. Is this allowed/safe? The switches I have are single pole. This picture is as seen from underneath the table.
