Single-pole switch removal is easy enough to do. irst, remove the two straight-bladed screws that hold the switch cover plate on and remove the cover plate. Then, remove the two screws that hold the switch to the juntion box. carefully pull the switch from the box and check it once more to be sure the power is off to the circuit feeding the switch.
