I want to add a simple inline switch to a small, mains powered lamp (~240V AC, 10W Max).
It's earthed; it has a typical 3-core cable with a 3-pin plug.
I bought a bunch of switches, expecting each switch to have 2-3 contacts per side, but they only have 1 contact per side. In other words, they're only capable of breaking contact for a single wire. They have grooves down the adjacent sides to run/hold the other 2 wires, but it seemed strange.
Is it fine to just open the active wire, as shown below?
Note: Brown = Active. Blue = Neutral.
This is the kind of thing I do all the time with 6-24V DC applications, but domestic appliances aren't really in my wheelhouse. Is there any reason this would be inappropriate or unsafe with 240V AC?
