[ad#block]Question: I purchased a neon sign and want to hard wire it to a light switch. See arrows on the attached picture.
The light switch used to wire my pool table lights. I had an electrician leave the wiring to the light switch for I wanted to purchase a neon sign. He wired a new switch for my table lights and left the live wire for my neon sign. The new neon sign has an AC Adapter (model AD 1280 – Input 120 VAC 60 Hz 14W and Output 12 VDC 800 mA)
How do I hard wire the neon sign to the light switch?
