Replacing a switch

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Arial; color: #242729} span.s1 {letter-spacing: 0.0px}

I was going to replace the switch in my son's room with a regular single pole toggle switch, and I came across this. (see pictures 1 and 2). Can I use the single pole toggle switch (pic 3), and if so, how do I wire it? Thanks for any points in the right direction. -Joe

Hey jharrop.

You currently have a 3 way switch. There would be some headache switching from a 3 way to a single pole switch. If your house is older then there could be some trouble finding power sources and getting all the wires sorted out. I would recommend putting on a new 3 way switch, as doing so will make your project considerably easier.
