    As simple as this process is, it’s nice that you took the time to help

    There are detectors you can buy that will detect electrical wires, many
    stud finders have them. Sometimes you just have to guess where the wire may

    work when the light switch is off. Some times you want to do this if you
    want to plug a lamp into an outlet but control it with a light switch.
