    How to completely disable three three way light switch.

    Guys, I have a three-way switch configuration in my living room. It looks like this: two light switches which control a single receptacle.

    What I want to do is permanently disable both light switches so that the receptacle receives continuous power. Then I’ll plug a dimmer into that receptacle and use pico remotes to turn lamps on and off. Can someone advise me as to how I should wire this? Should I put a wire nut on all three power cables inside each junction box behind the light switches?

    Yes. Connect all the wires together, that will eliminate the switch.

    Thank you. My biggest question was about the traveler wire. I didn’t know whether I should include that in the wire nut or not. It seems to me that the traveler would be unnecessary since I no longer have a three way light switch but I am an amateur at this. Thanks again for the assistance.
