I understood what he said but maybe you don't. What he is saying is both wires are black. It doesn't matter which one you put where. White,[or neutral }, goes straight to the light from the source. The wires can be any color but white or green. Only the new switches are grounded. You can connect to the metal box if you want with a seperate wire. Ron J.
