Customer Question

I made a light fixture that will plug into an outlet, but I'm trying to instal a nutron dimmer switch at the base of the fixture and run a cord from it with a plug, so it's less permanent. not sure how to wire it
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: 15 mins
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yep i built and wired the fixture myself and tested the lights by connecting directly to the plug and everything works fine
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: this is the exact switch i have and I'm connecting to a three wire cord
