Jasco Z-WAVE switch missing heat sync tabs. Can I still use it?

Hi all,

I repurposed a Jasco zwave toggle switch that was in a double gang box with another Jasco switch. In order to make it fit with the other switch I had to remove the 3 tabs. Can I still use this switch in another location with the 3 tabs missing without concern for overheating?

For a switch the removal of the tabs does not affect the rating of the switch so you can use anywhere as long as you fall within the overall rating of the switch.

For dimmers removing the tabs alters how much load the device can handle.
