Albus Dumbledore holding the Put-Outer


The Deluminator taking in light

The Deluminator or, as it is known in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the Put-Outer, is a device which Albus Dumbledore invented. It can turn off Muggle lights.

It is first discovered (as the "Put-Outer") in "Something Peculiar is Happening".

From the Story

Albus Dumbledore uses this item – which looks like a silver cigarette lighter – to turn out all the lights on Privet Drive. Each time he clicks it, a light flickers out, eventually leaving the street in near-total darkness.

Deluminator on Pottermore

On Pottermore, the Deluminator can be seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Chapter 1, Moment 2. When moving over the Deluminator, it starts taking in the streetlights.
