82468 - Accessories for Toggle Switches Series

Switch guards help prevent accidental actuation of a toggle switch and protect it from damage.

Typical uses:

  • Switch is in a vulnerable position –such as a light switch in a truck cargo section.
  • Switch controls a vital function that must not be accidentally operated – like the hose return switch on an oil truck.
  • Switch is important, but infrequently used – like an emergency switch.

Features and Benefits

  • Toggle Cover provides the maximum protection, and can be easily added to an already installed switch by unscrewing and replacing the facenut.
  • Spring-loaded snap action cover returns the switch to the ‘safe’ position when closed, and secures it there.
  • Rugged red melamine cover is colorfast at temperature extremes and is resistant to most contaminants, like fuel oil.
