Military Style Safety switch

Ok I've got a radio shack safety toggle now but would really like one of the cool looking military style switches. You know like the ones you see in movies for the Nitrous systems and missles and such. As a kid I remember an old army surplus store had some but so far have found none locally or in my internet searchs. Anybody know where I could order one? Website phone # something? Thanks.

Are you talking about the switch with a red flip top cover, covering the switch?

IF so Klixon, ALLEN BRADLEY.or any commercial mfgr....do a google each you'll get 100k hits!

Yeah Doc Klixon was who I first thought of but was unable to find what I wanted on their website.
Aughh might just get Ron to paint mine the way I want them. After all he does have that cool lil paint gun from when he was crazy into model cars.

These??

http://www.mcmaster.com/ctlg/loadpag...+Switch+Guards

For some reason the link doesn't want to work,

So go to www.mcmaster.com, and search for
toggle switch guards, it should go to page 809
of the catalog, scroll down the page...

Cole Hersee also sells them. I don't like the guards. I throw them away.

For what it's worth, Del City has the covers you are talking about. They are about $4.00 a piece and are a nice cover.

try http://www.delcity.net for the switch covers. I don't have a part number for them handy...
