Battery Switch (Off - On - On) and Locking Toggle Switches
« on: February 20, 2011, 12:25:55 PM »
I'm beginning to think I might have to do a bit of relay work but I was wondering if anyone knew of a site that sells those type of large toggle switches that goes off-on-on. Most are on-off-on you see.

The other is logging toggle switches where you pull the switch to release, move it and then release it again to unlock. Like this...
Small | Large
- strange thing is I think I have seen some somewhere and cannot for the life of me remember where I saw them.

Cheers.

Not sure about your Battery switch but here's a millspec locking toggle on ebay.  You should also be able to get locking toggles from local hobby electronics stores as I did here in Aus, but they are a bit flimsy compared to the above.

I've figured out how to sort out the battery switch... They sell On-On-On switches... :D Found some locking switches at the same place so I got a twofer... Same as that ebay item but a quarter of the price.

John, where did you get the locking switches?  I'd be interested in a couple myself.

Cheers,

Ken.

Try the link below.  It could be that you could get the locking toggle from there.

I found a bunch of locking switches but this is the closest I could find that looked like the one I was after...
