Toggle Light Switch Plates Complicate the Basic Light Switch

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 5, 2012

The first thing most people do when they get home is flick the lights on. The last thing they do before they leave for work or to go out is flick the lights back off. Light switches nowadays are designed to make this process easy. One flick, one press, one quick easy movement to turn the lights on or off.

Something that wants to make doing this everyday task a whole lot more difficult is the Toggle Light Switch Plate. It looks pretty good, although I doubt it will do any favors for people who are constantly in a hurry.


It’s designed to go over light switches that are designed to be flicked on and off. Once it’s there, the person would have to move pull the lever going from “on” to “off” and vice-versa instead of just hitting the switch like they usually do. They’re available in a few different designs if the first one isn’t complex enough for you.


Want one for your own light switch? They’re available from Green Tree Jewelry’s Etsy shop for $39.95 to $49.95(USD) each, were you can find even more unusually complicated light switch covers.
