    I use them at work on missile launchers. I have seen them at Radio Shack too.

    This is another place that has some pricey ones. I went to our local radio shack and the guy there thought I was a terrorist and didn't know what I was talking about. No luck in their hard copy catalog or their internet catalog. I am just looking for some that aren't 15.00 each since all I need them for is to turn on a few relays. no current draw needed. I might make my own flip over cover panel for a set of switches if i can't find some for under 15.00 each.

    Here's a little trick from fire apparatus where there are exposed toggles on pump panels/aerial ladder controls to keep them from accidental on/off switching - use a piece of aluminum channel around the switches, just small enough to keep anything larger than a fingertip from being able to flip the switch.
