Guard for
Toggle Switches
Safety cover prevents accidental
actuation, or damage to switch handle.
The Switch Guard is a manual ‘lock-out’ for a toggle switch. It covers
the switch and secures it in the Off (or On) position until the operator
deliberately raises the Switch Guard cover. This protects against accidental actuation of the switch.
This handy Switch Guard is easily added to an installed switch by simply unscrewing
then replacing the switch face nut.
Spring-loaded snap action holds the Switch Guard positively in the Up or Down position.
On returning to the Down position, the Switch Guard cover automatically moves the handle
of the switch to the Down position (usually Off), and secures it in that position. The switch
cannot be operated with the cover down.
The switch guard cannot rotate relative to the switch because it engages with the keyway of
the switch stem.
