Make your lighting as unique as you are with this 1/4" steel light switch cover! The portion with the gear/lever ONLY works with toggle switches (the kind that you flick up and down with your finger). However, there is now a space for you to keep your dimmer or rocker plate next to it! The design fits over your existing switches. Just unscrew and remove your current plastic plate, and screw this in its place. it is extremely easy to install, and comes with the necessary screws.

My lever system has a bolt and nut design (instead of a simple pin), which allows you to adjust the tension for a customized feel. It also comes with a steel spacer plate, which ensures a tight seal against the wall and also prevents wobbling and unsightly gaps between the switch and the wall.

As always, if you have a dimmer or rocker switch, we can include a 15A-120V toggle switch with your order at no extra charge. Please notify me if you need a complimentary toggle switch.

I am no longer offering the rusted version of my light switch covers. However, I am still offering the rusted version on duplex outlet covers, rocker covers and blanks. If you prefer the rusted look, I am offering an "un-oiled" version of my light switch covers. Instead of oiling them with WD40 to prevent rusting, I clean them and then leave them un-oiled. You can then create your own rusting solution. I recommend 16oz hydrogen peroxide, 2oz white vinegar, and ½ tablespoon of salt. Mix this solution in a spray bottle, shake it up so that everything mixes well, and then spray your light switch cover. You will probably need to give it two coats and then let it sit for a couple of days so the rusting really sets in. Then, use clear matte spray paint to set the rust and keep it from transferring to your hands. Alternatively, you can purchase a sprayable rust patina from www.steelfxpatinas.com. Just spray your light switch cover and wait a few days. ***PLEASE INCLUDE A NOTE WITH YOUR ORDER IF YOU PREFER THE UN-OILED VERSION!***

The base plate measures 4 ¾ inches tall by 4 ¼ inches wide. Lever extends 4 ¾ inches from the wall.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Care instructions

    Light switches should be oiled (I prefer to use WD40) at least once a year in order to prevent rusting.

    Sizing details

    My light switches with levers ONLY work with toggle switches (the kind you flick up and down with your finger). It's easy to change from a dimmer or other type of light switch to a toggle switch.

    Are these safe?

    Any properly installed and functioning light switch has a safety ground. There should be no dangerous voltages anywhere near a properly functioning switch. The toggle switch itself is plastic, which is also an insulator. Whenever you are working with electricity, however, it’s always a good idea to turn off the breaker and double check your wires to make sure the insulation on your wiring is intact, and that the ground is connected to the switch. If the copper wire is exposed, or if the insulation is cut, you could get a shock due to faulty wiring.

    Before installing, please ensure that your current light switches are functioning properly, that your switch is grounded, and that there are no loose wire connections.
