Now you can use my Gear/Lever light switch covers when you have an outlet next to your toggle switch! Yes, it's fully functional! Just flip the metal levers to turn lights on and off. It is extremely easy to install.

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. Your purchase comes with a small, matching wrench to help you adjust the bolts. 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.

This design is only compatible with toggle switches (the kind you flick up and down with your finger). If you have a different style of light switch, and you want to convert to the compatible toggle style, please let me know and I will include a 15A-120V toggle switch with your order at no extra charge.

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!***

When installing, a good option is to invert your existing toggle switch (turn it upside down) so that the up/down, on/off action of the levers is not reversed.

Base plate measures 4 ¾ inches tall by 4 ¼ inches wide (for a double-gang cover with one gear and one outlet). Levers extend 4 ¾ inches from the wall.

Built to last and made in the USA from CNC plasma-cut 1/4 inch steel plates.

    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.

    I absolutely love this; it's so sturdy and well-made! What a fabulously fun addition to any room! well worth the money and knowing it will hold up to frequent use!




    This switch is so cool, I installed it in my garage. It was the missing piece to my shop. Made very well, good seller, good service. Thanks
