Light switches don't have to be boring! This 1/4 inch steel, gear-shaped, double-gang light switch cover features center cutouts and wooden handles. Just flip the handles to turn lights on and off! It is made from 1/4 inch raw steel so it has an authentic Industrial look. My design fits most toggle switches in the USA. Simply unscrew and remove your existing switch plate, and screw this one in in its place. It is extremely easy and screws are included.

When you place an order, you will receive the wooden handles in natural light wood. It is very easy to stain to achieve a variety of different looks. Before shipping, I clean and oil each piece to make prevent rusting and remove plasma dust.

My lever system has a bolt and nut design that allows you to adjust the amount of torque needed to flip the lights on and off. Your purchase comes with a small, matching wrench to help you adjust the bolts. It also comes with a steel spacer plate that ensures a tight seal against the wall and also prevents wobbling and unsightly gaps.

Base plate measures 4 ¾ inches tall by 4 ¼ inches wide. Levers extend 4 ¾ inches from the wall.

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

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!***

These things are fun, look as expected, and fairly easy to put up after a little trial and error on my part. Got a lot of "that's cool" comments on them. I got three different sizes my only complaint is on the single switch cover which I wish had a slightly wider backing as in my case wasn't wide enough to cover the electrical box hole. I'll need to fill the switch box/hole with a good bit of spackle and some more paint to hide it better. This was not an issue for the double or quad switch plates I got which seemed to be wider around the outside.

This is a sturdy well made piece that is well designed and worth the price. If you are into goth, industrial, or steampunk then this is for you! It arrived faster than stated, and was packed well. I would definitely buy from this seller and would recommend highly. We put it on a wall unit that my husband designed and built and we are very happy with the results! Thank you so much!

Just a bit small on the plate. But it’s beautiful hanging next to my antique Jeep that’s in our wall!
