This red military switch guard was designed for critical aerospace and military applications to prevent accidental switch actuation. It is especially recommended for use on starter switches. When the guard is in the closed position, the switch toggle can only be in the down position. Moving the toggle to the up position requires a separate motion of opening the switch guard, but closing the guard automatically brings the switch to the down position.
We stock special Momentary-On SPST toggle switches with a "Reverse Keyway" for use with these switch guards. See:
Part No. 4417 (1/4" push-on terminals) and
Part No. 4422 (solder lug terminals).
If you prefer a Push Button Switch, you can use this switch guard with our Part No. 4423 (available only with 1/4" push-on terminals). This push button switch has a small diameter actuating button for use with a switch guard.
Switch guards are sold individually.
Please note: This is the actual Mil Spec part, not an imported imitation! Conforms to Military Specification MS25224-1.
