For citizen named "lowlight". Added a slight modification to the design. This will make it harder for the switch to accidently be turned off by adding support against the switch arm.

I have a problem with people turning off light switches that for most part need to stay in the on position. If you have a boiler switch or front door light that you like to keep on, this device will help remind your busy fingered friends that this switch is not to be touched. Although the design allows you to over-ride the on position by moving the arm out of the way and still turn off the switch.

You need to print with support there is a detail the has a cut away to clear the switch area.

I also included the CREO .pk2

Hi- I am in CT too. Any chance
I could order 2 of these from you?! Great idea. Must try it

Looking to purchase around a dozen of these. How can I do that ??

If you put little blocks under the piece that needs to be supported, you can basically not require users turn on support material for their slicer. Take a look at this to get an idea of the modifications needed: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:77261http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

I'm using two to replace the 10 year old packing tape on the two switches that turn off the outlet to my entertainment center. I feel like the lock lever should be a bit longer because it gives the switch a bit more wiggle room than I'd like and it might be enough to break the circuit. I'll have to test one on a light or something. Either way it is still a good visual indicator.

This is great; I've never seen anything like it. The outlet my 3d printer is plugged into is controlled by a wall switch, and it's just a matter of time before someone turns it off in the middle of some 10 hour print. No more!

BRILLIANT! I'm totally printing one as soon as I get home!
