Abstract : The patent describes a toggle switch which has a uniquely configured bail spring-biased in-place to allow one-handed operation while positively preventing the accidental actuation of the switch. Separate, oppositely directed motions by an operator to remove the bail and to displace the toggle lever ensure against the accidental actuation of the switch. By its simplicity of design the toggle lock guard is capable of being mass produced at minimal cost to provide a markedly high degree of reliability.
