Abstract : The patent relates to templates for simultaneously setting a number of toggle switches in a row such as during bootstrap loading of a computer. An elongated rectangular template having a series of teeth extending inwardly toward the computer panel is movable upward and downward with one end in slidable contact with a guide bar for positioning the template relative to the computer panel. Moving the template upward with the teeth under the handles sets a preselected group of switches to the IN position and, conversely, moving the template downward with the teeth above the handles sets the switches back to the 'reset' position.
