on-off-on "light switch"

(1/6) > >>

Bob Faulkner:
Has anyone seen a on-off-on toggle light switch?  There seems to be plenty of on-off-on switches (small switches), but I have not been able to find one that looks like a regular light switch... something that can be installed in a standard (USA standard) light-switch box.

I'm trying to find a way to quickly switch between two different power sources (12V) for some 12V LED lighting.

2 standard switches side by each, 1 mounted backwards, with a joining bar?  Doesn't get you an off position, but I built it for the projection booth in high school to swap projectors. Far better than wrapping an AC cord around my foot to kill one when i started the second...

Right, no off position!  I thought about using 2 switches but couldn't work out "off"

Many thanks guys!!

I knew there had to be something available!  In all of my searches I was looking for "on-off-on", which apparently was restricting the results.
