Covers or diffrent switches for my outside lights... help.

Heres the situation, the switch that turns my outside lights on are out in the dining area… and it’s about 2 ft. off the ground, so kids like to turn them on and off. (this was a brilliant move on my electricians part :x )

So, i’m trying to find those switches that you stick a kind of key into them to turn them on and off… but I have no idea where to get them.

Any ideas?

Thanks all!

. . . . or just relocate the switch 4 feet higher on the wall. If you cannot do it yourself (actually a pretty doable project) then the electrician or handyman should be able to do it inexpensively, like under $75. It would save fuss and muss and avoid having keys to lose or get lots of copies of.

This is the kind of thing you are looking for as far as a keyed switch.

The Fat Boy, that would work… where can I find them at? Thanks!

NicksPizza, it’s below a large window, so it would have to be some work to move it around.

SMITH,JOHN, have not been able to find them anywhere… can’t seem to find them at Grainger either…
