Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good, Durable Switch I bought this to go with the Missile Style Toggle Switch Cover (Code: N42AT) and it works perfectly. However, to fit it in the cover, the metal washer with the ON and OFF labels has to be removed, but I didn't find this an issue. This product seems durable and has a satisfying click when operated. I'm not an expert, but this product was perfect for what I needed. Will buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless DPDT switch Bought this as a replacement "Radio / Phono" switch in an old US radio. Using a low Ohm meter I measured resistances before using. Got 7, 13 and many more including open circuit. Should take it back but can I be bothered to explain this to the non-techie store staff?
