It’s not what project you have in mind that may use a rocket launch switch… The question is what project will you come up with once you have one in hand? Everyone has a proverbial missile to launch.

The hot red safety cover protects a toggle switch from accidentally being turned on. When flipped up, the user has full access to a switch underneath.

Simple, but, it entertained us on the drive from Syd...
