Red covered safety/arming switch

Geez, I am having a hell of a time looking for a special type of switch. Not being sure of what its called doesnt help my search. You know the type.... it would be a rocker or toggle switch that has a red flip up cover that protects it from accidentally being activated.

Does anyone know what this is called and prfereably where to get some? I have searched for various versions of...safety switch, red standard safety switch,protected,covered,arming....etc.

This shouldnt be hard to find...but so far no luck.

Any help locating these would be appreciated.

I've seen some at Auto Zone or pep boys. They aren't high quality (made in China) but they do work and are only a couple bucks. Thats if you don't want to wait and would like to get them asap.

THX for the reply Neil but the few that I have seen around are cheap crap. I would like one with a rugged cover and solid electrical properties.

Follow-up Post:

THX for the info Will. Those look good...

What I ended up doing is i went to NAPA and bought some decent made in USA 40 Amp solid switches for $7 each and then went to Autozone. They have crappy Chinese 20 Amp switches with the plain red covers. I bought them for $5 each. Took the covers off the Autozones and put them on the robust NAPA switches. got what I needed locally for $12 each.

Those from the 12V site are a little too bling bling for my taste. I am all about the understated functional look.
