What is a toggle light switch?
A toggle light switch features a single 2-way toggle, which can be switched either up or down to turn the light on or off. This is a fairly common style of switch which you’ll often see featured in many heritage restorations.
The style was first introduced in 1916, taking over from the push-button switch commonly seen throughout the late 1800s. From then on, the toggle switch was here to stay before rocker switches were introduced in the 1980s. Still, this vintage style of switch continues to be seen to this day in homes across Australia.
