Back to the Future

These mechanical light switches transform an ordinary appliance into the perfect flourish for your secret library, steampunk chalet, or wherever your imagination lives! The fabulous contraptions are the brainchild of Lance Nybye Jr.. He crafts the mechanisms from decorative plywood, often leaving the alternating colors of wood left exposed at the edges. The joints are all finished with brass hardware, and the laser engraved details have the swirling ornamental lines of a Victorian engraving. The switch installs easily in your bedroom, hobby room or office. Simply attach it over an existing, standard switch plate using the existing screws. Made in San Diego, California.

Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of jewelry design after a fire consumed their previous business of laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback, but they found a creative way to reinvent themselves. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already owned to make wood laser-cut earrings. In addition to winsome wood accessories, the duo also creates brilliantly designed light switch plates, clocks, and other earthy and artful accents for the home.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Toggle Switch Plate:

      The directions say to use the screws from your switch plate, but those don't work because they're too short. It also says to install over the existing plate. That would look horrible.

          Very cool, unusual addition to our master bedroom. Definitely a conversation starter whenever we give a tour! We had to do a little bit of adjusting to get it to fit over our existing switchplate (as is directed in installation instructions) but it worked out fine.

          Service and delivery comments:

          First of all, I've got to say Uncommon Goods does a marvelous job of packaging their orders. There was no short supply of bubble wrap in the box! The first switch plate we ordered was defective. One of the gears in the center was miscut. I contacted customer service and a new one was prompty shipped out to me. Awesome customer service!

          Switchplate is very clever and unique. Its a good gift for those recipients who don't 'need anything'. Its also clearly priced for that segment as it is very high priced for the product.

            I required rush shipping and the customer service representative was very understanding and helpful. His suggestions ensured that the item reached us in time for the birthday party. It was a pleasure doing business with Uncommon Goods.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Toggle Switch Plate:

                We got the double-switch version, and it is very clever and fun-looking. My 13-yo son thinks it is cool. It tells you to install it over your existing switchplate and use the same screws. The regular switchplate screws aren't nearly long enough to hold the additional switchplate as well, so we're having to hunt down special, longer screws. In addition, it feels very fragile, so I'm worried it will break quickly once we do get it installed. It's a clever idea; I just wish it had come with the necessary screws and had been made to be more sturdy.

                  We installed this switch plate in an area where it can be seen from a number of locations in our living room. It's really like a piece of small art on the wall, and everyone notices it when they first see it. It's such a unique item but also very subtle. It adds the perfect amount of "sparkle" to the space and we love it.

                    This was a gift, so I have not been able to personally experience the item myself. However, my stepdad thought it was great! I thought he would put it in the garage, but he liked it so much it went in the kitchen instead. My mom says it has a lot of moving parts and they were both really excited about this unique gift!
