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:

      Purchased the planet gear version and liked the look and design. Problem is the screws in our light switch plate, which are recommended in directions, are rounded and prevent the mechanism for working. How hard would it be to include two itty bitty screws that are the correct size?

              I purchase unique, unusual gifts that you may not see elsewhere. Uncommon Goods is my "go to" online store for great gifts. This is the first time I've been disappointed. The rack and pinion toggle switch was a huge let down. The quality and workmanship were poor and the switch itself didn't work well. I returned it for a refund.

              We bought the double-switch plate. My husband recently steampunked our flatscreen TV, so this addition looks great next to it. We had to tell the kids to be careful with it because it is somewhat delicate and because the switches work opposite a traditional lightswitch (flicking the lever UP shuts OFF the lights instead of turning them on.) Slight learning curve but worth it.

                My son-in-law is very hard to shop for....He really liked the switch as it was very unique. I would have liked the switch to be more durable as it looks
                like it might break easily.

                    So glad I stumbled onto this product. Gave the double-switch one to my mechanical engineer brother for Christmas. He is one who is very hard to shop for and this was a unique and fun gift. Arrived very quickly and extremely well packaged. Thank you!

                      It's enjoyable for me to give 'fun' gifts along with practical ones. This Toggle Switchplate was both fun & practical. My husband was very pleased with it. It will be mounted where other people can see it and we know it will receive comments because it is unique.

                        Product was even more amazing than it's picture. It was the perfect gift for some one who loves steam punk decor. Although, I was a little hesitant about the construction of it in light wood material. It feels a little delicate, but seems to hold up well when tested.
