My System Specs

Default Question about a toggle switch guard.

As a standard Nerd, I own a cat.
Sometimes when I'm gaming my cat likes to jump up on to my half tower.
My power button is located on the top of the case, when she does this sometimes she turns off my PC half way through a game. Sometimes she turns my computer on in the middle of the night.
I'm looking for a case mod, a toggle switch guard.
Can anyone recommend a site with something like this that would ship to Canada.

Is there a princess auto out there? IIRC they've got military style toggle switches.

NCIX has the guards, but don't have the switches to go with them so you'd have to find a momentary on toggle switch to go with them.

I can also confirm that a cat would have an awfully hard time making this particular switch as well....

For the vandal proof switch all I did was mount it into a 5 1/4" bay cover by drilling/filling out the appropriate sized hole.

Always want's to be the centre of the attention, lol.

Thanks all those would work.
I'm thinking I just might design my own case in Blender though.
Lot's of down time at lately.

Thanks
