Bob, perhaps you can help me find a SPDT (1-5) switch for flap control where the bat doesn't rotate. Years ago you published a piece on how to make a little flap lever out of a solid piece of aluminum that goes over the toggle and gets held there by a couple of set screws. The only ones I have found all have bats or toggles that rotate and this is not good. Do you recall which switch it was? Thanks!

Thanks, guys. Actually, I have the flap handle (toggle). I need the switch, one that has a bat that doesn't rotate. All the ones I've tried have a toggle that rotates in the switch such that the flap handle will not stay horizontal.

Yes . . .

You need a switch that with a restrained
handle such as the Honeywell 2TL1-5.

The Dash 5 is a 3 position that is stable
in two extremes and spring loaded out of the
third? Is this the action your seeking?

Shop around a bit . . . they come in all
$sizes$ . . .

Found a picture of this switch with the nuts
removed. You can see the end of the handle
shaft. Anyone who supplies this kind of switch
as a MilSpec device will probably have the same
feature.

Pat:
If you LQQK into the switch where the 'bat' enters AND you see a rubber shield.  Those switches have a dust/moisture barrier and they do not rotate.
You can make the lever out of aluminum, hardwood or even use a 3D printer.
If you use set-screws do a little grinding on the bat to make a flat for the set-screw to bite into.
