  • Patent number: 9859074
    Abstract: A locking device for a rocker switch that has an elongated member having a top edge, a bottom edge, opposite ends, a front facing surface and a rear facing surface. A toggle member is pivotally mounted to the front facing surface. The toggle member pivots between a first toggle position that extends below the bottom edge of the elongated member and a second toggle position that does not extend below the bottom edge. The rear facing surface of the elongated member is mounted to the switch plate cover, the bottom edge of the elongated member adjacent the first end of the rocker switch. When the first end of the rocker switch is pivoted to the first position the toggle may be pivoted to the first toggle position to extend below the lower edge of the elongated member to overlie the first end of the rocker switch to lock the rocker switch in the first position. The toggle may be pivoted to the second toggle position to unlock the rocker switch from the first position.
