Rocker to Toggle Switch Hack

Just a quick post to show off some pictures of a hack I did with Sugru this month.

I received a pack of 12 sachets of Sugru at the beginning of the month as part of an Instructables competition I entered. The challenge? Do something cool with it!

I was fed up with the way my desk light slid across the desk whenever I used the cheap rocker switch on the front of it. Sugru allowed me to extend the switch out so it became a toggle switch. It’s now much easier to use since I can swipe at it from any direction, whereas before I had to push it from dead ahead for it to engage and not slide away from me.
