    I'm looking for switches with a protective covers over them. I need the
    covers to keep people from accidentally energizing the switches.

    Does anyone know what the real name of covered switches is? I need a
    covered N.O. pushbutton and a covered rocker switch. I've tried search
    engines for covered pushbutton, etc. but get too much trash in the
    search. Better yet, if you know of a good place to get these... ;)

    Thanks

    Doomsday switch covers? No, I don't know.

    Search for: rocket + "switch covers" and you'd be amazed at what's
    there.

    The model rocketry folk still use them and know where to get them.

    C&K Switches (who seem to now be C&K Newton) make these, though I can't find
    a convenient link for you. See if you can rustle up a local (to you)
    distributor). I think it was just a covered or protected switch (too long
    since I used them).

    Tyco Electronics also may have them:

    Cheers.
