I actually have those exact light switched in every room of my house. Its a 1961 MCM just outside of Memphis, TN. I am only the third owner and I can attest to the fact that the switches are original. They were made by Honeywell under the name "Tap-lite" and can still be found on ebay from time to time (I've had to replace a few:). If you ever decided to get rid of yours, please let me know as I would love to have them.

Where do you find replacement switch plates for these unusual switches? I have several in my home and the plates are beyond repair.

I have some new old stock tap-lites listed on ebay right now under seller name "briggsnut".

Blair Hennington

I have those same light switches in my new home and they are original. Do they make covers for them?
