Universal Wall Switch Lockout
Fits standard toggle switches and Decora switches
Master Lock Part# 496B. This universal wall switch lockout is designed to prevent others from being able to turn on a switch that controls a device which is being worked on. This lockout features adjustable parts that allow it to be used on standard toggle switches and Decora type switches. It also hinges open so that the switch can be operated normally when necessary, and includes a bilingual label reminding others that the switch has been locked out. On a standard toggle switch, simply remove the screws to the switch cover, leaving the cover on, and screw the lockout on top of it. On a Decora type switch, change the positioning of the two plastic toggle parts of the lockout, then back the screws out of the Decora cover just enough to to slide the lockout into them. Tighten the screws down and the device is ready to be locked out. This accepts padlocks with a maximum shackle diameter of 5/16".
