Feeling around in the dark for a light switch is sometimes a difficult task, but it would not be so with a customized Alter Switch. The quirky electrical fixture invites you to fix a little trinket to its tip, giving the lever a more pronounced profile and a more interesting overall appearance.

The round end of the switch opens up to reveal an indentation and a pair of slots on either side. With this mount, you can easily apply knickknacks like tiny toys, clothespins, credit cards and more, binding them with string or twist-ties if necessary. Designer Debbi Nitsan has provided a collage of different suggestions for making your Alter Switch wonderfully playful. Check out the rubber duck, the whistle and the dried starfish.
