My rocker switch guard

Got tired of fumbling with the rocker switches so decided to make this.
I've got a one piece design milled from aluminum comming, but wanted to see how it'd work, so made this from 1/2 x 1/8 riveted together.
3m double stick foam tape holdin it on, may use screws on the one piece.

Now I can work the lockers without lookin at the buttons.

Well, the idea is you can "feel" the correct switch without looking, while bouncing up a nasty trail you shouldn't take your eyes off, but still need to work the lockers to navigate the ob-stakles in your dee-sired path.

I gotcha, I just still never fumbled around on the nasty stuff I've done. Looks good though
