This is a sort of one-end version of the Jelly Bean switch. They are available in a variety of colours and sizes and are made from durable ABS plastic.
The two smaller lever switches require only 40g of force to activate, and the larger version requires 50g.
Its possible to buy reversed 'Normally On' lever switches that are activated until a hand is removed rather than the other way around. You can also purchase a Latching lever switch and a waterproof version.
A heavy-duty lever switch is also available.
