Light Disconnect

It may sound crazy, but can I use this

as an everyday switch. Not regular on/off 100 times a day usage, but only once or twice a day. I need something that can lock "off", and is "tamper proof" and very heavy duty.

Will it hold 14ga or 12ga copper wire?

This is to shut off and lock a group of outlets that feed power tools in a garage. I would like to kill power to them and lock it when not in use so unauthorized people can't use the tools.

Light Disconnect

That fits the bill quite nicely for what you need.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
