I'd say a DPST would work best.

I was thinking SPDT given the "two-way" description.

Since he sais two way toggle switch !
He must need a double throw !
But which one a SPDT or a DPDT ?
Since a DPDT can be used as a SPDT,
And a SPDT cannot be used as a DPDT 1
Then I would recommend a DPDT !

NUFF SAID !
