I don't think anyone has made a solid id on the switch yet, I remember reading somewhere that the switch was fabricated specifically for the film.

To me it looks too ordinary and oddly specific to be custom made. It's gotta be some breaker switch or something from a piece of equipment that somebody had laying around. I would think the bump on the side would be either for surface area if someone was wearing gloves or so that a switch next to it would get tripped.

Consider also that it may have originally been a T shaped switch and they ground off one side.

if you watch Adam Savage build his own proton pack video... he has help building his pack from people from the new production, but still fabricates his own switch. I would imagine they would have the answer as to what switch and where to acquire it. Id bet its fabricated

It did seem like he modified something for his switch. There are a few shots of it...


Kind of looks like some of the switches I ran across that have a rounded end and a hole through it, like you might have for a breaker so you can lock it out.

Still seems weird that they would specifically add a bump, rather than it being a feature of an existing switch, but maybe that's the genius of it.
