Default Ultimate power switch?

Anyone spotted these in the new Maplin catalogue yet? Looks quite cool and also makes it quite difficult for those important switches to get operated 'accidentally'
Okay, so it's mostly just for fun but I liked it.

"tool" and "aircraft" power switches

What does Maplin sell them for? I have seen them in industrial electrical centres for about $8-10 CAD.

Indeed, as Geek mentioned, aircraft and military guarded switches.

But these red guards are used as emergency switches

The black ones are for not emergency operation.
