Garbage Disposal Safety

I'm looking for a standard looking light switch that physically requires you to hold it in the on position in order to activate the garbage disposal, and when released automatically turns off. I cannot find one and would appreciate any direction that somebody can give me. Thanks

Re: Garbage Disposal Safety

What you're looking for is called a momentary wall switch like this one from Hubbell - HBL1556GY
They're not cheap ---- somewhere around $42.

Hope this helps. :)

I would suggest putting the switch in the garage or maybe your neighbors house just to be sure,:rolleyes:
