Toggle Switch - Busted. Any robust ones out there?

There are thousands on the web and on here, but none that speak to being robust - most I've dealt with tend to be plastic and easily breakable! I flipped mine last night and it just snapped!

I like the toggle versus push which likely are inherently more robust. So, any ones that have served you well? Or just be prepared to switch the switch when they do what POS's do?

Mine lights up my bumper bar mounted Dually spots. Or used to anyway.

Or your local Napa. That's where I used to get metal toggles.

Also think about relocating the switch if it's in a bad spot where it gets hit or bumping up the physical size of the switch if it's in an area that will allow it. Those little guys and "robust" don't usually go hand in hand from my experience.
You can get rubber boots for 'em that will help to keep moisture from getting in from the front.

Also look into a different style of switch that is more low profile. Toggles are cool admittedly, but don't always lend themselves to every application.
