Are metal body toggle switches safe for mains switching?

<< < (3/3)

TheMG:
The only time Ive seen such a switch short to the metal body was when the toggle was subjected to a significant impact, enough to break if off its pivot and drive it down into the innards of the switch. Of course, it was mounted to a grounded chassis and simply popped the mains fuse. So yes, such a failure can happen.
