Looks like a key switch for an electric garage door opener. These predate the modern keypads we have today.
What Roberto said …
What Robert, and what James referred to Robert says:-)
Thank you …Robert
They went out with the rotary phone…
It’s a “dummy” switch. It activates a red light and buzzer in your bedroom. Let’s the wife know when you get home late after a night out with the boys…
You guys have it all wrong. It is the entrance to the bat cave. Get real!!
You don’t have a rotary phone ???
Amazing that instead of googling something they post it and wait for an answer when the answer is available in 3 seconds online - especially with something that has its entire description written on the front of it.
where is the fun in that ???
Agree James. Google only gives you practical answers. Not any that we get to enjoy here, which are more fun and entertaining.
Ignition switch. Starts the house.
We need to get rid of it !!
James, The 0 Took a lot of time to spin back. Like it was in slow motion. Felt sorry for those who had a 0 in their phone number.
Garage door opener switch (key required)…todays key pads put these out of use.
Try to work that rotary when you’re three sheets to the wind. To be honest it didn’t help much when they were touch tone!
Welcome to our forum, Daniel!..Enjoy!
