How to Remove a Rocker Cover (Actuator) from the switch body

The cover part of a rocker switch is called an actuator.  It snaps onto the switch body and creates a complete unit.  These actuators snap on there pretty tight so it doesn’t accidentally fall off.

But it’s really common (in fact, advantageous) to move around, swap and replace actuators.  When you’re trying to replace your grubby old covers with one of our new custom actuators you will need to remove the old ones without breaking them.
