Part of the furniture around here
Whoever designed the GU patrol switches and the blanks should be hung, drawn and quartered. I have never encountered such a difficult switch or blank to remove from a panel. The old style was so much easier and didn't require you to access both the front and back of a panel to remove the switches or blanks. Because the switches are inserted from the rear, the locking mechanism has to be a lot firmer and this makes it an absolute bastard to remove switches or blanks. Also, no aftermarket switch will match the factory switches, as they are all inserted from the front. All this just for a slight change in appearance.
