need new switch for light

I need to replace the switch on a 1k open face light. Nothing at the local hardware store. Anyone have a link to a good source?

Hubbel makes a great switch looks almost like the ones on Arri lights. Got mine at an electrical wholesaler - like a place that sells to electricians- for $20.

I think you can see them at any major electrical supplier. I assume a cat is a Think Hubbell First

An inline switch rated to 1000 watts has proven itself to be extraordinarily hard to find from electrical suppliers/Home Depots.
