Just what is the difference between a tumbler switch and a snap switch?
i've been going around stores looking checking out the prices of tumbler switches and snap switches as a part of my job, but I have no idea what these are and what makes them different from each other. HELP!

Tumbler switches are the typical switches you see see everyday. Any switch that is activated by a lever. Toggle switch, wall switches that are used for your lights, etc... More

Neither "tumbler" nor "snap" are standard switch terms.

A "snap" switch uses a linear spring to push and hold a switch in one position. Moving the toggle compresses/deform the spring, to a point where it can go the other switch direction. The cheap hardware store toggle switch has basically a cam on the toggle which pushes a contact open.
