The Battery Adapter, model 720, is a switch adapter interface for single switch activation of any battery operated toy, tape recorder, or other device. Continuous pressure on the switch keeps the device running until the switch is released. The adapter can be used with the Switch Latch/Timer (see separate entry) to set action for a specified time period or to use switch hits for on and off. The disk end is inserted into the battery compartment; the other end plugs into any switch with a standard
"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To adapt toys and small appliances for switch use. To make the device, separate the leads approximately one-half inch from both ends of the speaker wire using scissors or a knife. Using wire strippers or scissors, strip approximately one-quarter inch of the protective plastic insulator from each wire lead, being careful not to cut any of the wires. Unscrew the plastic case from the inline phone jack to expose two terminals with holes in them. Run the wire thro

"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To adapt a device or toy for switch use. To make the device, cut the speaker wire to desired length (nine to twelve inches)and prepare the ends by separating and stripping one-forth inch of insulation off of wire. Next, prepare two gold circles/disks. Remove posts and file smooth.
Solder the conductors at one end of the wire to the disks, soldering one conductor to each disk. Be sure to bring the plastic insulation right up to the edge of the disk, but not ont
The Battery Interrupter is a battery interface control for toys designed to create switch compatibility for non-adapted toys for individuals with fine motor or physical disabilities. It is a cable that fits between any battery-operated toy or device and a switch, permitting the toy or device to be operated by the switch. It interrupts the power by inserting a disc between on of the batteries and the adjacent anode. There are two models available for battery sizes AA and AAA or C and D batteries.
The Battery Interrupter Kit 2 is a control input interface designed to enable individuals to adapt toys and other battery-operated devices for use with capability switches.

Toy Adapter is a battery interface control for toys that allows a single switch to control the operation of a battery-powered device such as a toy. A switch is plugged into one end of the adapter, and a small plate at the other end is inserted between the battery and the battery contacts in the toy. The switch will then turn the toy on and off. Toy Adapters come in three sizes, depending on the size of battery in the toy. The Adapter is available with a choice of a mini plug or a submini plug.
Toy Adapter Cables allow battery operated toys or devices to be turned on using most single switches (switches not included). The device consists of a cable with a jack for a single switch at one end, and a small metal plate at the other. The plate is inserted between two batteries in a battery-operated device, such as a toy, or between a battery and a battery contact. When a switch is plugged into the jack, the switch will turn the toy on and off. Toy Adapter Cables are available for "C," "AA,"
