 A '​Toggle'​ is a combination of an operating lever and spring loading which causes the lever to be '​locked'​ at one or other extreme position. It is extensively used in mechanical assemblies, in which the extremes may be '​locked'​ by the '​toggle spring'​. Another example is the '​Mole'​ self locking wrench in which the toggle action also gives strong mechanical advantage. ​    \\ The Electronic version is also a device that can be '​latched in one position or another, indeed sometimes called a '​latch'​. A '​Toggle'​ is a combination of an operating lever and spring loading which causes the lever to be '​locked'​ at one or other extreme position.
