Where can I purchase a battery holder with an attached toggle switch? 4aa, 2c or 2d.?

I am making led lamps for a game. Last question returned a great answer for cheap leds, I'm hoping to get an equally great answer for this one. I am going to make led rope lights. I will use 8 leds and need to power this with batteries. I want to use 4 (max) AA, 2 (max) C, or 2 (max) D size batteries. If I can find a battery carriage or holder with a toggle switch as one piece that would be optimum.

Radio Shack has them (here). (Surpisingly it's not too overpriced.)

Otherwise Google is your friend.

Sorry, not a Radio Shack fan. They sell only AA (2 battery capacity) I am looking for 2 cap C or D and 4 cap AA. Thank you, however for the suggestion.
Did you check my link? It links directly to a 4 AA battery holder with integrated switch.
I stand corrected! I have to look more closely in my RS next time. I wonder what else there is there that I'm missing.

First question is, did you go back and mark the best answer? If not shame on you. Now this question. I've never seen a battery carriage with integral switch unless taken out of a piece of equipment where it was made especially for it. You will probably have to pick you battery box, the pick your switch and the make a bracket for that switch. It won't be too hard. You can use a tin can lid cut and drilled to fit. Cover the sharp edges. Good luck.
