This quick hack uses Sugru to change the rocker switch into a toggle switch, allowing the switch to be flicked without moving the lamp around.
While just a simple idea for a badly designed lamp, this could be used to greatly benefit those with reduced dexterity, either on similar lamps, inline rocker switches or to change wall mounted light switches into toggle switches.
Step 1: Tools & Materials
A small 5g sachet is enough to do two small rocker switches (mine measures 12x7mm).
Step 2: Preparation
Clean hands are a must, the Sugru will collect all the dirt off them if you don't wash them first. You can see in the picture below the dirt it gathered from mine having forgot to clean them first! I had to roll it around lots to mix it in leaving my sugru duller than before.
The large foil pack of the "Smart Hacks Super Pack" that I got free from Instructables makes a great play mat. Unlike my desk it doesn't soak up the Sugru, plus it's easy to clean afterward, also unlike my desk.
