They work, but they sure seem to be the cheapest solution (which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5). Just holding these in your hand makes you think that you might be able to accidentally tear the knob off of the line.

Luckally, the knobs rotate 360 degrees (on, off, on, off- 90 degrees between each switch), so there's no worry about accidentally turning them too far and breaking them.
