1/22/2013:

Hey guys, now that I have my AccessPORT, I'm sure like many of you, I hate having to pull my best contortionist moves to access the damn test mode connectors. To that, I say "NO MORE!" Today I added this mod:

*not particularly clever, but definitely useful: added a toggle switch to create a circuit between the two test connectors. Now, instead of having to go underneath the dash, I just simply flip the switch next to the inter cooler sprayer!

I'd probably use a different style switch for that, like a covered toggle switch. Don't remember if the test connection being connected while driving can cause any issues, but I personally wouldn't want to risk finding out. Just in case maybe your knee hits it or something(also probably wouldn't feel too great).

Once installed, I thought of it. Then I started playin with my AP. I came to find out that once you turn the ignition to "on" and then I try to flip the toggle, I could not access test mode. I could only access test mode by, turning the key off, flipping the toggle switch, then turning the ignition on. Looks like there was a safety measure subaru put in place.

Ah, okay, well that's good to know regardless, so I didn't waste my day then.

Internet my friend. McMaster-Carr might have something, or I'm sure one of the guys here can think of someplace else that would have what you want. I'm tired and can only think of McMaster-Carr or eBay. Like these covers:
1x Toggle Switch FLIP Safety Cover Guard Military B01
http://bit.ly/V8Gwo5
1,Toggle Switch Racing Lights Safety Cover/Guard,TBL01s
http://bit.ly/V8GEUF
Or this switch with a cover:
New Blue CarAuto Cover LED SPST Toggle Rocker Switch Control On/Off 12V 20A ER99
http://bit.ly/V8GSv6
Found a bunch more on eBay, but they mostly have lights in them too.
