I've hit the power button a time or two by accident so I've been looking for a way to protect it. I walked all over Container Store after work today looking for the right small clear plastic box to modify when I happened upon what is for me the near perfect solution, a tiny 0.7 ounce scoop.

Using a hacksaw, Dremel tool, and a sanding sponge I modified it to the pics you see below. I happened to have some clear "Shoe Goo" adhesive handy and it seems to be working well holding the "cover" in place.

The car is still new to me so I'm still playing with it ... I prefer sport mode so if I forget to switch prior to pulling away from my home then that's when I'm most likely to accidentally depress the Power button.

You guys can all say what you want, but the location of that button is a poor design. That would never pass muster in any aircraft cockpit. Sure, the Volt is not a fighter aircraft, but if inadvertently switching the car off leads to an accident the consequences can be the same.

This topic pops up often enough so obviously I'm not the only Volt owner with this concern. I was only trying to offer another inexpensive solution.

Cheers.

Woohoo! This is post #55, the same as my age in human years. But today it feels like dog years.
