Protective Enclosure for Control Panel Reset Button

      Disclosed is an arrangement to prohibit accidental actuation of
the "Reset" button located on a panel (4).

      Preliminary enhancement is accomplished by putting a circular
protective enclosure (1) around the reset button (2) as shown in
Figure 1.

      Additional protection can be gained by putting a "flip top" cap
(3) on top of the circular enclosure as shown in Figure 2.  An
operator would then be required to make a conscious decision to flip
open the cap and push the reset button.
