Both under counter fluorescent and LED light fixtures usually have ko' s built in for mounting a switch . Otherwise you can drill a 3/8 " hole and mount your own switch .The least expensive route is to buy a cord fed light fixture with a switch and just remove the cord

I do have an outlet right below the light- so I could just cap off the old electric and use a cord- though I'll have to look at how to do that safely. Maybe I'll go up to Home Depot and browse and figure out what's available.

When we went to Backus last January to ck out the 13's and order ours, I asked about the fluorescent light fixture over the sink / stove. The new Scamps didn't have them. Our salesman informed us they are no longer offered. I asked why, and he told us they weren't worth the all the problems associated with them.
