  • You might want to elaborate a bit more. Perhaps provide a screenshot of your solution together with the link. Perhaps an explanation of what you want to achieve. Some more context. I, for one, don't understand what your question is exactly. – Gino van de Staaij May 31 '16 at 10:07
  • if you don't understand from the fiddle, it means it's not really clear for every user, so thanks for your input – caub May 31 '16 at 10:50

  • I've added a screenshot to avoid link rot and future proof the question, if you feel it is unnecessary feel free to roll back (but risk being closed). – DasBeasto May 31 '16 at 17:30

You should probably add a hover state and not have the background be a light grey when off, as that commonly denotes a disabled input.

Also, a checkbox is commonly bordered. Not a must, but it's commonplace.
