Switch Pegs are variants of pegs appearing in DK: King of Swing. They appear as a lever with two pegs for handles attached to either a red, green, or blue box. If held onto with both hands, the lever is pulled down, revealing additional Peg Boards or pegs to help Donkey Kong progress through the level. Donkey Kong is able to pull the lever down if the player presses and holds both and while he is on the Switch Peg. They first appear in the level Contraption Cave in the Jungle World.
Switch pegs, also referred to as Switch Handles, return in DK: Jungle Climber, where they function exactly the same. They first appear in the level Glass Labyrinth in Lost Island.

- Xananab: "The Glass Labyrinth sure is a strange place, fanana. You have to pay CLOSE attention, or it's easy to get tricked, fanana! You need to use the switch pegs above to keep going, fanana. Grab the switch pegs with both hands or they won't work work bo bork!"
