Is there any reason why you can't use "toggle" as a verb?

"intransitive verb : to switch between two options especially of an electronic device usually by pressing a single button or a simple key combination"

Hi all!
I'm documenting a piece of computer/control
equipment that uses toggle switches. It's been a
long time since I documented toggle switches, and
I don't remember the best way to describe what
you "do" with them. Do you "flip" them? Do you
"move" them to ON or OFF? Do you "turn" them ON
or OFF? I'm sure there's something much better
than these three I've come up with! Can someone help me?
