The dev switch is accessable without opening the device. It is on the right hand side of the device behind the SIM slot cover.

Edit: You can see it right below the SIM slot on the Step 14 teardown picture.

I Have a chrome book and have looked behind the panel where it is supposed to be and there is not a switch there, the hole is but there is not a switch to use?

Any ideas?

From what I've read, the developer switch is only on the CR-48 (Prototype/Developer Chromebook) It isn't found on retail models.

Not according to what's stated in here. http://goo.gl/b2Fl2

Shell access is only available in Dev mode, if it's not included, a lot of people are going to be angry.

The Dev Switch Is On The Right Side Of The Unit, Where The Sim Card Slot Is Located, It's A Switch That Can Be Toggled With A Pin (Paper Clip) Or The Tip Of A Pen.
