I just saw the switches delivered from Amel and new plastic switch sleeves we're delivered with the switches...maybe I can get a photo tomorrow.

Hi all,


I ordered some of the buttons below to have as spares in case the replacement buttons I installed from Vetus fail. However, when they arrived I found they are way too small for the holes in the windlass.



With best regards,

When the rubber boots on mine failed I replaced the external windlass switches with these:



Waterproof, Sealed with o-rings, no exposed rubber to rot in the sun.


If these fail, I'll likely plug the holes permanently and only use my handheld remote, which is a better solution anyway.
