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,

 

Mark

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.

Mark,

We ordered the same switches and found them to be way too small as well.  Unfortunately, one of these was meant to be put into use right away.  I am currently in the process (3 days now) of making them work.  I won't know until tomorrow if I was successful or not but all looks positive.  If it works out I will show you what I did when we get to Martinique and update the forum with some photo's.

All the best,

I see the linked items is described as 16mm and same company do
similar switches in 19mm and 25mm sizes.

I wonder if someone could've linked the wrong size by mistake,

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AFJXGZQ - "25mm Mounted Thread"
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075QBJVTS - "for 19mm 3/4" Mounting Hole" but 12v
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BM3AN24 - 19mm 24v

Be careful, this range appear to be available in 12v, 24v and 36v varieties.

Andy.

That mistake would be mine...  I have used these switches  for a couple of projects, and linked the wrong size to my post about windlass switches!

My apologies to those who linked straight through to them.
