I have been trying to get them from RS for the last month. In Canada they say they are discontinued,by the sounds of coyotehunters they have been discontinued in US now as well.I found some that work well for 30 cents each.
I am glad to see that some people are willing to buy bulk and past the savings to other home cam builders and just look at the wealth of info here on this site. This is one of the best sites on the internet. No I am not running for public office.
Hey guys, I have 30 (two-packs) on order from Radio Shack. I will never use all of these but when I found them, I thought of you guys. I can get 20 more if needed. I will have these this Wednesday. If anybody would like to get some please let me know. All I ask for is that you pay my cost ($1.10 ea.) plus shipping (probably USPS or whatever you prefer) to you. Please, take only what you need so that there's plenty to go around.
Here is a picture of the switch covers. Are they as good as RS covers? Not quite, they do not have the hard base or the o-ring on bottom of cover.
They work well I have been using them for about 3 months now.RS covers cost 4$ for 2(1 red, 1 black) these cost me .45 cents each.They are soft rubber and have a nut inside each one.RS in Canada quit stocking them about 3 months ago
If you can get 20 more you should you wion't have any problems getting rid of them(just be sure they are the right ones before you order more). 1.10 is pretty cheap :smiley-thumbs-up:
I sent an e-mail to RadioShack asking about the covers, this is their reply.
