Thread: Locking Washers for AV Switches

    Default Locking Washers for AV Switches

    Hello All,

    Does anyone know where to get locking washers that will fit the 12mm and 16mm momentary AV switches that TCSS sells? I am trying to find some for a MHS v1 hilt.

    Thanks in Advance & Happy New Year !!!!

    If you use a locking washer your switch will likely not be flush.
    If you are worried about it becoming loose try a little blue Locktite.
    I use this in all my final assemblies for screws switches, charge-ports.
    With a little muscle and some heat the parts can be dissembled and
    Are not likely to come apart on their own.
    If you absolutely need a Lock washer you could make your own by splitting
    The appropriate size and bending it slightly.....or try Ace Hardware they have all kinds
    of stuff....

    Hi K6gad,

    Thanks for the reply
    I am trying to avoid using any type of glue and I don't think it would end well for me if I tried modifying normal washers.
    I managed to find lock washers for 12mm AV switches and I'min the process of testing them out before I provide a link. Still on the hunt for 16mm Lock washers so I will try Ace Hardware and a few other online places and see what happens.

    it's hardly ideal to buy something just to harvest parts, but the G16 aviation connectors always ship with a locking washer that is the correct size. The connectors are very useful for other things, like chassis disconnects and pixel blade connectors.
