Need Switch Limit Clip

Postby dstates » Wed Feb 26, 2020 6:53 pm

Does anyone have one of these Switch Limit Clips (PN 0411889) or know where I can get one? I'm adding a switch to my piano keys for strobe lights and would like the key to have the limit like the rest of them. I haven't had any luck finding one online.
Thanks,
Doug

Do you want the part that is fastened by the switch mounting nut? The "J" shaped piece.
If so, let me know and I will send you one.

As an alternative to adding a switch-stop on the strobe switch, if you have a rotating beacon or strobe replacing the beacon, you could consider adding a 3-position switch with the beacon-only position up and strobe and beacon position down, with off in the center.

Then, you could leave the switch up so the beacon-only will indicate to others you are ready to start up or that you left the master switch on after shutdown.

Richard,
That would work too. I don't currently have a beacon or strobes so I think I'll just add a switch for the strobes.

You could always go ahead and install a 3-way switch now in case you ever wanted a separate switch position for a beacon/single strobe. Down for strobes on and nothing in the up position. It's easy to see if you do position it up but nothing will happen.

I had Del Lehman wire my landing lights in the up position and taxi lights in the down position on the same switch, off in the center. I needed another switch position when the Pulse-Light was added.

I agree and will be using a three position switch (all of them are three positions switches), but at this time I plan on a separate strobes switch.
