Unlikely to pass the test of time

By Tom K

About Me Advanced

Pros

  • Easy To Install
  • Includes Long Pigtail

Cons

  • Expensive For What You Ge
  • Poor Design

Best Uses

  • Large Boats
  • Small Boats

Compared to Lewmar original equipment switches (which required a big hole), these switches are easy to install.

However, they are not very well made. The metal contact switch is not potted in anything and relies on a rubber gasket held fast by a thin piece of stainless to insure that water keeps out. The cupped design insures that water will collect at the gasket joint, making this unlikely. The stainless is also mildly magnetic, so is probably of poor quality, so expect crevice corrosion, increasing the likelihood of leaks.

Do yourself a favor and do not use the supplied screws. They are strongly magnetic.
