Best Uses

    Comments about Windlass Deck Foot Switches:

    I found that I could rotate the rubber button 180 Degrees to make the DOWN switch an UP switch. The word on the switch cover DOWN is on both switches but is impossible to read with out a magnifier so I don't worry about that. The arrows on the rubber button are very clear as to which button is which. The store had 10 DOWN buttons and no UP buttons.

        Comments about Windlass Deck Foot Switches:

        I wanted both an up down but West marine only had up buttons. After opening one inthe store I found I could just turn the rubber button around and the arrow pointed Down and the other button pointed up. On the plastic cover in very hard to read they both have the word Up. I plan to use a permanent felt pen to write down on one and up on the other.

        Comments about Lewmar Windlass Deck Foot Switches:

        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.

          These switches are used to control up/down of Lewmar H2 windlass, and don't clutter the deck.
