Switch Tip - Strat Style for 5 Way USA fit

£0.83

About
Plastic switch tip with the larger slot for U.S.A. spec switches such as those made by CRL or Oak. Ideal if you're upgrading your wiring to US spec and need the new switch tip.
Please note that these will not fit import or any other metric switch. 

Fitting info
It is common for US spec switch tips to feel slightly loose on Oak & CRL switches, although there are two slots on these tips where you usually find one side fits better than the other depending on the brand of switch. There are some ways to help sort this simply and a quick search on google will provide you with plenty of 'How-to' guides on helping resolve this, some of which mention glue, Don't use glue!! You'll regret it later down the line should you ever need to remove it again.. T
he easiest and most reliable trick, one I have done myself for over a decade on my strats over the years is to grab some cutters and create a very small notch on the switch tip shaft/lever where the tip pushes on. After doing this you'll find the tip won't accidentally get knocked off and stays put really firmly. But can be removed if needed to for any reason, unlike gluing etc which is a nightmare further down the road. Small notch and it really does stay in place firmly, but can be removed if needed too.

Specs
Available in White, Antique White, Cream, Vintage Mint Green and Black.
For USA CRL or Oak Switches only (USA 4mm)
