Hey guys..

here is the deal. I need to mount my power pole switch on the console. And the spot I wanted to put it used to have a key switch there. But I put a new control set on the boat which included a key built in. So I utilized that key. Now I have a small hole in my console where the other key went with 2 smaller screw holes which held that plate. So If I use the standard switch mount that it comes with I will see 2 small holes on each side and that would look like crapola.

So I figured I would try a piece of starboard to mount the switch. I got a piece and the color of the starboard is not matching my console. And I don't think I could make it look as nice as I would like. So my other option would be to find a switch plate or panel that I could mount in that spot. I could be black I don't care as lt looks like its in place and not hack jobbed. Iv searched on many websites and haven't really found what I wanted. It needs to just house a single switch and be at least 3"x3"

anybody seen anything along those lines?

Thanks!

Corey D. is the man!

As an alternative you can go to a company like Regal plastics and get the plastic you need to make your own. I don't think you need the fuse in the plate due to the fuses Power Pole has in their system. Good luck with your project.

Our company builds custom electronic controls and we frequently need custom switch and name plates that are very similar to what you want. We use D & W nameplate here in Houston and they typically engrave a black plastic plate w/a white sub layer that is ~ 3/16" thick. Call this company that's in the Corpus Christi area http://ccstampworks.com/

They may be able to cut & engrave what you need but you'll need an accurate template for them to work from.
