Default LED Toggle Switches

Who makes the LED toggle switches that Cigarette use to use on the dashes? Any reason they went back to the regular toggle switch/ rubber boot?

Not sure who makes them but you can get them from lipship in a variety of colors and finishes.

Poor reliability.

Yup Lip-Ship and water can get in them and short them out. When I changed my rockers out to toggles I wanted to use them but Phil recommended against it, potential for too many problems.

Call him and talk to him though, he'll get you what you want either way.

That's what I figured (water). They look so good though. Wish they made a waterproof version

I could not get cigarette to tell me where they got them prob is the saltwater gets between the toggle and the switch and corrodes the back side of the switch. Its a poor design but they look cool when they work!

I ordered one from Lip Ship today along with a red bezel. I was disappointed that they only offer them in greenish blue illuminated tip? I'm hoping to get the switch and be able to find out who makes them and see if they can get them in red.

Also, does Cigarette not use any dual pole switches? They said they are only available in single pole. I'm re doing the dash on our Donzi and Donzi uses dual pole switches on nav/ ANC switch (on/ off/ on) as well as the engine hatch switch (mom on/ off/ mom on). Thanks.

Check these out!

Not sure if there any good but they look cool and low profile!

My AT has red illumination on the tip, toggle is stainless steel with a red indicator. Is that what you're looking for? I'm pretty sure it's made by Carling. Sorry if the info is too late.

Here are the switches Steve is referring to. These were installed on my A.T. at the factory last winter in a complete rehab of the cockpit. These have red tips and a metal ring.
