    Pin Switch Threads

    What are the threads on the pin switch? I managed to lose the nut and quick run through the HW store didn't turn up any obvious fits.

    Thanks.

    RE: Pin Switch Threads

    Hi,
    I cannot find any either. They are metric but I have never figured out what thread. They are very, very small. Unfortunately, as I said, I cannot find a match so I cannot stock nuts. Sorry.

    RE: Pin Switch Threads

    Robert,

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Its what I figured, some very fine metric thread.

    No big deal, I was thinking of switching to the slide switch anyways.

    Pin's neat but easily gets caught on things loading/unloading the fuse from the car when I don't think to remove at the end of the day.

    - Joe.

    Hi Joe,
    I know it does not say this but you can cut the pin off as long as you bevel the end into a cone with at least a 45 degree angle so it does not mangle the contacts inside the jack with a sharp, bunt edge.
