Jump Switches & Adapter Harnesses

ryno65ryno65 Posts: 33 Baller
I am looking to buy some rope switches & Rope Switch Adapter Harnesses.
Can anyone suggest a seller that I could purchase both pieces from, rather than the additional cost of 2 separate shipments from PP & ZO to Australia.

    The rope switch is just a plain ol on off micro switch. Just cut the small connector end off the cable supplied by Perfect Pass and butt connect it into the ZO harness by cutting out the connector in the harness. cut it back about 3" you can save the connector and butt splice back in if you need it in the future. done many of them that way.
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    So @Jody_Seal‌ why not buy one ZO switch and make an adapter to plug it into PP?

    Thanks @Jody_Seal‌ could work for some of our guys.
    We also "borrow" boats regularly for some of our jump events, so ideally need to retain the plug-&-play ease of fitment for some.

    @ryno65‌ how about having both parts shipped to a friend or beer in the US to be boxed up together before being shipped to AUS?

    Radio Shack had the PP connector plug in the store. I'm sure you have electronic supply houses there. You can probably find the microswitches there too. Auto parts stores usually have lots of plugs as well. Order a few spare springs from PP and you can easily rebuild your switches. I love slaloming behind PP Classic with a switch and my water is a bit corrosive so I worked to maintain my switches. It was easy.

    @ryno65‌ Gav Mcmillan found the exact connectors through Middys?? (could be wrong on this) Jarrod Faoro may be able to help you out??

    @DUSkier‌ looks like we have found the ZO-type plugs locally, so I will cut the PP-plug off like @Jody_Seal‌ said & fit the new plug. The leftover tail might end up with the female plug, giving us an adaptor for any PP-users.
    Thanks everyone for your input !
