The right tool for the job...
This tool is perfect for removing and installing the McClicky switch and retaining ring. You can do it by hand but a little mechanical advantage goes a long way in making the process easier and faster. The switch must be installed "snug" to make electrical contact.
This new tool is machined in-house and cut from a solid bar 6061-T6 aluminum. We used to sell bent-nose pliers for this purpose, but got tired to dealing with long lead times. Hey, we are a machine shop, so why not make them here?!
The points of the tool engage the slots in the retaining ring (and switch) like a spanner wrench. Nifty right?
