Now I get it.....


I thought that the add on price was for just the piece that holds each specific switch and the switches THEN needed to be ordered separately!


Thanks for the replies :) will be placing my order soon!

OK, after a year, I'm starting to have some issues with my GGG EI2 buttons...basically, during some hard play, one or two of them have the switch adapter swing out of place and not enable the button to make contact.  I just tilt up the CP and re-engage the switch adapter and it's fine.  It's not happening on all buttons...just 2 out of the 16 that I have.

I also have a stuck button every once in a while.  I don't think this is a GGG issue, but rather an errant Vodka/Tonic that got spilt down the CP about a year ago.

Otherwise, I've been very happy with the EI2s and the lighting modules.  I do, however, wish that the EI2s had the same tactile feel as the CLASSX buttons.

YMMV.

Hmm...I'm not sure how this could be happening, based on the design.  The fit is normally quite tight.

Which switches?  Have you removed and replaced the switch holder many times?  If so, the locking knubs may be getting worn.

My ei2s have been great for a few years now.

Just a little idea,
I hate to have play between my button and switch so I use a little dab of hot glue. That would also hold the switch holder in place in your situation I would think.
