Anyone tried one of these?

I would like to find something of quality. These seem like I could make work, and fit by flattening out the tabs.

Real switches are available from Matty and probably the other specialists.
They aren't cheap but do have black rockers and will fit straight away.

EDIT - Sorry missed the location info.

Ah, thanks. I like Ray. Very helpful.
Uk shipping seems to be hit and miss. Recently, one £120 package was to the west coast of Canada in 3 days. Another of about the same value 30 days, both roughly the same size. Neither incurred any tariffs, which would not have happened from the good old US of A. Though in the past, I have been dinged for about $200 Canadian in imports from the UK. 3 days is faster than a package across our very fine country.

The Canadians and the EU have signed trade agreement to abolish duties, what I am not sure about when all this comes into effect ...

Don't worry about EU Canada trade deal as UK supposed to leaving EU at end of October.
Heaven alone knows what'll happen then!?!
