Battery selector switch moulding

Does anyone know of a cheaper and/or more easily available option to this:
https://www.boatoutfitters.com/batte...tch-box-single

Don't really want to create a mould and lay one up if there is something readily available. But I've failed to find anything.

But I do want a box I can let into my console and operate the switch from the outside.

Ta

Nasher.

Could you not fit the switch inside the console & fit a small waterproof hatch into the console where the switch is, so you can reach inside & operate the switch? Itís not something that youíre going to be doing repeatedly through the day.

Hey PD

My current switch is inside the console and needs replacing.
I could obviously do what you suggest, although it's not that different to what I do at the moment which is to open the main Console door to get to it.

The little cabinet in the link is such a nice neat solution that whilst I'm doing a load of other stuff it seems a shame not to incorporate something similar.

What I will probably end up doing is using something like below and putting a couple of battery volt meters and a USB charging point in there as well.

This is what I purchased for £25 from Seascrew:
12v isolator enclosure
The red knob is removable to deter opportunistic theives.

Thanks Limecc.

That is the sort of thing I'm looking for, but for a 1/2/BOTH/OFF switch, not just an Isolator.

You might be forced to buy that for the enclosure and fit a different switch. Still plenty cheaper than the other you found.

I don't think it will be anywhere near big enough Limecc.
