Laser cut ignition (key) switch tool.

I'm hoping this solves the problem of my key set coming loose again. I had this laser cut for me this week. I used a 10 mm socket to tighten it. Seems to be real right now let's see if it stays that way. Click image for larger version

I get it. Toward the end of our last trip I went to start the 310 and no love, the entire switch was turning clockwise with the key. I had a pair of channel locks and was able to tighten the bezel so that the switch stayed put and worked again. The triangular piece would do a better job than the channel locks.

Ok, that makes sense!

Pretty ingenious idea

When I get my laser cut bill I'll let everyone know how much it was and I order more. I'm keeping mine in my glove box.
