This flap handle is a well built, durable, and cost effective alternative to the plain round standard flap toggle switch that exists in most experimental aircraft. This unit is easily installed over the existing toggle switch with the included set screws. This unit is powder coated for a long lasting, durable finish.
Note: This is the Flap Handle Only
Bought this for my RV7A, as others have said this is not plastic and is a single piece ( not two sides screwed together) of powder coated metal. Should last forever Slid over existing toggle switch perfectly. When installing, tighten one side until it touches toggle, then the other, then fully tighten both sides to ensure its secure and even. Does not slip or turn at all. Makes touch and goes much safer as flaps are much easier to find and use without having to look. Best $40 Ive spent in a while.
Well made, easy to install, works perfectly as advertised. Verify that you have the correct size hex key or Allen key to install to avoid a second trip to the airport... -)
Great as usual
Slightly over priced but functions perfectly. I even talked my neighbor into getting one for his plane too. All I had before was the normal toggle switch which is very slippery and I can only imagine will be hard to operate in anything other than perfect flying weather. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has a toggle switch for their flaps.
Well made, should work well in my RV 4
Excellent product I highly recommend to all builders/ owners. Genuinely great design, machining, and finish.
Nice product, well made and fit perfectly
Love this product. Very well made and high quality. It doesnt come with the switch, but fits a standard size toggle. There are many switches to choose from.... IE momentary versus not, so this product couldnt come with a switch. However, it sure makes a nice addition to the panel.

The flap handle mounting hole diameter is about .245 in diameter to fit a standard size toggle.
3/4 inch width.
It would fit but it would rotate with the switch.
This part is just the non-rotating handle that can be added to a traditional toggle switch.
We do not have anything that matches this spec.
