    tape switch mounts?

    After selling my HD AR because I thought I didnt need it, I built another because I was wrong. Now that I have the new MLOK upper, Im trying to find a more elegant way to mount the tape switches on opposing sides (one light, one laser)to the forend. Last time it was a not so elegant mix of black zip ties and glue. Looking to do it better this time.

    Anyone know of any that would fit these tape switches?
    1:
    16mm wide x 8mm thick x 31mm long

    2:
    14mm wide x 3.5mm thick x 49mm long


    I saw these, but not sure they will fit. And there is no spec sheet I can find that tells how big the switches are they are designed for.
    https://www.magpul.com/products/m-lo...uctColor=VO343

    I could always Amazon Prime them and send them back for free if they dont fit, but would rather just buy the right thing first.

    Any other suggestions? I'm not against going the glue route again, but I'd want to epoxy them to a MLOK plate rather than permanently mount them to my handguard. And I want to try to avoid the thickness of adding a rail, then a flat mount to attach to the rail, then glue the switches to that plate. I found a solution for that, but want to avoid the added bulk of the rails.

    EDIT: Replacing the actual tape/button is not an option. That would require pricey new light/laser and Thats not in the budget.

    I still cant figure out what you are actually looking for... But Cloud defense has a Light control system that looks similar to the links that you posted(?).. So you use your own switch... and it works for mlok keymod, pic.

    No, you get it. Thats the kind of thing I'm looking for, thanks.

    Edit: Except you cant just buy the plates. You have to buy the whole system, or a pre-mounted tape switch.

    Gotcha... I always found tape switches to take up too much space and are less then reliable..

    I am looking forward to the Unity Tactical Hot Button.... but thats not what you are looking for.

    The lead time is due to TNVC concentrating on the new model (linked below) that doesn't have the lead time. But I get wanting to keep your current tape switches.
