    Rocker switches in Bruno remote controls

    When the local Bruno dealer installed a Stow-Away and Out-Rider in my pickup, the installer suggested I get myself a few rocker switches to keep on hand in case one of the switches in the remotes goes out. Well, it didn't take long, but I think (and hope for repair cost purposes) one of them in the Stow-Away might have gone out. Anyone happen to know where I can purchase this part? I took pictures of the switch and have been trying to match it to something online, but haven't got anything nailed down just yet. I'm attaching a few pictures of what I'm talking about.

    I found replacement switches for the Out-Rider remote (pendant) for sale on ebay here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/THREE-3-Bru...72.m2749.l2649, but I don't know much longer those will be available. Still need the Stow-Away switches, though.

      This one should be okay if it fits. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Position-...-/182752706161
      I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

        I am on the lookout to buy an entire pendant for my lift as a spare. That way if any part or connection in the pendant fails, I just plug in the new one and be on my way. Then I can repair the old one later when I get home.

          Thanks! Having no experience with switches and not having done a bunch of research, I was trying to find one that directly stated that it was for use with the Bruno lift, but this is probably going to be the way to go. I’m going to try and get some product measurements to try and check on size. The Ebay link you posted is a way better price than they’re likely to charge me at the local United Access!

            That's what I dislike about Bruno. They manufacture CHEAP switches and they are unique to their product. You have to buy them fromBruno or modify the device. I've also found that they won't sell to individuals, onlt dealers. My closest dealer is 110 miles away.

              I think the ebay switch posted is the ticket. You could also try Mouser or Digikey.

                May not be of help but I found this place with best prices, but looks like only handle Braun and Ricon lifts.
                They had best price for my pendant for Ricon and suppose be here today.
                Thay also sell parts to lift as well as just switches in pendant.
                Have you lift brand, model as well as Serial Number when you call. They check with manufacture and verify the correct part.
                If link works it to Braun parts section:
                http://www.buspartsexperts.com/BRAUN_c_54-2.html
                Good Luck!

                        Hey!

                        Thanks for your quick heads-up. I guess I didn’t use the right buzz words. I searched for hand held pendant, Bruno and rocker switch.
                        I have a 13 year old Bruno VPL-6000; original owner… hand held pendant was drenched 2 weeks ago in rain storm while putting power wheelchair into suv. Now it is intermittent at best to try loading/unloading chair. I am looking for 2 replacement rocker switches to enable me to use the wheelchair and lift when I am away from home. Just looking for an exact physical replacement so I can swap out the old switches with a minimum of effort and trouble. Thanks again for responding.

                          nyceshirtz -- I'm a bit confused, the Bruno VPL-6000 is a vertical platform lift.

                          Edit: I think you meant VSI instead of the VPL. Can you post a pic?

                            My mistake. It is a VSL-6000.


                            First pic is the pendant.


                            Second pic will be of op's ebay listing post that recently ended.





                            Could you please help me decide which current ebay listing will fit the constraints listed above(size of footprint of switch)?

                            THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS MY SWITCH HAS 3 PINS, NOT 6.

                            Thanks in advance!

                              Sorry, meant to respond sooner. Have you tried contacting this ebay vendor? I would and ask if they still have any left to sell, or maybe they'll be kind enough to tell you where they got them. I'll bet that Digikey or Mouser sells that switch, you just have to search around, or call them. One thing is for sure, Bruno didn't make those switches, they got them from somewhere. Another thing I'll add is that those switches seldom go bad, it could be a bad connection. I'd take the pendent apart and test the switches.
