Now in COLOR! Our dress nut for foot switches is ready for action.
A "dress" nut does exactly what the word sounds like -- it dresses up your finished pedal or project for a super-polished look.
To use: Install your foot switch as you normally would, using the switch's mounting nut for a secure fit. Then, just hand-tighten this dress nut over the mounting nut. If you have concerns about the nut becoming loose with age, add some thread-locking fluid to the dress nut's inner thread before mounting.
INSTALLATION NOTE: These nuts perfectly match to a 15/32-32UNS threaded bushing. (See our switch list below for perfect-fit switches.) However, you can use these nuts on pretty much any standard foot switch with some caveats. BEFORE INSTALLING your switch, screw down the dress nut by hand until it gives you some resistance (but don't go any further otherwise you will cross thread your nut or switch bushing). This will show you at what depth to mount the switch so that the dress nut sits flush on the face of the enclosure. Remove the dress nut (obviously), install your switch using all hardware, then hand-tighten the dress nut over the mounting nut. Ta-da! They work great and look awesome!

Don't scratch it! Since these nuts are round and do not have flat sides to accommodate a wrench or pliers, we suggest using a rubber gripping tool (such as a standard kitchen jar grip) to tighten. Just cut a piece small enough to hold the nut, and twist! Another way to protect the nut would be to place a rubber band over the nut before using a wrench or pliers to tighten.
Phew! I can't believe I made it through this entire description without making one single Deez Nutz joke!
