Magnetic Kill switch replacement cap - 3D print

Postby bikerpete » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:59 pm

I decided I'd better carry a spare kill switch magnet cap in case the worst happens at an inopportune time.
$25 for a new one, or fire up the CAD, borrow a mate's 3D printer and bingo.

If anyone cares to print more, the link is:

I tweaked the design a bit so a bootlace fits through the hole, avoiding the tiddly bit of string.
Also included a bead to tighten the lanyard on your wrist.
Common 10 x 5mm disc magnet (approx $1) slips in and just melt the lip to hold it.

I found melting the surfaces of the lanyard and squashing them together made a solid & neat join.

I keep a spare on the bike in case the plastic one breaks. Place it on a head bolt.

Great idea!

For anyone who wants to print it, I'd recommend looking at 3dhubs. That way you can get it done locally and probably cheaper.

What filament have you used to print yours? I have had good results with carbon reinforced PLA. I may try print your magnet thing with that and see how it goes.

I bought some of these countersunk magnets for another purpose. So happens they make the bike go and stop too.
A bit of string round the wrist with a stopper knot should work fine.
