    Good day forum members!!

    I am wondering if anyone has put a metal band on their kill switch? If so could you please share?

    If not does anyone have any idea what band may fit?

    Thanks!

    i've had a few attempts with off-the-shelf band swaps and they looked out of place. The Kill Switch needs a special band and the typical off the shelf designs just didn't look right. I've got a project on a few designs with custom made bands rolling in the skunk works amongst my other projects....

    if you figure out/create a band that works let us know! I would love a metal band on the Killswitch.

    I haven't tried it yet but it looks like a Gearbox Ti band will fit. Very close to same band width and face diameter as the Kill Switch. When I first bought the rubber band Gearbox, before they had the bracelet, I was thinking about a metal band for it. The Holeshot was very close to fitting. It would have required a little shaving of the band. Send me the parts and I will make one up for you.

    so would an MM Ti band... but shaving such bands for Kill Switch seems like a wasteful sin

    A MM would require more than shaving, more like cutting. The links for the square watch would look out of place on the round KS.:eek:
