Default Key Switch alternative

Anyone put a different key switch in their club car other than universal one? I know i can get a privacy key switch from my club car dealer for $40 bucks but I see solutions much cheaper. What have you guys used?

It is a 2 pole switch ....So, anything will work. Check out the generic stuff at the local hardware or auto parts store. Any 3 or 4 pole will work too, ya just leave some blank.

Try this listing, just copy and past to ebay. 160306500575 I have two universal key switches, one club car which is on the cart, and one new universal ez-go switch. But that is the problem, they're universal so just about everyone else in Peachtree City has the same key. So I am trying to find something different for a little security other than popping $40 at the CC dealer for a privacy key.

Any keyed on-off switch will work if it can handle the "amps" put through it,
It might be a 48v system but it is on the low amp side of the system as opposed to the high or motor side.
Anyone know what amps the solenoid draws?

Is it long enough to match the club car socket? A cut key I hope and not generic? I guess need to "get in the zone". I bought a Yamaha switch because I likes the plastic/rubber grip on the keys but it was too short to fir on the CC.
