Default Uncommon Key Switch

I am wanting to put a unique key switch on my cart. I also want one that will fit the existing hole in the dash. I have found some of these 'uncommon' switches online, but after looking at the pictures of each one, the keys all look identical! I just wonder how 'uncommon' they really are...

Does anyone have one that is like this:

I just went to the local auto parts store and picked up a generic key switch. You are only going to use it as an on/off switch so you don't care if it has an aux or start position. You won't have any wires on those poles anyway. Simple and works great.

Do those switches fit in the Club Car DS dash? The factory switch has a barrel with a flat side that slides into the dash...

Most of them are the same size with a flat side. The one I bought fit my EZGO with no problem. Take your old one with you to the store to be sure.

I've used EZGO keys in Club Cars before as an 'uncommon'. I guess people never think to try a stock key for one brand in another.

It doesn't sound like the uncommon switch is uncommon enough, based on the fact that every EZGO owner can stick their key in it...
