If these parts were significantly cheaper, I'd like to have a set to dress up my flap switch and panel, but $70 for the whole kit (flat switch add-on handle plus anti-rotate backing plate) sure is a lot of cheddar.
To everyone......you asked and we listened. We realize that some builders may want this product in a less expensive version, albeit with the same high quality.
So, what we are going to do is offer this product in a third version, which is bare aluminum. This option will only be available for the flap handle/anti rotation plate combo. We will offer this version for $54.95. So far, from the beta tests that we have done with customers, everyone seemed to really like the powdercoat and thought that it added a lot of value and durability to the product. However, our mission is to help homebuilders and work with them and we will do whatever it takes to earn your business.
We are able to offer this at a reduced rate as the powdercoating adds a lot of work for us after we get them back. We have to go back through the parts and clean out the holes and threads and then we test fit all the handles together with the anti rotation plate to make sure that the powdercoating was of uniform thickness and doesn't cause any binding in the tight tolerance we have designed this part to.
