Grainger will be sure to have the switch, just get the manufacturer number
if you can or match up visually, all have drawings and photo plus
dimensions.  Although still expensive at Grainger they will still be 1/8 of
the price the US towers will charge.  I just got a limit switch lever arm
from Grainger Monday and I easily found my limit switch there for a 140
bucks, (not the same as yours).

Since US Tower rarely divulges such information, can anyone who has the 
MCL-100 control box and limiting switches tell me who manufactures the 
switches and their part numbers? I seem to have a faulty upper limit switch 
that will need replacing.

An electrician tried to realign it and get it working but could not do so. I

can move the tower down but not up, except when the electrician bypasses the

upper switch with a jumper in the control box.

I have an HDX-555 and will keep it at 50-ft and not move it again until I 
can secure a replacement for the upper switch. I cannot read the info on my 
switches because the labeling is too marred.

Anyone out there with sharp eyes?
