Paul!

Thanks for your answer. What would you estimate to be the minimum diameter of the inner opening?

If the whole thing is "useless" in the end, I will just make the white thing as protection cap which is removed during the dive.

Problem is, that I will be diving in the Atlantic Ocean soon, partially diving from land. Wind and waves can be quite strong, so I want to protect my gear as good as possible (apart from the insurance). So during the dive I don't need the protection really.

Hi Lasse!

Thanks for the fast service with the Z-240 some weeks ago!

Since I have the possibility to make such stuff at home in my workshop, I decided to make my own ones. The saved money I can use for other gear, which is always needed, right! And the ones I made can be used blindly since I can feel the orientation of the button without looking. Handy during night dives. Do not know if this is the case with the red ones since I did not try them. Might be difficult to feel that nodge with 7mm gloves?

Cheers, Wolfgang

Hi Folks!

Here how I solved the problem with the all too small knobs. After failing to remove the existing knobs, I decided to go for "overshots" to the existing ones. I know it should be possible to remove them as shown in this thread, but for some reason I did not manage.

I really got some good input thanks to this thread ...

Material is black POM (Delrin) with two stainless steel screws made to fit

The two screws are ground to fit in length and conical in the end to grip into the holes of the existing knobs

They work wonderfully ... happy diving, Wolfgang
