    Default Mooer Candy Toppers

    I'm a bit late to the game on this product but I just found them online so just ordered 20 for $20. My feet will definitely thank me for finding these.

    Anyone else using them or something similar? Or is it something you think you could see yourself using?

    I use metal ones for a looping pedal. The one I use has 3 allen screws that keep it on, and they always loosen up after a few days. Hopefully the ones you got won't do that, or use another method to stay on.

    Yes, they are molded to tightly fit on 3dpt size switches, which is the most common type.

    I wanted to avoid the metal set screw ones because I heard that they do tend to come loose.

    Thanks, my stuff doesn't leave my condo, so good thing no one sees any of my gear then!
    The colors are a bit much, but I think they'll work just fine for my needs.

    They were cheap, and I figure I can use some on my many amp switches as well.

    I might go all dainty too and color match them with my four button 5150 III green/blue/red/purple amp switch.

    I got a sh。+ load of single and double 3dpt switch pedals. My dainty shoeless feet will thank me that's for sure!

    I'm wondering if these also protect the switch so that the switch is stressed less because it stops the switch from going the max down every time you stomp on it?

    I'm not sure, but your logic seems accurate. I believe it does reduce the full travel of the switch, so it very well might limit stress on the switch.

    I use these. They're great.

    Only had them for home use for around 6 months so I can't say for longetivity. Thus far they've worked and held perfectly.

    I don't mind the colors. Easy to code your effects with them violet for chorus, blue reverb etc...

    It's also neat when you have pedal that has led close to footswitch: The transparent knob lights up with the particular color so it's really easy even in dark to stomp on right effect.

    How could they limit the travel of the switch? If it doesn’t travel all the way it might not engage the contacts.

    It’s funny how these were first mocked (like Empty Pockets) then adopted, then cloned. I’ll see them on boards with only critical switches, like tap tempo. That makes sense. Also on the Strymon/Boss 500 series to make banking a little easier.
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    I'm not sure yet, but usually the switch is engaged just prior to being fully depressed. The topper may prevent fully mashing the switch down into the pedal with a heavy foot. I've never had a 3dpt switch fail on me, but I know it's a concern for some.

    I’ve had quite a few fail. They (literally) don’t make them like they used to. I love the relay driven bypass like Wampler’s new design.
    Oh no.....

    They don't limit the travel. They're flatter than they look, I don't think it would make a contact with any footswitch.

    Put some Blue Locktite on the set screws, should hold them in place but the blue is still removable.

    Or purple if you're afraid blue is too strong.

    The blue is great for solderless cables too, keeps them from working loose.

    What are Empty Pockets? Is that some sort of soap that helps picks fall out in the wash?

    That website was messed up for me. It has a screen over it that doesn’t let you click anything.

    It was just the manufacturer's site, try this - http://www.loctiteproducts.com/

    But you can buy it at auto parts stores, check the links in my earlier post.
