*IQ = Installs Quickly

The APM HEXSEAL IQ Switch Sealing Boot is designed for applications where it is preferable to retain the original switch’s front-panel mounting nut. This version is made possible by the incorporation of a newly designed bonded concentric mounting nut that features an internal cavity configuration allowing the integral CONCENTRO-NUT to sit on and wrap itself around the existing original switch front panel nut. This enables the two nuts to work in concert when tightened. The IQ Switch Sealing Boot mounting design permits an easy and speedy retrofit, or new OEM installation.

The use of the IQ Sealing Boot prevents any switch disturbance; for example, the undesirable rotation of the switch body and possible stress on its connections. No special tools or O-Rings, washers or adhesives are required. The IQ Switch Sealing Boot design also features a patented flange sealing-rib that fully contacts the front-panel surface, creating a vacuum-seal that protects the mounting hole from gas or liquid seepage contamination. In addition to standard black or gray, any color can be specified to match any panel or to define a control function.
