Author Topic: Yaesu FT-747 side slide plastic lock  (Read 699 times)

I just noticed that my Yaesu FT-747 is missing a plastic right side slide lock.  It must've fallen off somewhere and I just cannot locate it.

I know it is impossible to buy these any longer.  However, I really don't want the right side kept together with duct tape.

Has anyone come up with a makeshift slide lock from a common household object or objects?  It doesn't have to be the same length or color.  Just enough area to hold the right side together.

All ideas welcome!

Go to a local metal shop, they have a brake and can bend up one for you. In fact make two so they match. I think one of the originals may have vent holes in it so be careful.
