Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

BCA Tracker 2 on/off switch - how tight is yours?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
On my ski trip last week I noticed that the on/off switch on my Tracker 2 seemed to be quite firm/hard to turn on and off. I cant recall it ever being that hard before, but then I don't recall ever paying that much attention to it (so I'm assuming it was easier)

For those that have Tracker 2's how hard are your's to turn on - an easy twist or does it require a bit of a proper twist - if that makes sense!

Cheers

They are pretty firm, a good thing in my eyes unless you have arthritis........

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Mine's easy enough to turn, but not so easy that you could knock it accidentally. I wouldn’t have said it was stiff though.

@BMG, that happened with mine, it got to a stage where I had to use pliers to turn it off at the end of the day. A tiny squirt of wd40 and it was back to normal again.

Our two are both pretty stiff. No way you're turning them off or on by accident as they need some fairly serious torque.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like its fairly normal for the switch to be tight. Interestingly, I emailed BCA about it and they said that the switches are replaceable and offered to send me a new one - although I did email the Head Office in the US so doubt they will send it to me in the UK.

The nice folk at the UK Distributors sent me out a new switch that arrived today. Took two seconds to replace and it feels a million times better. The old switch, now that its off the unit feels ok, so maybe it just got sticky in the grove that the switch runs in. Anyway....its good as new now!

fwiw, i had to get a T2 replaced a few years ago as the switch broke... iirc it was quite stiff beforehand. my other T2, nearly 8 years old now, is fine.

My bro had the switch fall off his T 1 forst time he used it. To be fair he had used it to smash a couple of his ribs at the same time....
