Been after a few of these for ages, There the little Gel bubbles you stick on your pressure pad icons for such as the Minelab Equinox or CTX 3030.
I got them off Fleabay 50 for £4.50 inclusive of P&P :thumbsup:

They're more commonly sold as cupboard bump stops.

Your never gonna believe this Ian but , the moment I put that up , I swear down, I thought " I bet Ian comes in and says " oh you can buy it cheaper here". :lol: I know you by now .
You see The costs not going to bother me Ian. I got them and thats all that mattered. I`m sure if we searched hard enough, we could find them selling for a pound somewhere. Its really not an issue to me., I was just thinking of others and not just myself by putting it up .But...... hey ho .

There’s always a cheaper buy somewhere, you are right Bors :Luv Ya:

I use these on my Deus remote cause the buttons are hard work to press with a cover on and gloves. Please be careful with them though as they can, I believe, put strain on the switch so don’t press too hard :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

What's the idea behind them Pete? Do they just make the buttons easier to push, or do they provide a degree of protection as well?

They are just a standard furniture product that someone is making out are for a specific detector and so have hyped the price. My link just informs others of that and gives an alternative choice. Glad you got what you wanted, that's the main thing. :thumbsup:

It seems that some people find buttons on certain detectors difficult to press. I guess that these raise the buttons making them easier to locate and also prevent surface wear. Horses for courses!
