    Inside a Slant Detector

    I had to take it apart to find out how this thing works.

    * There are 4 brass contacts and a "weighted" brass washer.
    * It is sealed inside of a plastic enclosure with a rubber seal.
    * The resistance measures 4.64 (4.7)K ohms.
    * There is a U-shaped piece of stainless tubing that the washer slides on in the event the craft were to tip upside down, the washer would slide to one side and make contact on 1 pair of the brass contacts to shut the boat down.
    * It only goes/mounted 1 way. It is labeled on the backside of it.

    You can take it apart, but can you put it back together? J/K I do the same thing with stuff I know nothing about but I always seem to break it or when I get it apart stuff goes flying and I can never figure out how all of the stuff goes back in. I cant wait to hear how this project works out. With the knowledge that you and Rich have it should be easy sailing.

    So is it simple to put back together (after disabling it)?

    I am not disabling mine. If I were to, I would affix a 4.7K ohm resistor across the two leads to "fool" the computer it is still inline.

    If you look closely, there is a small resistor on the top portion of that board inside that slant detector. I am under assumption, it is part of the 4.64K ohms I was reading + the wire resistance.

    The assembly of it is simple, 4 screws that hold the stainless backing to the plactic body.

    looks to me like the easy way to dis arm this switch would be to fill the switch with silicone glue inside with the brass float in the middle and put the cover back on! Unless there was a problem I would only dis arm this device if your riding style was causing the ski to cut off.

    If 2fast is correct you dont even have to go that far. Just take a piece of balsa and wedge a piece in either side so it cant shift. If it is water tight you dont have to worry about the balsa getting wet and if you go to sell it just pull the two little pieces of balsa out. Once the cover is open in would take a sec to pull the wood out instead of pulling globs of silicone out.

    seems to me you should just put silicone over the brass contacts so
    that when the brass ring moves it will not complete the circuit..


    or could you just remove the u-shaped stainless tube and the brass ring alltogether?
