Product Description

Docking Lights Switch Cover

Genuine Carling Contura II rocker switch cover labeled “Docking Lts.”.  All our covers (called “actuators”) are precision printed with UV stabilized ink.  We only print onto the hard style plastic actuators, not the “soft touch” that melts in the sun and becomes a sticky mess.

This product is the COVER ONLY.  Find an entire replacement Docking Lts. Rocker Switch here.

This Docking Lts. switch cover will fit on any Carling V-series or contura style switch body or base.  That includes contura style bases sold by Carling, Sierra, Blue Sea Systems, Sea-Dog… or a myriad of other brands.

Actuators are SUPER easy to change out.  Your old covers can be removed easily from the switch body from the front of the panel using this actuator removal tool.  Your new Docking Lts. switch cover will pop right back on.  All service done from the front of the panel with NO need to remove the switch (literally a 5 second job here).

How to Determine if it will fit your switches:

  1. Check the “will it fit” tab on this page, if your switch looks like any of these styles, it will fit.
  2. If your switch has a 4 digit part number on the side (behind panel), starting with a “V” (ex: V1D1), it will fit.
  3. If your switch has a removable actuator and is approx: 15/16″ wide and 1 15/16″ tall, it will most likely fit.
  4. When in doubt, Contact us and send us a picture of your existing rocker switches and we’ll tell you.
  5. Have no fear!  If it does not fit it can be returned for a refund in accordance with our return policies.

Contura Styles, lenses and colors:

This Docking Lts. rocker cover is a contura II style, as pictured above.  Contura II is the one with the small bumps on it.  We carry printed contura II’s in red and blue lens options (selection from menu above).  This Docking Lts. rocker cover will have one lens at the top, and is meant to go onto a switch that is illuminated at the top only.

We also carry this label in contura V style here.  Contura V style can be placed onto a two lamp switch, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

Typical use for a Docking Lts. Rocker Cover:


These covers are SUPER popular on boats… so if you’ve reached this page 97% chance that yes… it will fit.

Our Contura II and V switch covers are interchangeable on all Carling V-series switches.  There are many contura styles (II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and XIV), which all look slightly different and have a variety of lens colors and looks.  This cover will replace them all and is a great way to make your dash look new again.


The easiest way to tell is visually.  The most common actuator styles are shown below.  If your switches look similar to this, they will fit.

Contura II III IV and V-min

Contura II’s have 8 small bumps at the top and bottom.  This is the style we print onto.  Lenses can be any variety of colors (white shown here).

Contura III’s have three horizontal lines top and bottom.  This style uses a narrow bar lens only.

Contura V style is slightly rounded… shown here surrounded by contura IV style

Contura IV style has a curved almost banana shape to it.

Markings On Switch:

You’ll have to pull the switch out or crawl under the dash to check this, but matching switches will have several markings:

  • U.S. PAT. 5105059”  one one side, and on the other:
  • Carling Technologies
  • a 4 digit part number starting with a “V” (ex: V1D1)
  • 20A 12V Mexico

If your switch has any of these markings it will fit.

Take A Photo And Ask Us

Feel free to take a photo and email to and we’ll tell you if they will fit.

Try it, and return it if they do not

Remember we have a 45 day no-questions-asked return policy.  If  it does not fit, just return it for a full refund.
