Product Description

Etched Rocker Switch Cover

Laser etched rocker switch cover in Contura V style.  Our etched rocker covers will fit any Carling V-series rocker switch. Being laser etched vice printed allows for a brilliantly night readable switch.

This is the switch cover only.  We also sell the complete backlit rocker switch units here.

This switch cover has text and ISO symbol etched at the top.  This illuminates clearly whenever the light at the top of the switch is on.  It also has an oval lens at the bottom.  This is used as the indicator light if your switch has a second light at the bottom.  If you have single lamp switches, then the oval at the bottom will not illuminate.

Our laser etched rocker covers are a great improvement if you’re replacing your actuators anyway due to ink wearing off.

Switch Cover Features:

  • Genuine Carling Technologies covers – no check knock-offs
  • Superior night illumination – greatly improved over printed switches
  • Easily change covers with this simple tool
  • Laser etched – no ink to ever wear off
  • Contura V style

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.

Our etched switches make a huge difference in readability at night.  See the image below as an example of a printed cover, and an etched cover as we fade into darkness.  These two actuators are on the same switch body… the actuator makes that much of a difference.

    The quality of these switches is great but your timely service is second to none apparently even with small orders. I will continue to shop here first for any of my needs that you have parts for. Thanks!

    These switch covers were a perfect fit and your online information was more than sufficient.

    Big selection of Carling switches. Found one to replace the wiper switch in my 2007 Regal. Works perfect!

    Covers look great and will be much better than the labels I’ve been using. Arrived very quickly. I like the website, a lot of helpful information
