A Dick Crabtree is supposed to be an expert at these.

That is his correct home #. Just got off the phone with him. He's the guy to go to for popouts.👍

I agree,

Dick Crabtree does all of my Pop Out Switches. He is also very good with door locks.

High quality work at a very fair price.

Mr. Crabtree, a perfect gentleman, made my intermittenlly malfunctioning original pop-out ignition switch like new as well as providing a new wire in a new armored cable.

My original 1930 Town Sedan passenger door lock, below the handle, was "totally frozen" and I had no door lock keys from the previous owner.

Took a while, but he defrosted my door lock to where it is like new, and provided (2) new original keys.

Just great to be able to lock a parked, temporarily unattended Model A.

I had mine apart a couple mononths ago,the popout can be fixed. If you watch ebay, they are on there once in a while and Bert's had a couple tumbler assemblies but no keys, just to list other options if you want to fix it yourself.

Amazing and rapid response. Thanks guys. I did finally hear back from Mr Crabtree. He told me that what I broke is not repairable, but as you've said, he'll fix it for me,
