Question for anyone out there. Is it possible to convert a Model 5301 charger that has a slide on style mount to a twist on key type mount? Where can I order a conversion kit? Is it a difficult process?

Thanks,
Scott K

I asked that question to the folks at United Supply. There is a kit to convert a key to a slide ( old to new ) but no kit to convert slide to key.

I suspect if might be worth a call to them and see if the older parts are available. Then you could just order the individual parts. But I doubt they are not, but it's worth a call.

The conversion is real easy.

Scott I might trade you if you are interested. We have a twist style one but all of ours is slide type. I would rather stick with the slide type personally. Let me know;.

Thanks for the reply but I don't own a slide type charger. I was thinking of buying one on e-bay and then converting if it was possible. All my lamp heads are twist style and it gets to be a pain with three lamps and only one charger.[/quote]
