The switch as described previously is shown here. This method was used on the majority of stylophones.
To get at the metal plates for cleaning, carefully remove the circlips from the pegs using a thin knife blade.
The switch in pieces, ready for cleaning. Make sure the plate - which will drop out easily - goes back the right way up.
The 'clicking' sound of the switch is made by the notches passing over these ridges, moulded into the plastic case of the stylophone.
This model shows 'real' switches fitted to a stylophone.
