I am working on a game (highspeed) It has a switch 17-1085 (Lower left hideout). I cannot find it anywhere for sale. I was wondering if there was some technique where I can make a custom activating lever out of a paperclip work or something to that effect? I have used them for ball guides before when desperate and you really cant tell. I could probably make the correct activator our of a paperclip. I'm just not sure how I would affix it to the switch. I cant be the only person to have made something like this work and make it look good in the process.

Thanks for your time!
