Dear SFC Blade,

We’re looking to replace the rubber dust/weather covers on the buttons of the launcher interlock device (LID) without having to replace the entire LID. We couldn’t find a part number or NSN or procedure to replace these covers. The covers really help protect the buttons from the weather when the launchers are kept outside.
Can you help?
Mr. C

Dear Mr. C,

You’re in luck. You can order the covers, known as sealing boots, with NSN 5930-01-570-6480, PN U5125-2.

Once received, follow the LID replacement procedures in the maintenance engineering call (MEC) HERE.
