Description: This plastic knob accepts a 6mm shaft and has a 15mm outer diameter. They simple press-fit onto a shaft. These are clear so that they can be used with our illuminated rotary encoders.

It is fairly small, and while it was meant to be used on a rotary switch that SparkFun is selling, it also fits perfectly on Alpha Pots with a clear shaft.

let’s all give this knob a round of applause, shall we?
This is a nice knob, but does not fit on my 6mm-shaft encoders. :( Maybe a bad batch? Waiting on customer service to respond.
Edit: My encoder shafts are 5.97mm… Also, I don’t see the point of testing clear knobs on a pot. ;)
Hi, I tested these with some of our 6mm potentiometers and it fits perfectly. Your encoders might have a different spline count as compared to these knobs. Also, please contact us directly if you have future support questions.
