Alps SKCC Tall Cream is a switch in the Alps SKCC series.


The return spring in SKCCAF002A (grey switchplate) is 10.9 mm long, of 0.21 mm gauge wire, and has 9 active turns. This is virtually identical to the spring in black switchplate Alps SKCC Cream, indicating that they do indeed differ solely in keystem height.

Variant SKCCAF002A is notable for having a grey switchplate as well as a ridge within the base to hold the switchplate.

Based on surplus stock held at Standard Supply, production of SKCCAF002A is confirmed to have run to at least June 1987.
