You guys are good are replacing parts, but I have replaced the inside plastic switches on my Shockwave, Mini etc so many times it is frustrating.
They always crack right where the screw goes into the bottom part of the switch.

Could a more durable material with perhaps some rubber be used? I have never made it though half a dive season with a Princeton Tec light without the switch breaking and I own 4 of them.

Are there any plans for a new kind of switch for the underwater lights?

How tight should the screws be torqued into the switch?
