Question Draper Baronet - inline switch

I just got a used Draper Baronet screen, that has been used in office environment. When it was removed, the cable was cut at the wall, and I'm left only with 4 core cable with no control. I've got some RF control centre that came with it, but I noticed that Drapers originally have an in-line switch for moving screen up/down.
Does anyone know what part number that is, or what other in-line switch I could use? I tried to google it but I only found complete Draper and other screens (Grandview, etc) - and I'm after a separate part...

Could you swap for a 12v trigger box?

I'm looking for an easiest solution, to be honest. My plan is to cut the cable short at the projector end and put there a standard power socket (similar to the ones in PC for example), then connect the cable to it when needed, as I'm using it 3-4 times a month.

The 12v trigger box I got from Allan at Ideal AV was very straight forward to fit. You attached the 4 core cable from the screen one side and a standard 2.5mm twin and earth the other.

To be honest your best bet might be to ring draper or someone like Allan as a draper dealer and asking them to send you a standard switch. I can't see them being that expensive.

That sounds like something I'm after, thanks!
I've already contacted Draper, but ... It's been a while and no reply. To be honest, I have tried in the past to ask them few questions regarding screen material (wanted to order a replacement for a fixed-screen), and got absolutely nowhere with them, so don't expect miracles :D.

Ring them mate. They were extremely helpful when I rang them for something. If not as I say, ring Allan at Ideal AV at I'm sure he'll have a part number.

If not 12v trigger box was about £10 and would do the trick it just means you need a cable from the projector to the box which might be a pain for you.
