Looking for a Kellogg Switch hook assembly and mount.

Also looking for a switchboard plug. I have the cord and sleeve but would take it all if needed. The pin had snapped off.

Still in search of this Kellogg switch hook assembly AND this type of switchboard plug. Thanks!


Hey Gary just curious about these Kellog phones
whats wrong with your switchhook?

Gary Z

Hi Stephen,
The contact section has snapped off of the main base and the switch hook is missing the correct screw to the mount. I can get by with just the mount. Attached is the clearer picture that shows the break. I did try some JB wield but there are some pieces missing.
Thanks for asking!,


Is the mount cast iron or machined?
You might see if a local machinist can fabricate the mount for you.


The switch hook probably does not exert a lot of pressure on it. You might give J B Weld a try. Do you know how it broke? That is a awfully strange place for a break. The switchboard plugs come up on eBay now & then or you can find a cord to take the plug off. I had some plugs at one time but I think I sold them all. I will poke around in my parts & stuff over the weekend and see, maybe one left?

You are correct that the switch hook doesn't exert a lot of pressure. I will give the JB wield another try. This phone was part of a traveling display and this is the way I got it from the original owners family.
