this one now has a delatch force 600 gm one way and 800gm the other. As

easier retrofit fudge perhaps a disc of rubber, sandwiched at either end

the mounting screw, would bind the slider well enough to the chassis and
still allow movement

Does this application have the 230V / 115V legends coloured over with
black paint?

The fix could just be some hot melt glue squirted into and around the
screw driver slot with a small loop of wire or string embedded into it
so the glue wad can be pulled out at a future time if needed.

The ratings are embossed on the sw body but where the pins cme through, so
manufacturer must mark the chassis. For 110/240V selectable equipment only
used in the UK at 240V, I often insert a bent solder tag between such sw and
chassis at a mounting bolt, to lock into place. Too easy for a drunk
musician to change the sw trying to repair faulty kit.
But this use is for a relatively high speaker current slide switch rather
than mains
