That’s some fancy jumper :D

Regarding RS-Online: I figured that I can't buy from RS-Online because I am a private person. I don't know if that is a Germany exclusive thing because of our VAT or if that is the general case. However, RS-Online informed me that they have another shop for not business related purchases here in Germany: https://www.eibtron.com/epages/eibtron.sf/secd658d4ae1a/?ObjectPath=/Shops/eibtron/Products/279-9847 .. but they are also more expensive. I ended up buying the vertical slider switches from there.

It should be a country specific restriction. I'm also private person, but can freely buy in RS-Online Taiwan. Prices in RS-Online sometimes more expensive than on Mouser. But what i like in RS-Online - their shipment is free. So i can buy for example 5 battery holders only with free shipment. I believe it's also country specific. Probably EU and especially US have big choice of component shops.

About switch:
It's produced by several companies under different part numbers but fully compatible.
for example this switch is the same: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/ ... ND/1981434

Parameters to search the model:
style: DPDT ON-ON
2mm spacing in row
2.54(2.50)mm spacing between rows
~8.2mm between case holes.
Right angle.

I've made pic from datasheet:

so, any switch with the same footprint can be used.

Actually, requirements can be relaxed. Only spacing in row, between rows and right angle required. Even case legs aren't important due to 6 pins. Just make sure it physically fits.

I had the same switch in the beginning, but Digikey has only 3 of them in stock right now. Hopefully, they stock that one up soon, but as you said, there are also multiple other switches with the same footprint. I will update the IO-Board wiki page tomorrow with a new component list and BOM for version 5.x and after that, I will sit down and do the same for the new RTC Board.... that stuff is pretty time-consuming :D
