Well, that's kinda true
and if you have strange sized ports, getting the tempered glass can be more expensive than Lexan would be.
Mine were odd shape but, they were flat, so cutting the shape was no more a cost factor than cutting a rectangular shape
Also, tempered glass can shatter if hit by a hard object... seen a shackle on flogging genoa do that.... where Lexan would probably survive such a hit.
Hit hard by a hard object......yes, but then again having something that is attached to something that could flog hard enough to break a window, is something I would avoid at all cost, tempered glass is way harder than my head
However, had I been able to find 3/16 MR-10 at a reasonable time frame, I would have gone that route
