by Erik from Houston, Texas on October 08, 2012
I purchased this switch to replace an antiquated one that was having issues. I hooked this switch right in line with my current wiring and worked like a charm. The ability to kill the engine with yanking the lanyard or just pressing the button worked like designed. Great price and product.

by a Customer from Miami, Florida on August 08, 2011
Been looking to add one of these to my boat, but all of the local marine outlets charge upwards of 15-20 dollars for these. Even taking into account the shipping costs, I saved almost half!

Q:
I have a volvo-penta I/O system and have a three pronged kill switch, where the top prong holds down the button. will this type of switch swap directly and essentially do the same thing? I don't see any kill switches for the volvo-pentas.?
A:
This kill switch is a 2-terminal pronged kill switch so it may be good to contact the manufacture directly to discuss what the 3rd prong on your kill switch is used for in verifying whether this kill switch will work with your application. SeaDog Line: 866-732-3641
Q:
Will the boat start without the clip and lanyard on it?
A:
If it's wired correctly boat will not start unless clip inserted.
Q:
Can this be used for a trolling motor on a Kayak? How is it wired. Would I need additional equipment?
A:
No, it cannot be used for a trolling motor, unfortunately. And no, you would not additional equipment.
