Default Pull switch??

i really want to do some sort of pull switch like an actual train or truck.. i cant seem to find one made for this with a momentary switch. maybe i could modify a lamp switch? make it momentary?

BTW: I am new here had my Shocker S4's for about 4 months.. love them to death, had small issues with them.. nothing big. i will take some pics shortly and post my setup!

Go to auto parts store and buy a momentary switch. in the electrical aisle. I installed one on my brothers truck to blow his grover shutter tones. It works great.

I think you mean like a lanyard the truckers pull on to blow their horns right? If so i've been looking for that too and i can't find anywhere that says how to install one.

It's called a lanyard its a air valve that mounts on one side and you mount the chain on the other side of window frame above door. Or get a momentary electrical switch like I suggested and drill a small hole in the portion of the switch. Use a a long paddle switch.

Default Re: Pull switch??

So..... you guys want a normally open, spring return, 12v switch to operate the solenoid for your horns, huh?........................!

google search: Cole Hersee 9109!

Its a 12 volt, Normally open, pull to close switch (normally off, pull to turn on, release and it automatically goes back to off)
Its about the same size as a momentary push button from the parts store.
It has a stud sticking out with a 3/32" hole to spin one of those ringy dingys you keep keys on through and attach a chain or cable to use as a lanyard.

I spent about 4 years looking for one and just about gave up as theres no way im running air lines through my cab because the second i get everything all buttoned back up, somethings going to leak, just my luck..... So a few weeks ago I was putting a new siren in one of our fire trucks and when i pulled the overhead console down i noticed that the stud that the air horn lanyard was attached to.... HAD A SWITCH ON THE OTHER SIDE!!!!! YAY!!!! so i got the part number and googled it, alas, Cole Hersee 9109. I got mine for 15 bucks from a website called IPS depot. Found em by googling "cole hersee 9109".

Enjoy!
Happy horning!
