What can I do with this switch?
Whether you’re replacing an existing switch or adding one to a DIY project, this is a great switch to use. The large 20mm button is easy to use for all finger sizes, even when wearing gloves, with its push operation. The switch latches in position and you can tell whether it is off or on from the depression of the button. The switch has a 28mm diameter bezel to let you mount it on a dash or board, and four spade connections for easy and secure connection and disconnection from your circuit. The switch comes with a clear soft plastic cover which clips over the button to give you improved grip and splash proof protection for your switch.

What is DPST?
Double pole single throw (DPST) is a single switch that connects two inputs to two outputs. Each input has its own corresponding outputs. The single throw means that both outputs are on or both off. DPST are used in a wide range of application such as turning two lights on with one switch.
