Side Post Battery Disconnect Switch
Our patented Side Post Battery Disconnect switch is designed to be used with General Motors style batteries with the connections on the side. A simple twist of a knob provides a convenient way to quickly disconnect and reconnect power from an automotive battery. This switch provides a clean, solid, low profile connection to GM side post batteries. The switch makes it simple to disconnect your battery to work on your vehicle or the knob can be removed to prevent theft. It also works great to eliminate battery drain if you’re storing a vehicle for an extended period of time. Tested to exceed a continuous 200A load.
This switch can be used as an in-line device on the negative side of the battery to break the ground connection. This works well on motorcycles and vehicles that do not use conventional car batteries.
Easy to Install Instructions:
Disconnect ground (-) cable from battery and attach it to mounting flange side of the threaded hole on the switch.
Using the supplied bolt, attach switch to (-) battery post. The mounting flange on the thru-hole must contact the battery post.
Turn black knob fully clockwise to connect battery power. To disconnect power, turn knob 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Knob can be removed for anti-theft.
Keep connections clean and tight to assure optimum performance.
