          would it be TOO DIFFICULT to add a SIMPLE wiring diagram for those of us who don't do things of this nature on a daily basis ?? Even the [*]manufacturers would probably agree......

          Comments about RadioShack DPDT 20-Amp Momentary Flip Switch:

          i'm a model railroader with an HO scale layout. i use the DPDT switch to control my turnouts and they have never failed me yet. i have never had to replace a single switch (wish i could say the same for my turnouts). my only problem is the stores in town only stock 4 at a time and it makes finding enough switches at one time a real pain as i buy 10 - 12 at a time.

            I replaced the rocker switch for my Bronco's tailgate window with this switch. It is working fine. I have had that big window up and down quite a few times and the switch has worked perfectly.

                Comments about RadioShack DPDT 20-Amp Momentary Flip Switch:

                Not made for switching high amperage inductive loads (like motors) as many people here have learned because no toggle switch is. That's what they make relays, contactors and solenoid switches for. Works great for things like lights or turning on relays. My only gripe is the 'frame' integrity is poor for a switch at this price point. It would probably be OK for motors under a couple of amps but anything bigger deserves a relay or you are just going to have inductive kickback pitting and/or welding the contacts on make and break

                      For the price, I would not expect it to last forever. But I would expect it to be good from the start. Right out of the box, the lever usually returns to center when letting go, but the contacts usually stay engaged until you go back and pull the lever a bit more to break them loose. Running 12v, 14 amps for 7 seconds at a time, a handful of times during the day for test purposes. Hopefully the switch lasts until our testing is done.

                        I bought this switch to use a toggle for a small winch. The switch reversed th polarity of a set of solenoids and was well under the rated maximum amps. After a few months of occasional use, the switch hardly works, it rarely clicks in either direction. I should have just bought a nicer model in the first place.

                          Switch has 6 contacts and flips up and down, spring returns to center. When centered, no contacts conduct. When down, 1 & 2 conduct and 4 & 5 conduct.
                          When up, 2 & 3 conduct and 5 & 6 conduct. I had to buy it to find out what it did, and it does not suit my purpose.

                          I like the size of it, and it was durable and felt solid! The main problem was that the mounting spot (threaded) was too small, and I had to rig up another way to hold it.

                              I purchased this swithch in the mornign and I burned it out few hours later after using less than 50 times.
                              The specification on this switch says that maximum voltage and amp are 12V and 20Amp but burned out at 12V and 8Amp.

                              Horrible durability!
