These white covered foot switches are single direction (One (1) Up Switch & One (1) Down) and also come with a pre-wire ready to be installed. They are suitable for DC electric windlasses running on 12-24 volts, which must be used with a contactor or control box. Also, you can switch its use on the bow or as a second switch station to control operation, that work with all Five Oceans windlass models. The firm hinged cover protects the switch from both accidental operation and from harsh marine environments.
The surface mount foot switch has a simple installation process. All you need to do is open a hole of only 10mm on the deck of the boat where the cables are able to pass through. In order to fix the screws, all that is necessary is just three small holes.

I wanted to be able to control the windlass from the bow area. These footswitches are a lot less expensive than a remote control. I installed a washdown pump at the same time and fed them both from the same 15 Amp breaker. Just finished the installation. So I have no idea of the footswitches' life span.
These are a perfect replacement for the aging foot switch is on my boat which has become old and cracked. The shipping was fantastic and arrived before they were supposed to.
