Default Re: How do you kill the rev. beeping?

I was thinking of the temporary kill switch, like a piushbutton type switch which has to be held down to temporarily silence the beeper myself last night after I went to bed. Figured I would wait til this morning to post the idea, but seems like it's already out there. I am more in favor of a temp. kill switch myself honestly

Your idea of a momentary switch would be a great idea for someone that never plans on shutting it off permanently but... only for that one moment like backing it out of the garage. Great Idea!

its a safety feature.LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE!just when you think nothing will ever happen,it will.my opinion.been using tractors,riding lawn mowers etc. for 30 years.its the kids and pets who are most susceptible to the dangers of a cart backing up.they are there for a reason.sorry for the rant but like Lockman 1,i have seen many accidents caused by things that "wont happen".

The reason that I started this thread was because my 2 and 4 year old sons don't get away from the cart when they hear the buzzer but run for it. I have almost hit them a few times because they ran to the cart.

I also like the idea of a kill switch so when it is late at night at the camp site I can go with out waking anyone up. The reason I got a sparkie was so I didn't make noise.

I have had 4 carts with back up buzzers, took all of them off. Never have had any problems, the electrical tape works really well, if you dont want to install a switch. If you do disconnect the buzzer my best back alarm has always been "move, watch out".

If you back the cart in the garage, it won't beep when you leave.
Simple fix and still safe.

I think the most important purpose for the buzzer is to inform the driver its in rev when 1st starting. Once its moving its no different then moving in forward.

You don't drive forward with your head looking backward! So why drive backward with your head looking forward?????????

Put a piece of electrical tape over the buzzer opening and it will quiet the noise some.

2 of the best suggestions I've heard yet!!!
Backing the cart into your campsite would probably work the best... IMO!

I'll admit... My campsite driveway has a slight incline,
when I'm dropping the dog off at the camper in the evening, But, I'm still not ready to "call it a night"...
I put my cart in neutral, give it a nudge backwards, hop on, and coast down the hill, to the main road.
Then, off I go... without the dog breaking down the camper door to go along!

I realize that most campsites are not on an incline, or even some driveways, for that matter!

But, I'm always thinking "SAFETY FIRST"!!!
So, I'm with Ken on this one!

Again... do what you have to do...
I'm not really sure I want to hear the ramifications, IF something happens because of it...

Except... maybe to smack you in the back of the head, and say "I told you so"!!!
Just pay attention to your surroundings... and be SAFE!

I know this is falling on "Deaf Ears"... but, it's worth a shot!

Good luck!
