Switch for Steering Column
 
I'm looking to mount a light switch to the steering column on my cart. Hoping someone can point me to a waterproof switch that mounts well to the column? Looking for the switch to operate a set of low watt LEDs. Any info or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You will probably need to make a bracket,usually the only column switches are for turn-signals.A simple bracket could be made with a muffler clamp and a piece of light-guage aluminum or steel angle.You can dress it up nice,even enclose it to hide the wiring and switch bodies.Hope this helps.:thumbup:

Why you don't just mount the switch in the dash ?

I was going to ask that, but I thought maybe somebody else understood the question better than I did.:help:

I answered according to the question.Personally I would put them in the dash too,but there may be a reason it needs to be on the column,such as a physical / medical condition.:thumbup:

Knew I was going to get that question and the answer is, I need a switch as close as possible to the steering wheel due to a disability reason.

Thanks

If there is nothing off the shelf that anyone is aware of, I will have to make something on the dash work. Can someone point me to some waterproof switches for dash use?

Thanks?

I did, Thank You. Will have to put on my thinking cap and come up with something. It's a brand new cart, so i certainly don't want to cob job it.
