Default This may seem simple but i need a little help

i'm looking for a way to cut power as i am looking to up the voltage and have heard of sticking solenoids. i am however finding it difficult to find one as i dont know what or how to search/explain what im looking for. so will someone tell me exactly what they are called?or a brand?or what they were origanlly intended for so i can search? i've seen on here the kind of safety shutoff that u simple push or pull a big red button and i've seen what looks like a connector with a loop of wire that u would pull apart if it were to run away. i realize this is probably childs play to u guys but i'm stuck

what you need is a hd solenoid rated at the voltage you are going to have. if you are going to 48v, get a hd one for that and you will be ok. they do have a battery cut off switch that has a large red key, but you still will need the new solenoid. check with scotty at carts unlimited.
they sell the red key one at hf and places like summit racing.

the allbright sw200 is a good high current contactor. chinese clones are available here.

emergency switch

breakaway connectors you've seen are likely anderson sb175 or sb350. link

Question Re: This may seem simple but i need a little help

When you start getting into higher voltages and AMP'S they are called contactors. Lower voltage they are solenoids.

What I used as a kill switch is a 300amp stereo fuse. If my boost solenoid fuses and I don't have my boost switch pushed it will short and the fuse will blow. $12 solution.
