Hello Lio,
I was wondring if you have seen these switches at all? I know a French
company has them on sale but they have no info on their website and I
can'd find any technical documentation for it. It's called coup de
circuit. This is all I know.
The switch is illustrated here:

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Roman,
Is it just an external battery cut off switch?
You should be able to find that sort of thing from any company that
provides kit for the racing/rally world.
I would have thought that Car Builder Solutions
(http://www.nfauto.co.uk) should be able to help.

Thanks Julian. No, I can't find it in the UK and anywhere else. I know
it's there as I can see it in the pictures but no-one seems to know
the specs and suppliers.

Looking back to this, that type of arrangement was usually used for the
on board fire extinguishers, not the power cut out which was usually
handled by something like http://tinyurl.com/manh7.
However you could combine the two - the red pull lever is basically
just a throttle/choke cable and then you can wire it through the hole
in the key to activate the cut off switch.
You can get the cables from here:

Presume the white brackety thing is there to deflect tree branches etc?
What a HR set up IMO! The handle sticks out too far and is too far outboard,
it would be ripped off by the first branch it encountered, white brackety
thing or not!
Use a lower profile switch with a removeable "key" and mount it much further
inboard so it's out of the way but still easily reachable. Mount a second
one in series inside the cabin so you can cut the power from in or out.

Thanks, guys.
I've alrady had a quick disconnect switch but it was deisgned for a
different circuit configuration. Now I have redesigned the circuit and
need a new solution.
First of all, I want to put the disconnect switch outside the cabin to
make it easy to reach in case of emergency. It must be as close to the
batteries as possible but I want to put the handle at the back, above
the rear bumper, not on the bonnet.
Other considerations:
a) simple rotary power switch solutions do not work with dual batteries.
b) the switch also needs to disconnect a third, deep cycle battery
c) I already have a double pole solenoid which takes care of (a) above
d) to meet the requirements, the switch must have three switching
contacts, but the switched current is minimal
d) It must be sealed or be able to be housed in box sealed (at least IP65)
e) due to size such a switch is normally impelmented as a rotary
switch which, in order to be operated by a pull handle, requires
linear to rotary movement conversion =96 an unnecessary added
complication!
Thanks to the pointerss from Julian I can now source the cable with a
pull handle.
Now I need a 3W normally closed push/pull switch rated at 3-5 amp,
IP65 rated Any ideas?
