The photos show six screw terminals but description says four. Specifications say 1 pole description says Double-Pole. Confusing! It appears to be a center off type switch, Is it center off?
Asked by: BIGOLDTIM
Either you're looking at the wrong description, or it's wrong. This is a double-pole double-throw switch with center off.

Is this a momentary switch that can be used for reversing polarity of a motor?

Is this a momentary switch that can be used for reversing polarity of a motor?
Asked by: TO
This in not a momentary switch, but with a schematic it can be used as a reversing switch. Easy in a DC application, a little more difficult in an AC application.

Unfortunately the selection was limited so I couldn't find the exact switch I needed, but this one was close enough to get the job done. The switch worked as intended. My only complaint is that it is very stiff. Maybe it will loosen up over time.

Parts are no longer available so I figured out how to wire this switch in for 2 different functions. It works perfectly and saved me from buying a new vacuum!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Toggle Switch 20 amp DPDT Toggle Switch: While the switch does operate, it takes an act of congress to toggle it back & forth. I tried spraying lubricant to no avail. These switches are very stiff and very difficult to switch positions. This switch will not work well on any thing fragile (..like thin plastic) because it is so hard to operate. You'll wind up with a big hole where the switch was There were 3 switches - same model, at the Home Depot I went to. I opened all three packages hoping to find one that worked easier. All three were as stiff as the next. I'm hoping the action will smooth out during use, but by that time, it probably won't have much life left in it. Not very pleased with the switch and can not recommend it to any one. Alex B. Griffin, GA
