Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JiminConroe Easy solution to an inconvient problem
When we moved into our new home, the switch for the disposer was under the sink inside of a cabinet. To run the disposal, you had to open the cabinet door, each under the sink, find the switch, and turn it on, then repeat the process to turn it off. The Insinkerator "sinktop" switch dual outlet is an easy solution to this inconvenience, but Insinkerator is missing a bet, because this can be a cabinet switch as well as a sink top switch.
Since we had granite countertops, drilling a hole to accommodate the sink top switch would be an expensive proposition. Instead, I installed the switch on the facing of the cabinet below the sink so that it is accessible while standing in front of the sink. All this required was that I drill a 1-1/4" hole in the wood cabinet, so that I could install the switch horizontally, instead of vertically. The rest of the installation was pretty much as described in the instructions. I did leave out the o-ring and metal washer, so that the switch fits flush against the cabinet facing. I also ordered the optional oil-rubbed bronze switch to match the rest of the kitchen décor.
The remainder of the installation is as simple as mounting the power unit with two screws under the sink, switching the disposer plug from the outlet to the power unit, connecting the tubing between the switch and the power unit (tube plugs in, no fittings required), and plugging in the power unit. Worked like a charm the first time.
I highly recommend this switch to anyone who has a wall or undercounter switch and wants the convenience of a switch that is readily accessible without opening cabinets and / or reaching for an inconveniently located switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gobop This product is a wonderful solution for non-hard wired switched plugs!
This unit operates with an air switch to operate its outlets - It comes with enough tubing to install the switch button in any convenient place close to the sink and disposer! It comes with two button styles with other options for purchase online! I'm so glad I made this purchase!

Wish I put this in sooner!! Much easier hitting that button then opening up the cabinet door every time to turn on the garbage disposal.

We have a sink in our center island. Brushed nickel tap set. The switch is working great and fits in well with the kitchen - had to buy the separate knob because the standard pack does not include brushed nickel. Mounted the knob on the right of the sink to encourage being away from the unit when turning on.

This product gets wet and doesn't work. Poor design. Started a fire under sink for an electrical arc
