well the actual truckers ones are the air valve they are pulling on… not a switch the air like is right above the string… but i was thinking of modding a fan switch for the house and make it so it wont click…
It’s called a lanyard its a air valve that mounts on one side and you mount the chain on the other side of window frame above door. Or get a momentary electrical switch like I suggested and drill a small hole in the portion of the switch. Use a a long paddle switch.
So… you guys want a normally open, spring return, 12v switch to operate the solenoid for your horns, huh?..:mad:…:(……:)…:D!
google search: Cole Hersee 9109!
Its a 12 volt, Normally open, pull to close switch (normally off, pull to turn on, release and it automatically goes back to off)
Its about the same size as a momentary push button from the parts store.
It has a stud sticking out with a 3/32" hole to spin one of those ringy dingys you keep keys on through and attach a chain or cable to use as a lanyard.
I spent about 4 years looking for one and just about gave up as theres no way im running air lines through my cab because the second i get everything all buttoned back up, somethings going to leak, just my luck… So a few weeks ago I was putting a new siren in one of our fire trucks and when i pulled the overhead console down i noticed that the stud that the air horn lanyard was attached to… HAD A SWITCH ON THE OTHER SIDE!!! YAY!!! so i got the part number and googled it, alas, Cole Hersee 9109. I got mine for 15 bucks from a website called IPS depot. Found em by googling “cole hersee 9109”.
