Works as it should. Installed to control the air going thru my oil cooler. so I can adjust how much or how little air I want to go thru it. To help control the oil temp in the engine on cold days.

This is a nice quality pull cable control. It looks like a plastic knob but as the description says its anodized aluminum. Its perfect for my parking brake control cable.

I used it to replace a non-locking carb heat control. The button was a little difficult to push in at first but now is working perfectly. Instructions warning was very helpful.
