Carling Switches and accessories are very good quality. Solid dimensionally and properly designed for long use, in my opinion. Aircraft Spruce should carry the quick connect box so we dont have to buy the from Newark Products on line.

Great product. Solid. Dimensionally sound and easy to work with. Suggestion for Aircraft Spruce..... begin to carry the 8-post VCH-01 Quick Connect box for these switches so I dont have to go to Newark Products to buy them.

Gave two stars do to poor description. Needed more info in the description. The (On)-Off SPST was not clearly stated, in fact it is only described in a question buy a user, down in the Q&A. I thought that the (On) described the Light operation on the switch but it turns out it is a momentary On switch. Order two new On-Off SPST switches.

Q: Switch part numbers v1d1-gxxb and v2d1-axob. the word in parentheses, does that mean when the light is on?

No, if the on or off is in parenthesis, for example (on) or (off), that means the function is momentary. If you release it, it will return to the previous position. For example, if you have a switch that is (on) - off - (on), that means that it is off in the middle, if you press it either way it will go on, but when you release it will return to the center off position.
