Comments about Blue Sea Systems On/off, 2 Positions, 600 Continuous Amps, 2000 Inrush 1200 Cranking:

This is a solid switch which also looks good in your power control panel.
Easy to operate but still with a positive "click" feel when it reaches On or Off position.
Easy access to the large lugs.
Has 3 lugs which all can be considered either In or Out. When "ON" all are connected, when "OFF" all are separated. Makes it easier to route the cables.
