That looks like a Contura V series actuator, Which will mount to a V series body (the actual switch).

These switch bodies have more possible configurations than I can name off the top of my head.

That being said, we need to know which switch body you're going to use, in order to tell you how to properly wire it.

Carling contura-v switches will generally have 8 or 10 pins on the back. For the most simple switch (SPST, on/off, no light), you'll only use two of those pins. As the switches get more intricate, you need more pins.

The switch that came with the Rigids is an SPST lighted switch.








Have you ever used www.circuitlab.com ?

This might help you show him how you wired yours. (it's free)

You may want to include the part number for the switch body so he knows which one to buy.
the switch which i just ordered says it is a V-series Contura V sealed rocker switch. if it doesnt work, i have other plans to add more lights in the future as i build my truck and can make it work with other sets of lights. worst case it was mentioned above that i can crimp new female connectors of the correct size to have it workout!

What's the part number for the switch you ordered? The first 8 digits of the carling part number will determine what switch you bought.
