Which OTTRAW switch do I need?

I am wanting to buy a OTTRAW switch (this one, in particular) for just a simple off-on rocker for my Blitzpro. I don't understand all the different options on that page I linked to and I want to make sure I get the right one. I have no other parts at this time so I need the one that comes with everything I need to wire it up. Any help is appreciated.

Matt

Basically any that say SPST (Single pole single throw) will work for what you want. The ones with more options are for all the LEDs on the rockers themselves.

Some are also momentary, what you would use for a train horn or winch controls.

Actually after looking at the link you sent, that's only the rocker it's self, you still need a switch body, one that is SPST

Ok thank you. Directly under the picture, it has the "Rocker Only" option which is I think you're talking about. I think that is if someone had the other parts.

Would I want the next section under that one that says "Single Lighted Switches - SPST OFF/ON" and then whatever color I want the light to be? In other words, if I wanted a SPST with red LED, would the correct part number be V1D1BC0B?

Also, it says below that part number "Three terminal switches with no rear barriers. Use 1/4" female disconnects or VCH housing. (Packard terminals for the rear housing are sold separately)" Which packard terminals would I need from this page? And do you know if the above part number and the correct packard terminals would be all that I need or is there other things I need to get the switch to work?

Do you know which ones you have? Or rather, which parts you actually need for everything?

I will try and call them tomorrow, I think I missed them today because of the time zone difference.

Just call and tell them what you want the switch to do. The guy I spoke with understood (switch upper in amber when truck lights on, green slit when specific light is activated), told me what I needed, and placed the order. He even looked up a couple of the laser etch switches that were not shown online. They have all worked as requested.
