Switch Blank Dimensions

Hey would someone pleeeeeaaaase take the time to measure one of the those gray switch blanks down by the foglight switch and give me the dimensions? I'm trying to source a switch for my driving lights and need to know what will fit. I am away from my truck for the next couple of weeks working or I would do it myself.

Here is your chance at a little good karma! Thanks to any good Samaritans willing to help a brother out.

That exact same switch from Oznium can be bought from Del City for $2.83. I ordered all my wired, fuse block, etc from Del City. The spec drawing included in Oznium appears identical to Del City's. I don't have the part number in front of me, but I have the SPDT wired up to my Lightforce 240's on my truck (on/off/on with hi beams).

Del City has a minimum $25 order, IIRC.

Thanks for the lead dude. How did you get a single pole switch to work with a on/off/on with hi beams setup? Don't you need two poles for the two power sources (hi beams/ignition)?

I think of switches as having an input and output to make it easier for me, so with a SPDT, that would be 1 output, 2 inputs.

So, he would've run the output (or common/single pole) to the relay, and the inputs (the two throws) to his headlights and ignition.

For our purposes, the exact same as a DPDT with the line going to the relay combined. Just two less connections to be made.

Manlaan, that is exactly it. I have ignition-hot coming from an add-a-circuit to the top post, a lead coming from my high-beam headlight positive signal to the bottom post, and the center post goes to the relay. Very simple setup!

"Post" meaning the switch terminals.
