    You might be screwed on that. I haven't heard anything about them in a while. They site has been down for a while. They might have gone out of business, I'm not sure though. From what I understand they always had a problem with their product and then you could never get the parts you needed from them.

    You need to get a reverse polarity switch .... such as like a power window switch .... I got one at Radio Shack ..... mounted it next to the ignition key .... not a foot switch anymore but the shoot works

    Did a search on google about these switchs as there are like 6 wire inputs to the switch which need to be split n hooked up between the battery, the chute & the switch

    Good Luck

    that guy on ebay wants $50 plus $25 for shipping for a foot switch. i am all about making a profit but damn $75 i will pass . i have decided to just take both chutes to an auto electric shop and let him deal with it. i searched the net for two hours trying to find the switch i needed ,you would think something like that would be easy to find

    DID YOUR SWITCH BREAK OR WHAT? Looking into getting one of these but that scares me if yours is broken and cant find a replacement. I'm worried about it being waterproof. The description says no warranty or anthing implied.
