This three wire switch is a common feature on many Waltco gates. It is easy to retrofit on either side of your truck or trailer.  This switch is a direct replacement for the former teardrop-lever switch, as well as the present version.  The rugged two button system is now built in a hard plastic housing to resist corrosion from salt, water, snow, and sand.
