OTRATTW type rocker switch - On/Off with safety

Anyone know of a U.S. source for this type of switch?

http://www.mudstuff.co.uk/products/e...fety-lock.html

I have it in my head that I could use this as a safety for rewiring my factory lockers. The concept being that I use my own harness to control the front and rear lockers using OTRATTW switches. I don't want to accidentally engage these switches and so I want to build in a safety. The above switch might work, just having a difficult time finding it in the U.S.

To answer your question, I don't know who carries those.

Another possible solution would be to order another OTRATTW switch labled "SAFETY" with a cool logo on it. You could even order this ONE switch in all red LED's or something. Just run the ground for your lights through this switch so your red "Safety" switch would disengage your other light switches. Wouldn't be too hard to do I don't think.

Yeah, going to try using another switch to deliver the power to Pin-2 on both the locker switches. If the safety switch isn't activated, then the two locker switches won't have power. So I accidental activation would require two switches to be pushed. I may also move the safety switch to another location as well.

I ran a covered toggle as master for the two lockers on the CJ. Worked great.

Will do same on JK, just deciding where they panel will go.
