Great idea, but I still don't see what's so hard about removing the #4 fuse.. put a small pair of needle nose pliers in your glove box.

to the OP ,you said you broke both of your switches... how did this happen if the bar was there to prevent them from becoming damaged... im quite confused...

Problem with that is it also disables warning buzzer for headlight being on. So, down South one has to drive with headlights on when raining. You can leave the headlight on easily when you leave for lunch or get back. Almost had run down the battery.

Do you make it a habit to drive with the doors off in the rain?

No, but I use the switch to turn "off" the #4 fuse when I have doors open for a long time to save battery from lightening up interior light, e.g., loading, unloading, working on my rig, etc. Then, I would forget to toggle the switch back on. So, when I use headlight during daytime I end up leaving it off. I now try to remember to turn the toggle switch back on.

Thanks for the compliment. I figure a clean job prevents problems further down the line.
I like the switch for the domes/warning chime, I probably use it 20 times on a trail run at night, doors on or off.

Thanks for the compliments guys, much appreciated

I was bored one day and figured I'd try it cause I saw those little brackets in the drawer, figured they'd do the trick. And I was sick of wedging my hand a pliers behind the glove box to pull that fuse.

The reason the switches broke is the arc in the bracket. When I closed the door it pushed them in further than they are supposed to be.

I ride with my lights on in every vehicle I drive, it's just my common practice to shut them off when I shut the vehicle off. I am sure we all know it's the law to ride with your lights on in PA thru construction zones, when it's raining, etc.....and PA is in constant state of road construction...LOL So I just got used to turning them on when I get in and shutting them off when I get out.

why doesnt anyone put that number four fuse on a switch? just flip it off when the doors are off...seems would be easier to do then keep taking your glove box out?

I hear of a lot of people that do that. If i ever find a switch laying in my garage I might do that, but this was the best price - FREE.....aside from busting the buttons; which will never happen again after I replace them, if I even replace them that is.

Looks so good. I want to do something like that this summer. Is the top strong enough for a tire to be mounted, or a cooler.....you know that kind of thing? Is the measurements hard? I was a metal worker and could get down to the .001 of an inch by sight....but when it comes to wood I am retarded. Any suggestions would be great...
