The Switch is an easy to use, waterproof switch built into a a Blue Robotics penetrator which provides a high-pressure seal for your enclosure.
Always inspect the O-rings before inserting the dial. Any dust, hair, or other particles can cause a leak.
Use plastic tools, NOT steel or other hard tools, to remove the O-rings from the aluminum sealing faces. Hard tools can create scrapes that will compromise sealing ability.

Assemble according to the below assembly steps, and the switch will allow you to turn a circuit on and off inside your watertight enclosure without opening it. When the dial is turned all the way clockwise, or bottomed out, the Switch is ON. Turning the dial counter-clockwise one full turn will turn the Switch OFF.
Step 1: Lubricating the O-rings
Use a small amount of silicone grease on the three O-rings for lubrication and place the two smaller ones in the grooves on the Switch dial and the larger one in the groove of the Switch body.
Step 2: Applying the Sticker
Apply the rotation sticker to the top of the dial.
Step 3: Installation on End Cap
Install the Switch into an endcap and tighten the nut by hand or with a wrench.
Step 4: Installation of the Button
Remove the hex nut then install the button into the end of switch on the dry side and hand tighten.
Step 5: Screwing in the Dial
Screw the dial into the Switch body until the button bottoms out, then back off one turn.
Step 6: Attaching the Wires
Push the wire quick connects onto the button terminals.
