How Our Switches Are Better:

  1. Genuine Carling switches – We’ll never try and pass off cheap Chinese knock-offs like some of our competitors. You’ve probably seen other sites list a switch as “fits carling”… that’s a red flag.  All our switches and covers are the genuine article.  And like all cheaply made counterfeits, you CAN tell the difference.
  2. Support – We know this product inside and out and are happy to help our customers.  Need help wiring up one of our products, just call: (843) 297-8348
  3. Guarantee – While Carling does not offer a warranty, we’re so confidant in the quality, if your switch breaks or the ink wears off within 2 years, you can return it for a free replacement!
  4. Durable UV stabilized ink – Have trouble with labels wearing off on your switches?  That’s because cheap non-UV stabilized ink was used… you won’t find that here.
  5. Hard cover style – We never use the “soft touch” style that will melt into a sticky mess after a few months in the sun.

Wiring Info & Wiring Diagram

  1. 12V input – terminal 2

  3. negative source – terminal 7

A hard copy of the wiring diagram will be shipped with this switch.  You can also find it in the product images above, or download a PDF wiring diagram here.


Contura Styles, Lenses and Colors:

This Aerator rocker switch is a Contura II style, as pictured above.  Contura II is the one with the small bumps on it.  We carry printed Contura II’s in red and blue lens options (selection from the menu above).

We also carry this label in Contura V style switch here.  The Contura V style includes a two-lamp switch, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

Typical Use for an Aerator Rocker Switch:

Also called recirculate, an aerator is a separate pump that pumps water from your livewell around inside it… adding oxygen as it does so.  This allows the baitfish to continue to breathe.  It’s different from a livewell fill switch, which pumps water in from outside the boat.  Use this aerator switch to provide power to your aerator pump.
