Our red Horn rocker switch is provided on an (ON)-OFF switch body (ON) meaning momentary.  This switch does not have a light in it, but does have a red lens so it more closely matches other ON-OFF switches with indicator light.

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

This red Horn rocker switch has 2 terminals on the back:

  1. 12V input – terminal 2
  2. 12V output – terminal 3

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:

Our red Horn rocker switch is a contura II style, as pictured above.  Contura II is the one with the small bumps on it.

We also carry this label in contura V style switch here.  The contura V style includes a switch with an independent lamp, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

Typical use for an Horn Red Rocker Switch:

Obviously this would be used for a horn, the red color is meant to stand out quickly to the eye.  This is in case you wind up in a situation where you need to sound the horn quickly and don’t have time to search around or read the labels of each switch.

    Exact fit for my boat, in fact the same as the switches installed when the boat was built. Replaced one switch that was broken and the remaining switches so they would all match.

    Quick service, unplugged the old not working parts, plugged in the new. Piece of cake. My horn now works!

    Web site is easy to use. I really appreciate all the tutorials, blogs and information provided. It gave me the confidence to tackke, and fix, my problem.

    I have not been able to use the new switch accept to test in my yard. The website was easy to use and I received my item quickly.

  4. Kevin Rutt (verified owner)

    The switch worked fine and looks great. I only wish I would’ve replaced all the switches now because the older switches on my consul don’t look as nice. Easy to navigate I will be returning
