    highly doubtful as thats a 3 plug box....those are for the 2 plug boxes...

    plus that switch doesn't do anything for your power and ground....IIRC you need to not only provide power and ground for the unit but also at the switch harness too..

    The way i make them is one harness that simply plugs into your unit...your switches, and your battery...very easy...You can make this yourself very easily too...

    Ok so the box gets power and ground, and the switch harness turn the power on or off to the strobes, or the switches slso need yo have power abd ground?

    if i remember correctly those switches plug into the box but need thier own power and ground on the other end........the box also needs its own power and ground...

    why not have a harness that incorporates the switches AND the power and ground into a single plug and play harness that does everything needed to make the strobes work......right?..

    why make the end user buy a fuse holder and extra wires for power and ground....make it all in one harness.....

    thats just how i think it should be done....its how i do it...

    ok I think I get it, bare with me never wired hideaways and I got the set up used with a mix of different stuff. So basically power line to the box and split it to each switch for strobes 1-3 and 2-4 same with the ground?
