    Wondering if a toggle switch is a toggle switch? Or is a Meyers toggle any different?
    This will be for the left / right angling. What I got from one of the auto part shops is a
    on / off / on.
    Any knowledge about this topic and past on would be welcome!

    TY

    As long as it's a double pole double throw momentary switch you can use it. May have to trim the plasic on the harness connector or snip the 6th unneeded pin of the switch for clearance but it will work.

    It looks like those are SPDT and not DPDT. A DPDT will have 6 connections.

    The meyer left right switch is spring return to center (momentary) and really common. The raise/float switch will stay in float and spring back from raise, you won't find this at the hardware store but if you want one there are aftermarkets available for under $15. Or get a momentary one a rig up a spring on your chain to pull the lift arm down a couple more inches after the plow hits the ground...this is what I have done so I can get my slick stick out of float and on to angling. (The slick stick cannot angle and float at the same time like double switches can).

    Not the conrrect one as JC already mentioned. You need a double pole double throw momentary. Like this: Toggle

    A little rough with the paint shop but should be enough to get you want you need...

    Meyer's website also has the wiring diagram, look for stuff that says "Dual Switches"
