Cole Hersee brass, battery disconnect switch
Home away from home

Per another post "AGM 6v Chargers" it was suggested that I install this disconnect switch. The car has this switch already installed and I like it a lot. It was installed by previous owner in the fire wall, under the dash.
Was wondering if there is a rubber cover or boot, available, that I can install over the exposed connection outside on the firewall?
Thanks again for your attention

I'm not aware of a "boot" or cover made specifically for that switch, nor can I recall seeing any such provision on such switches already installed. But if you were concerned, a first wrap of each post connection with heavy rubber electrical insulating tape and then perhaps a cover fabricated from some sheet rubber or an old inner tube shouldn't be much of a challenge. Probably not a bad precaution to take, though I can't recall hearing of any accidents resulting from the exposed connections on properly done installations. Preferably the switch should be installed such that it interrupts the Ground cable, and that automatically limits the potential for problems.

You can buy heat shrink in various diameters. For my battery connections I just covered mine in a couple of layers to form a thick covering.

Harbor Freight sell assortments pretty cheaply.
