Anyone have a Wheel mounted Billet Diverter switch Like Rex? Just wondering what else is out there.
This is what Rex has. I like it. But would like the switch buttons to activate Up & Down. These are left to right from what I can see on the switch.

With the switch in hand you could make a bracket to do what you are looking to do.

Thanks everyone. I had one on the Kachina I know about the cords. Once the Curly cord Stretched out a bit it just hung there. That don't bother me to much. It would be nice to drill out the helm but I want to boat!!!. I'll deal with a cord. I like that Dana one. I just need to find one with a straight or curly covered cord. Ill. PM Dana M. about it.

Awe come on mike. You know i got to roll with the auto this and the auto that:D

The manual ones are right now reaction. This gives me more to b!tch about when crap goes wrong.:p Like last summer when I re-routed my hydro lines to look cleaner but didn't notice that I had placed them just below where my weep holes from the headers shoot out. Well I ended up blowing the line in the down position:|err.

I wish I could mill aluminum at work. I'd make my own housing so the switch would activate up & down.

At advantage back in the 80's we used to gun drill the helm shaft, machine a little grove in the wheel adaptor and then machine the little rectangle hole, or holes if two switches were used, in the two upper spokes of the sterring wheel. That way we didn't need to hang a bracket off the wheel, and the only wires that showed were just about 3 inches of them across the front of the wheel into the grove, (unseen from the drivers seat) it was very clean.
Action industries did our billet stuff back then, they're no longer around. In fact I think Paul passed away.

Yes Sanger Rat. I seen it. I'm looking for a steering wheel mount. Soon I'll post a video that shows the waters I run in. The one toggle switch mounted on the side is OK but I would rather have it on the wheel so I can keep both hands on the wheel.
