Battery disconnect on my toad.....

I just finished installing a 100 amp battery disconnect latching relay ....on my Jeep Wrangler. It was getting to be a royal pain to raise the hood and disconnect the battery with the manual blade switch......every time I toad. So I found a system made by Intellitec.....that with a touch of the dash mounted switch.....it triggers the relay....and disconnects my battery. No more lifting the hood .

So far........it works great !

Gee... For a small fraction of the cost there is a company that makes an assembly consisting of a "Fake Fuse" (this is a plug in for a blade fuse that is not a fuse but rather goes to wire pigtails) an In-line fuse holder and a toggle switch.

It disconnects what needs to be disconnected, without loosing the memory in the Engine Control computer or Dash Radio, and works just like your expensive system.

Will it work from inside the vehicle ?...and will it carry the load of a starter motor ? Do you have their web site ?

Thanks
