Original post made by Tom Mercer(Truckerfisher) on November 14, 2002 For what it's worth guys here is a little invention of mine that is inexpensive, simple to build, and I think: Practical. Keep in mind that where I primarily fish is on an old lock that is pretty much just a big concrete platform that I can drive out on and back right up to the waters edge that is the reason I have these mounted in the parallel position. They can easily be mounted in whatever position suits your needs according to the design of your bumper. I have an S-10 Chev Blazer with the wrap around Chrome bumper. The parts you will need are as Follows: 2 ft (or more Of 1 1/4" PVC Pipe.(sched 40 will do and It is cheaper), 2 momentary push button mini switches (mine are radio shack part no.275-1566a) normally closed (in other words, circuit is complete until button is pressed), a roll of 16 gauge wire, tap splices, a toggle switch, and some plastic pull ties. The tools required are: a jig saw (with a hobby blade) or hand coping saw, Needle nose pliers, and soldering gun or Iron. First cut the PVC into 2 12" lengths (or longer if desired) Now measure 3" up and mark line for cutting Here Is were the hobby blade in the jigsaw comes in handy as it only extends 1" below the guide so it will not cut the whole Diameter of the pipe. Cut across the pipe and then simply cut two length-wise cuts to the cross cut. (Confused yet?) It should look like this after cutting: Next, you need to drill a half inch hole at aprox half the distance of the cut area. Notice that I have counter sunk the outside edges of the hole? This can be done with a rasp, file, or pocket knife I did this so that enough of the threads on the switch would extend to put the nut on.
