I am trying to find a pull switch which will do a double click, so that the first pull will turn on one light and the second pull turn on a second. Does anyone know if such a thing exists and where to get one?? icon_confused.gif

I've never seen one in all my years of sparkying, so I very much doubt it.


Could you not just install two pull switches, one for each light?

I've seen a horse turn into a field icon_lol.gif

edit: after another port:

It could be engineered with a couple of latching relays and a momentary operation pull cord.
I'd need much more port to get a design together...
