The Double Apex Stealth Button is the OEM+ switching solution. The button feel and finish match perfectly with your Volkswagen’s interior like it was factory equipped.
The kit includes a momentary push button and a 10 amp toggle relay module. This allows two position switching of a power, ground or signal wire.

How It Works:
Basically, it operates like an on/off toggle switch. The relay module contains a 10 amp capable SPDT relay that has three terminals, “Normally Open (NO)”, “Normally Closed (NC)” and “Common (C)”. When vehicle power is first turned on, NC and C are connected. When the button is pushed, NO and C are connected. Pushing the button again will switch the relay back. When vehicle power is turned off the relay will return to the original NC state.
For example, to switch a light on and off you could connect 12V+ to the NO terminal and connect the light’s + wire to the C terminal. When the vehicle is started the light will be off. When the button is pushed the light will turn on. Pushing the button again will turn the light off. If you want the light to come on when the vehicle is started you would connect its + to the NC relay terminal.
When considering your application keep in mind how much current your accessory will draw. If it is more than 10 amps (5 amps for inductive loads, like electric motors and pumps) an additional higher rated relay will be required. Light bars, for example, sometimes require more than 10 amps.
*For exhaust systems and cutouts, this kit will work with most solenoid controlled, vacuum operated exhaust flapper valves. It won’t work with most electric motor driven flapper valves. Electric motors require a special control circuit to prevent damage to the motor. If your exhaust valve can be operated with a simple two position latching toggle switch the Toggle Button Kit can be used. If it uses a different type of switch, like a two position momentary toggle or a remote control, it likely is not compatible.
