 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,

I'm trying to find a switch (toggle or otherwise) that will work with an arduino but can also be mounted onto a bike handlebar.I've been looking online but all I can find are motorcycle switches which are a bit overkill I think. Has anyone come across anything like this?

thanks

How about a  hose clamp and a piece of L-shaped bracket? Clamp the bottom of the bracket to the bar, and drill a hole in the top part to mount the switch with.
Both can be found at your local hardware store.
And a switch too, if you don't mind a big honking AC/motor light switch kind of part.
Or an autoparts store.
