It has 2 male spade connectors sticking out of the side and bottom and has a small plastic button on the top of it which is what actuates the switch.
There are 2 holes diagonally from each other in the corner of the switch for mounting into the housing. These are mounted in a switch housing which is what is actually pressed or pulled by the limit switch mechanism. These switch housing are many times green in color and are threaded for mounting in the motor housing or a housing on top of the lift. This listing is for the switch only and unless your housing is damaged this will make your lift function again. We did picture the switch housing for reference purposes in pictures. The housing is not included in this listing but is available.
Most of the time when these switches fail, they either burn out at the terminal or can stick on and continually run the motor. Your old switch can be tested with a simple continuity test to identify if the switch is the cause of your problems. This switch is Normally open and closes the circuit when pressed.
