You could mount it on the dash, and give it a smack whenever you need high beams

j/k. I have often wished various vehicles I've had still went with the floor switch for high/low beams, but never really did anything about it. I'll be watching this thread!

I am the anti-electrician. I can't even plug in a lamp without getting shocked & starting a fire. That's why I was asking who had tried it before.

BladeMechanical Actually, I have a foot switch I found in my dad's garage, still in bag. I've thought of using it for some auxilliary lights on my bumper or engine theft switch but never as a dimmer. Laters,

meyers It would be pretty simple just wire it inline with the high beam circuit. I know you can by the generic foot switches, usually right in the parts stores in the "HELP" parts line section

MLaborde Nobody has installed a foot switch as a dual switch?

Has anyone installed a headlight dimmer switch on the floor?

I used to love the dimmer switch being foot operated in my older cars. Has anyone ever installed a 2nd dimmer switch on the floor? I would want to keep the hand switch also.

Possible? How?
