Foot switches are used to turn on and off electrical devices and may also provide control over the device's speed and mode of operation. They come with up to three pedals and can have a maintained, momentary, variable, or anti-trip switch action. For maintained action switches, one press of the pedal controls the power, whereas momentary action switches require constant pressure on the pedal for power. Variable action switches (also called foot potentiometers) function similarly to momentary action switches, but also provide control over the connected device's operating speed. Anti-trip action switches require users to release a safety latch before pressing down for momentary action. Foot switches vary in their contact specifications, amp ratings, plugs and receptacles, and material construction to suit different applications, device amperages, plug configurations, and environments. Foot switches are commonly used with power tools, sewing machines, musical instruments, dental equipment, and lighting, and in the construction, laboratory, production, and medical fields, among others.

Quick Rant...I will never understand, why it is so challenging for companies to include the proper wiring installation instructions for products!!! With that said, I hope the following information will help anyone who has already bought or considering buying, this fantastic foot switch.
Please note: As a reminder, the design of this foot switch is to close the electrical circuit when the foot switch is stepped on, thus giving power from the wall outlet to the power tool.
Important: If you are reading this and you are going to follow these steps, please do so at your own risk. You are an adult and should be responsible for your own actions and you should also have the intelligence, without needing a warning label to tell you, that taking a hair dryer that is plugged into a wall outlet, into the shower with you, will result in electrocution and possible death. Play with electricity at your own risk and health.
Steps for Wiring:
1) No wire is included with this switch. You will need to purchase a power cord and hard wire it in. I personally chose a 15ft (16ga) black extension cord from Home Depot.
2) You will need to cut the wire. Being that my wire was 15ft in length, I opted to cut the wire so that I had 12 feet of length that would plug into a wall outlet and the remaining 3 feet of wire was used as the receptacle pig tail in which my tool would plug into. You can vary the lengths based on your needs.
3) From the cut end of each of the two sections of wire, strip off approximately 4 inches of the outer protective jacket.Read more ›
I use this with my Porter Cable 690LRVS Router, which has a switch in an inconvenient location. I also use this with my Gyros rotary tool.
