The Grand Control Box is used for specifically controlling only our Raptor, Super Take Down Raptor, K-Force Micro 21 and our K-Force 27”. The GrandDirect Control Box is a hybrid controller used to control a Mini or Visor Lightbar AND a Traffic Advisor product. As the name suggests, the GranDirect controller merges the functionality of the Grand control and the Direct control into one housing for space saving functionality. It is two switch boxes in one. The Grand Control Box to control the products listed above and the Direct Control Box to control our traffic advisors. Both sides of the control box will need to be taken to a power source, such as a cigarette plug, the battery terminals or an upfitter switch.
Our products will include a power harness. See specific product details as each harness length will vary depending on the product. The length of cable can be found in the product specification list under the product photos on the product page.
Our units have wiring instructions for you to connect your own controller or switch and will not require the purchase of the switch box. Use of an STL control box just simplifies installation due to the included connectors.
