Is there an easy way to intentionally trip a breaker?

Recommended Posts

The heated seat switch is easily bumped. We've drained our battery several times this summer.

I'd like to trip the circuit breaker for the summer (or disconnect the seat). Any idea how to do this? Anyone have a better idea?

guess you could pop the switch out and disconnect it, dunno how to overload the circuit to pop the breaker sounds dangerous.

Rewire so that it only works when key is on?

OldJeep has a good idea, mikeo's idea will work but is not recommended. I would rewire it as oldjeep suggested.

He actually has me curious how mine is wired. I never use it and where my switch is I have no idea how you would ever accidentally hit it. Although my perko is off when the boat is in the garage so I guess it wouldn't matter anyways.
