Cheers chaps - lots of choice there - appreciated.

May as well chuck in another - similar but ideally a slimline inline two pole switch?

Bulgin is the way to go in that case. IP68, 240v rated, 10A. Various configurations & reasonably priced.

Do you need ip rated when unmated? That’s rare and tricky but possible...

Can anyone recommend some waterproof 12v connectors?

One comment to that: if the plan is to use this connector with 12V DC, then check the rating for DC voltage. I'd expect AC rating to be higher than DC rating, this would mainly be for connecting/disconnecting under load and arc-handling capabilities. Once connected, then there's no difference between AC and DC (both will heat up the connectors in the same way).

Bulgin is one of better quality manufacturers.

I would expect there to be an isolating switch in circuit on the positive leg so not disconnecting under load, I suspect low amps anyway so shouldn't be a problem
