Icon5 push button switch

I'm wiring an secondary horn tomorrow but I'm still looking for a switch. just need one with a negative and positive terminal. I'm sure another type of switch aside push button will work but anyone have any suggestions of any they've used?

I'll need to be able to buy it at autozone, advance, or napa tomorrow though

thanks

Autozone didn't show much online but, they may have a better selection in store. Napa has 4 pages for momentary switch's you can look through. Click Link

A Temporary Toggle Switch will work and with the different ones out there, it will fit anyones idea of what looks good.

Oh ya, don’t forget to use a relay for the Horn.

I'm under the impression that you could have just traded that out with the one that came with the truck. It is just a plug & play. I have been looking into doing that myself. Don't like the horn that came with my new 2011

i did this to my car and yeah, theres always an option to use it as the primary but I didn't want to ditch the stock horn.
I'll be running stock superduty horn on my truck when i get it as well as train horns some point next winter
