kill switch

Any one out there that is into pulling have any thoughts on how to wire a kill sawitch to the back of the truck. According to our club rules it does not need to be a air cutoff only a kill switch in case of a truck coming unhooked.

I have never messed with one but I think all that you would do is run your ignition wire to the back and open it with a your kill switch. I think some jet skiis are set up with a switch that you tie a string to your life jacket and when you fall off it pulls out the swith and kills the engine. maybe you can use one of those switched on your truck.
