Best battery disconnect switch?

I installed this battery disconnect switch to prevent a small short in our truck from draining the battery.

It's a well built product that was easy to install.

Hooking up the battery cable to the switch first gives you a little more wiggle room to get things tightened. You have to reach under a heater hose to reach the knob, but it's a whole lot better than jumping the truck every time we need to use it.
