I'm making a line selector type pedal and without going into too much detail I would like to know if there is a locking footswitch available which switches four things at once kind of like a double dtdp type thing? If this is possible would it be called 4p4t and if these are around does anyone know of a good supplier (UK preffered)?

Thanks

why not use two switches, and put something in between (post of some sort) them to switch them both at once?

super glue a small piece of aluminum or metal of some sort to connect them

Kind of. I looked on there and saw the dpdt locking footswitch which is the thing I want but with twelve connectors on the bottom instead of six.

Would one of you mind explianing to me the whole pole and throw thing, I have an idea but wouldlike to be sure.

the number of lugs 'across', so like, side to side, is the number of poles(three poles on the switch in the picture). theres one throw on either side of each pole, so that means theres two throws, or double throw. therefore, three pole, double throw
