Yeah for you Darlene. I just love a "Q". If you remove the cover there is an electrical mount for the battery cable. To test hook your cable to it, ground the unit, touch the positive cable to a battery. Be prepared because that thing has some torque.

When hooking it up you will need a solenoid that will connect the positive cable to the battery. The siren brake will work off the solenoid as well. The siren will ground it's self out when it is mounted.

I just love mine.

Smile mighty Q-2-B siren

glad to see you got the siren,it does work,however,be very careful if
you want to test it.keep your fingers away from the rotor.

people have lost fingertips trying to test sirens!!!!!! when i test
sirens i secure them in a vise,and run the negative cable
to the base of the vise.it makes a good ground and holds the
siren securely for testing.
