The BullFrog dual actuator kit includes all the parts you need to switch a single BullFrog from opposite sides of your layout. This type of actuator is typically used on Free-mo modules. However, it can also be used on standard layouts as well.

Each dual actuator kit includes:

  • 1 - Double ended Z Bend Connector
  • 2 - 18" lengths of Control Rod (both outer and inner rods)
  • 2 - Control Rod Retainer Clips
  • 2 - Plain Knob kits
  • 2 - TadPole remote mounts
  • 1 - Installation wrench (To screw the control rod onto the Z bend connector)

Installing the dual actuator kit is a simple matter of installing the double-ended Z Bend connector into the BullFrog, mounting the TadPoles on opposite sides of the BullFrog, inserting the outer control rods (red) into the TadPole mounts, and screwing the inner control rods (yellow) into the Z Bend connector.

The Dual Actuator Kit comes unassembled but can be put together with wood glue in about 5 minutes.

The control rods are mounted to the back of your control panel with a mounting clip. The knob is then screwed into the end of the yellow control rod. The knob comes unassembled but can be put together in a few minutes with a bit of wood glue.

BullFrog Dual Actuator For Free-Mo Layouts

The BullFrog Dual Actuator makes it easy to switch the BullFrog switch machine from both sides of your layout. Designed for Free-mo modules, the actuator can be used on any type of layout where you need to control the BullFrog manual turnout control from two locations.

BullFrog Manual Turnout Control - Stress Testing

Before releasing our new BullFrog manual turnout control, we built this test jig to stress test the design. After 100,000 cycles, the BullFrog showed no significant signs of wear. To simulate switching stress, we restrained the switch wire, which broke after 10,000 cycles, while the BullFrog was no worse for wear.
