Bulk pack of 5 18" BullFrog Control Rods. Save $2.50!

Each control rod kit includes all of the parts that you need to connect one BullFrog turnout control to your control panel, including:

Connecting the control rod is a simple matter of installing the Z Bend connector into the BullFrog, inserting the outer control rod (red) into the BullFrog control rod mount (it is a press fit), and then screwing the inner control rod (yellow) into the Z Bend connector.

Control Rod Kit in place.

Control Rod mounted in layout fascia.

The control rod is mounted to the back of your control panel by inserting into a pair of laser-cut bushings glued to the front and back of the fascia. 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.

    I like the control rods and they work well without too much tweaking. Unfortunately, the instructions are inadequate and really need to be redone. I spent hours installing and reinstalling the first one. The star wrench provided doesn't fit in the space illustrated because the threaded link is too long to let you put it in that space. If you put it on the outside of the hole on the BullFrog, it will work much better.

The BullFrog Switch Machine and Accessories

This all-in-one document provides complete instructions for assembling the BullFrog Manual Turnout Control, TadPole Remote Control Rod Mount, Control Rod Hanger/Joiner, Control Rod Kit, The SideWinder, and Decorative Knobs.

The BullFrog Manual Turnout Control

One of the least expensive manual turnout controls available anywhere; the BullFrog offers all the same features as more expensive turnout controls. It includes a full selection of options and accessories. This overview video explains how the system works.

BullFrog Control Rod Kit

The control rod kit includes all of the parts that you will need to connect the BullFrog manual turnout control to your front panel.

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.
