Killswitch

Ok, this is a really dumb question.
How do I order a killswitch? Do I ask for a killswitch or is there another name? Which companies make them?
To help more I must say that I want to install it to my 470 (TZ/AN configuration).
Does anyone have any installation diagrams?

Re: Killswitch

Just short the output jack with a 'momentary on' switch...
Here is a picture:


Have fun...

Well, that's the functionality you want in the end, but in the diagram shown, the switch completes a circuit between the hot and ground signals at the output jack whenever it's "on", which is what kills the sound.

On a side note, I feel kind of dumb since I never thought of doing it this way. I think I'm going to wire up an extra mini-switch in one of my guitars this way tonight.
