Impulse Relays

I am looking for impulse relays.
These relays are acivated / switched on by a short pulse by a push button and deactivated / switched off by another push of the same button. The activating current will be 12 v DC. I just need them Normally Closed.

I found a Dutch website:
impulsrelais

What I need is retailer in Grenada or in Trinidad who has these in stock.

Or, a USA website, to order or to use as an English example for what I am looking for.

Thanks for your time.

Cheers, Len.

You can have them mailed down via US Post Office Priority Mail - takes about one to two weeks to get them. If they are small you can clear them yourself through the main Grenada Post Office.
- - Better yet is to have the folks at Marine Warehouse in Trinidad order them in for you. Give them the information on the company, etc., and they take care of all the import paperwork. Normally they get them wholesale and charge you the retail price to cover their handling costs. When I needed new starter batteries, Marine Warehouse shipped them from Miami and the whole cost was about half what the local Trini electrical battery supplier wanted.

Thanks, I have good experience with MarineWarehouse as well. They really have great shipping rates. Guess Albert Bijl has friends within Tropical or TransCaribe...

Just thought I might find a car parts shop in Trini or St Georges that carries these impulse relays. A lot of modern cars have these built in. But no luck so far.

Cheers,
Len.

Problem in Grenada or Trini with car parts places is that you need a part number from an automobile. The locals are not equipped to deal with a description of the item - it is beyond their abilities. Better to have is shipped/mailed in from the States and be sure of what you are getting.
- - In any case Grenada or Trini - it normally takes 2 weeks to a month to get the item. Trini takes longer if you want the less expensive shipping which is when Marine Warehous in Miami gets enough stuff together they ship LTL via freighter which leaves Miami once a week for the islands.
