Thank You so much for the suggestion. I tied both the switches with the cable tie and installed a separate switch to control the power supply. It works for me . I will post some photos later so that it can be useful for new woodworkers like me. |

Hi Malcolm, although that switch, from that photo seems slightly different to mine, I would not call that a 'trigger switch'. |
To my mind, a trigger switch is built into the handle and is compressed by the fingers holding the handle - like the pistol grip on a hand gun..
Does your switch have the sliding lock to prevent accidental switching on?
I also have 2 Tritons - they are great...

I have not seen a Triton router with a trigger switch.

|kywoodchopper||I don't have that brand, but my Triton router is made the same with the switch. I took the switch apart and there was a small spring and pin. I removed those. Now the router stays on all the time. I plug all of my table mounted routers either into a power strip or a toggle switch mounted on the outside of the router table for easy access. If I am going to use it hand-held (which I seldom do) I can pull the trigger to start and stop it. Hope this helps. Malcolm / Kentucky USA|

Hello Veera, welcome to the forum. |
I have heard that some users clamp the trigger switch in the on position with a cable tie or a piece of velcro.
Do you need constant pressure on BOTH parts of the switch to operate?
You will need a separate on/off switch mounted on the table.
MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE ROUTER BEFORE MAKING ANY CUTTER CHANGES......
