Title: Electrical switch for a wagon

Abstract: A switch is connected to a wagon for electrically powering the wagon. The wagon has a frame having at least one wheel for movement along a surface. The wagon further has a bar connected to the frame, the bar having a handle. The wagon further has a battery connected to a motor mounted on the wheel for powering the wheel. The switch has a wire shell having a first lead extending therefrom and adapted to be connected to the motor. A pipe member has an insulator ring mounted on the pipe member. The pipe member has a second lead extending therefrom and adapted to be connected to the battery. The wire shell is positioned over the pipe member and ring wherein the ring maintains a space between the wire shell and the pipe member to define an inactivated position. The wire shell is resiliently deflectable to a second position contacting the pipe member to define an activated position wherein an electrical connection is made powering the wheel of the wagon for movement along the surface.
