The control rod (the rod that connects the BullFrog to your control panel) is sold separately and can be ordered from here.
The movement of the control rod is approximately 1".
Need to mount the BullFrog in a really tight spot?
Check out the TadPole. The TadPole eliminates the control rod mount on the BullFrog. It can even go around corners!
If you are ordering a number of BullFrogs, we recommend that you order a couple of TadPole's for those really tight spots on your layout.
