The control rod kit includes all of the parts that you need to connect one BullFrog turnout control to your control panel.

Each kit includes:

Connecting the control rod is a simple matter of installing the Z Bend connector into the BullFrog, inserting the outer control rod (red) into the BullFrog control rod mount (it is a press fit), and then screwing the inner control rod (yellow) into the Z Bend connector.

Control Rod Kit in place.

Control Rod mounted in layout fascia.

The control rod is mounted to the back of your control panel by inserting into a pair of laser cut bushings that are glued to the front and back of the fascia. The knob is then screwed into the end of the yellow control rod. The knob comes unassembled, but can be put together in a few minutes with a bit of white glue.

These Control Rod Kits are great for controlling my BullFrogs. Instead of mounting them directly into the fascia I cut a 2" diameter hole into the fascia which is 3/4" plywood. I then mount another piece of 3/4" plywood behind this hole and install the rod into this piece as per the Fast Tracks instructions. This has the advantage that when the rod is pushed in the knob is flush with the fascia. I really like the new method of anchoring the control rod tube to the fascia, Much easier than the clamp in the previous version. I don't bother with the star wrench. I assemble the knob onto the end of a control rod cut about 1" longer than needed. After cutting the control rod to the required length I tap the end with a 2-56 tap. Now I can just screw the rod onto the Z-Bend connector by twisting the knob. A drop of Piobond locks the rod in place.
