normaly the input of the 1/4 inch jack is stereo. With the plug in the jack it creates an open path to the battery when the plug is not plugged in it closes the circuit. That is how the this switch is supposed to work.

I have an active electronic Dean bass that has 3 black wires coming in to the switch, and never got it setup right so i take the battery out each time. (thanks dean and your genius engineers!)
