Five styles of manual controls are constructed of all brass. O-ring seals prevent leakage around controls shaft.

1. Local Control. No pilot house controls. Searchlight has training handle on drum and hand clamps to lock searchlight in any position.

2. Lever-Gear Control. Operates conveniently with one hand. Horizontal movement controlled by pointing lever, vertical by twisting lever. Vertical lock conveniently located on control handle. Ceiling lock clamps horizontal movements.

3. Wheel Control. Upper wheel controls horizontal movements, lower wheel vertical movements. Friction brake holds searchlight in any vertical position. Ceiling lock clamps horizontal movements.

4. Lever Twist-Lock Control. Single lever controls all movements. Spring loaded friction brake holds searchlight in any vertical position which can be easily locked by twisting control handle. Ceiling lock clamps horizontal movements.

5. Distant Mechanical Control (DMC). Similar to lever-gear or wheel control except that control shafts are at right angle to searchlight base.
