battery cutoff switch

After I connected radio straight, battery drains like crazy.
Now I am thinking to install battery cutoff switch.
Suggestions as for vendors, where to get it?

The "Taylor 1036" has worked very well for me.

Hella makes a good disconnect. West Marine (or other boating supply stores) usually have a good selection of battery accessories, cables, terminations etc.

Do you really need a battery disconnect? Sounds like a simple On/Off toggle for your radio ground would do the job.

I think a battery disconnect is a good idea anyway.
