How to connect 4 led lights to a double post single throw switch?
I have 4 LED lights I want to connect to a double pole single throw switch and am wondering how I connect it. I was going to get 2 switches and connect 2 lights to each switch but thought I'd be able to use one of these. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

The only reason you would get such a switch is to run them from two isolated supplies.
If you have only one supply, parallel the poles, or just use one.
If you want to independently control those lights, you need another kind if switch, or another switch.

If you just want to turn them all on together, a single-pole, single throw switch will do. Just connect the LED lamps in parallel (with individual series resistors if these are not built into the lamps).
