Not quite correct
The description for this is not correct. When leads are UP the contact is open. When leads are down the contact is closed. Think of it as similar to a neon light bulb with a drop of mercury in it. I would limit the voltage to 30V or less, current to not much over 1 amp.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks - we've updated the description.
