I like the option Tomaco attached in post 78. Or maybe a combo to kill both at the same time.
The ones I have seen in the seat box have been countersunk so the neck of the switch and the key itself just stick out of the surface. Have not seen one kicked, some can and do put a sort of u bolt over it to prevent your leg from touching or kicking it inadvertently.

You can use one switch for both winch AND battery/starter/control circuit for dual battery link etc, but keep in mind that if you have to cut that switch for a winch safety reason it will also cut power to those items, and if the fuel stop wiring doesn't bypass this part it will also shut off the car.
