Customer Comments

  • What do you need to plug the button into a wall outlet? Thanks.

    • The two metal leads on the side aren’t for a wall outlet. The top one is the Normally Closed connector and the bottom one is the Normally Open connector. There’s another lead on the bottom, which can be seen in the third picture, which is the common connection.

  • Is this momentary?

  • FFFFhhhhyyeeeooooooooooo >> I hope you used a HEX converter to translate that >> next clue >> I have 5 volts but I only need 3.33 volts (Which is my favorite number) but lucky me I found a 5.6K resistor in my pocket… Oooh bubble gum** >> a little bit of reading will bring you through and to, but its in the form of an SMD that will lead you to your next clue….. >> FFFFFHHHhhhhyyyeeeoooooo

A good big dome pushbutton that does what is says

Good dome push button that does what it says, easy to click even if you hit the edges of the button. The button is quite easy to get “bounces” (2 clicks even if you pushed once) so you will probably have to adjust for that in the software or using a capacitor. The led is not very bright so if you wish to have a vinyl print inside the button to give users more information you will probably wan’t to replace the led with something more powerful.

Great button but requires thin mounting surface

The button itself is great, very good quality and works well. There is a plastic nut that can be used to mount and tighten the button to a flat surface. However, the shaft that the nut screws onto is fairly short so you could only mount this on a thin surface (probably ¼ inch thick at most). This would probably be okay for most applications but I was planning on mounting this on ¾ inch thick plywood so I will have to drill holes through the back of the button and use screws.
