Description: It’s the end of the world, and you need a button to press. This is it. A 100mm diameter (outside diameter) dome illuminated push button comes with an LED, securing nut and a pre-installed long life horizontal microswitch. Button can also be adjusted to a low profile button by removing the middle ring.

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.
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.
