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.

I was mounting this thing in a high-vibration environment, so I tightened it down by hand with some thread locker, but decided to give it an extra twist with some pliers, because this thing is huge. I’ve done the same thing with many other game / amusement buttons. This one, however, crumbled. I had only intended it to be a big sort of indicator light anyway, so I just mounted it with screws.
So yeah, hand-tighten only.
Sorry to hear that this happened to you. Glad you were able to mount it in a different manner. Happy Hacking
I use these buttons a lot and have never had a problem. They have an LED and resistor inside. They’re set up for 12v, but you can replace the resistor to use other voltages. It can be put into a 3.5" hole, or a 24mm hole. You can take it apart and put a logo or design on the translucent white disk under the colored dome. It lights up pretty bright, uses a decent microswitch, and I’ve only had one fail on me in the hundreds I’ve used. Pretty reliable button at a good price.
