Push on, push off. It works great!
This button looks really cool and sleek. It did take me awhile to wire it up, as I had to search for a wiring diagram, but it was worth it. The glow is a bit intense, which is perfect. The latch works great, as long as you push the button in all the way, which may be difficult for those with larger fingers.
