Customer Comments

  • I just bought one of these, and I must admit I was disappointed for two reasons:

    1. The part you press is smaller than all but my pinky finger, so pushing it in far enough to latch is difficult.

    2. The circuit is completed BEFORE it passes the latching point, so if it fails to latch (most of the time, for me), then it acts like a momentary switch.

    I was going to use this to turn on power to a device, but it is completely unacceptable for this purpose, sending brief pulses of power to my device when it fails to latch.

  • How sensitive is this switch? i.e., how far does the button have to be pushed in to close the circuit?

    • from the product video it looks as if it may go in about amm to latch. this product on this page is latching,so it must be pushed again to turn off whatever it is controlling. (when pushed on, it sits indented from when it is off.) (when it is off it is flush with the mounting surface.) hope this helps.

      • I’ve got one on my desk. To get it to stay down/latched, I’d say you have to push it in about 3mm.

        • good to know. i was trying to guess. are they still waterproof when pressed down?

          • I do believe so- whatever sealing is going on is happening somewhere in the guts. Apparently they are resistant to “strong water jets” so you can even have a Super Soaker fight around it (but it may not be a good choice for scale-model or full-size submarines)
