Worked great when I first got it. Two weeks later, the latching mechanism has failed, turning this into a momentary switch. I couldn’t have actuated the switch more than a few dozen times.
Edit: Pressing the button a few more times has jammed it completely. A broken bit of the latch must have slipped under the button.

Works as described, LED is relatively dull compared to white and blue.
