I used this for a replacement part and it was definitely better than the original. Works as advertised!
The button latches easily, the led ring around these buttons looks stellar, good clicky feedback. Overall great product.
The button looks great but to activate the switch the button needs pushed way down into the unit and is difficult to do. I ordered a different size (25mm) and am happy with it.
Bought a few of these to try out.
They are decently made, and easy to wire.
One had the LED go dead after two days of continuous usage at 12v, but the rest are still kicking after a month.
