Switch provides solid electrical contact and good tactile feel to confirm closure. Two issues to be aware of. Mechanically the switch does not have any side to side support, and can be damaged by pressing at an angle. So if you use these you’ll want to make sure you pass them through a stationary hole in your enclosure that is well matched to the diameter of the shaft, minimizing lateral movement. Second, the plastic the base is made of is pretty easily melted. So when you solder them onto your PCB, do it quickly. If you need to remove it you’ll need a rework station (hot air), and even then it may be damaged in the process.
