Description: It’s the end of the world, and you need a button to press. This is it. A 100mm diameter (outside diameter) dome illuminated push button comes with an LED, securing nut and a pre-installed long life horizontal microswitch. Button can also be adjusted to a low profile button by removing the middle ring.

This is by far one of the coolest buttons I own. It has a great click to it, and the LED lights the button very nicely.
I’ve gotten a few of these for different projects like a panic button for the home alarm, Lap timer, dog treat dispenser, etc. It has a good click and an LED to illuminate it. You can change the LED if you want a brighter button.
Bought a red and green one. Made a podium for a family fued game at a Christmas party. They worked great. Good light from LEDs, add a few relays and you have an inexpensive board that the first button hit locks out the other. No arguments on who was first
Sturdy design and simple implementation. Great for any project with people (kids especially) who are going to be hard on it.
I used it as a prop for a video shoot so I needed to disassemble and reconfigure to suit my needs. It literally took a “pounding” and held up nicely (for the 10 hour shoot-day anyway)
I’ve probably used a hundred of these over the years, and 99.9% of the time they’ve worked great. I did have one of them get worn out at a tradeshow after two years due to people repeatedly pounding on it, but besides that, they’ve been totally solid.
