Customer Comments

  • What’s the dimensions for the mounting hole? Is there a datasheet anywhere?
    Also, these are so cool that I want to buy 5. I don’t know what I’ll use them for, but they’re just that awesome.

    • It’s 12.2mm hole. It is shown in the Dimensional Drawing, but that may have been added after you asked your question. It is intended to be used in a 0.5" hole.

  • Does anyone know where to get an spdt version of this switch?

  • I have 5 of these because I was dumb and ordered more than one, which would have been enough to tell me that the production quality is not the best. I tried using it with the missle switch cover, and the nut strips before it actually is anything resembling tight. Not the highest quality I’ve ever seen, but for less than two bucks, what did you expect?

  • how many leads are on this?

  • Are these as serious and heavy duty as the Toggle Switch and Cover, because I bought one of those and I actually can’t use it much because it needs such a solid mount.

  • Does the handle condom COM-11146 fit this switch?

  • There’s no toggle switch with 2 pairs of prongs? 1, 3, 4… but not 2?!

    • It’s much better to have too many than too few. You can always ignore the extra poles if you don’t need them.

  • Is this in the Eagle sparkfun library? I can’t seem to find it

    • It’s not what one would normally think of as a PCB-mountable switch, so it’s not in the Eagle library. The connections are meant for spade terminals, and you can also solder wires directly to them.

  • Is this switch Rated for AC or DC or both?

    • Should be fine… from the prod. description: “2A at 250V or 4A at 125V” So I wouldn’t give them anything more than that @ DC, but AC should be fine (not a sustained value). You may just want to make sure that the switch itself is insulated from the contacts…

  • These aren’t waterproof are they? Anyone know where I can get some good waterproof switches/pushbuttons?

    • I doubt these are, but a google search would help.

  • Hehehe using this for the master power for my heated build platform for my makerbot!!!

  • I just bought a few of these and these are a lot higher quality than I expected. Very solid feel to them, and a very nice click. The hole is about 11mm in diameter.<br />

    If you get the missile switch cover, you can’t screw it on like in the photo, but rather the base of the actual switch (the top of the screw) should be flush with the upper hex nut, while the lower hex nut secures the switch to the cover. That way the missile switch cover doesn’t bump into the screw area of the switch.

  • If you use the Missile cover, you cant use the On/Off plate show in the picture, not a big deal. You can go a few mm in thickness, the missile cover, nuts, washer take up some space, It will easily go through 3-4 credit cards thick.

  • How thick of material can this be mounted in? Does using the cover with it change this?

    • Not much, and yes.

      Frankly the nut is crap, and will strip if you so much as hand tighten it too hard. But you get what you pay for, etc.
