Description: It’s the end of the world, and you need a button to press. This is it. A red economy grade 100mm diameter (outside diameter) dome illuminated push button comes with an LED, securing nut and a long life horizontal microswitch.
Be aware that these are economy grade big dome push buttons, these guys may rattle, have a weaker spring, and may not have as bright of an LED as our standard big dome push buttons. Weak points aside, these buttons still work great and will get the job done.

It may be cheaper and not as sturdy as the more expensive version, but this button still is very functional. I used 3 of these for my sons train crossing guard toy and they could have many purposes other than as buttons. In my project I used all three as light diffusers for LED lighting. They have a very HAL9000 look to them when lit. I used one as an actual button(gasp) for triggering the cycle in my project. It has stood up to the abuse of a 4 year old for better than a year now.
