    I love this pushbutton and all of its colors. It's the awesomeness of a button with epic colors. Using this for my Ken-bot.

    Existing color options = awesome. More color options = even more awesome!

    Read a comment about these buttons (same model different colors) being hard to solder. I am not the best when it comes to soldering but I took a small piece of a sponge, got it wet, not dripping just wet. Then wrapped the tabs with the sponge. Was able to solder all my buttons with NO problems.

    I'd like to turn this into a latching switch. Can I remove the switch from underneath it and replace it with something to do this?

    can i install a led light in there?

    Bought a bunch of these in various colors. They look great. They seem a little cheaper made than some of the other (much more expensive) buttons I've seen. I have one that sticks a bit on occasion, but for most projects I think these are great.

    How many cycles has this switch been tested to?

    For those that aren't accustomed to measuring...these buttons are huge. Much bigger than your standard radioshack button.

    The metals tabs on this switch are .110" wide. Something like http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=A100914CT-ND might fit as a solderless connector.

    The blue ones are slightly different than the other colors. The transparent blue ring around the button is a separate piece. The other colors have perforations in the threaded area that hold clips on the moving part, but this button's threaded area has no perforations.

    How clicky are these switches? What kind of tactile feedback is there?

    • If you've ever played an arcade game, then it's like that. It clicks, and doesn't have a whole lot of resistance to it.

      • can you please tell me how they work? they need to be pushed hardly or softly? is the sound a little noisy?

        thanks!

        • it takes a pretty soft press, and it just gives a little click. once again, just like an arcade game...

            I'm actually curious about specifics -- compared to more professional name-brand arcade buttons like Sanwa and Seimitsu, where does it stand? I mean, Sanwa buttons tend to be soft, engage easily and bottom out without trouble, while Seimitsu's have a bit of physical resistance right as it reaches its engagement distance, giving you a more firm idea of when the switch is and isn't closed.

    • Member #596922 / about 8 years ago / 1

Works great but does not match picture

The nut on mine was black instead of white. Not really a problem for me just it did not match the pictures.
