Nice Button

Reviewer: from LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA USA

This button has a nice non-linear action that gives mechanical feedback of a transition (not like some buttons that I like to call "mushy" where you can't feel when it is actually "pushed"). Plus it has a shallow profile, so it will fit in a smaller box than most other buttons.

The only drawback for hobbyist level application is that it is designed to fit into a "D" sized hole. It will fit in a 1/2" hole, with a slight gap between the material it is mounted in and the button's flange. To get it to mount flush, I drill a 1/2" hole and then use a reamer to widen the hole slightly. The nut threads easily on the shaft and a 5/8" wrench can be used to tighten it.

The relatively wide flange can hide a lot of drilling mistake--another hobbyist's plus.
