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.
In case you have never used a microswitch or this push button before, here are some links to some tutorials that will help get you started.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.
Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

The Buttons works very nicely. The LED is not that bright, but it can easily be replaced.
When I saw these big buttons. I knew exactly what I was going to make. Anyone for two player Simon Arcade? Check it out at www.pv-tronics.com
I ordered 10 buttons, i actually needed 8 but i ordered 2 spare ones. I am lucky i did that since one was broken on arrival.
They handle the wear and tear of 3000 kids a day at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. our only complaint is the internal light is not interchangeable, we have replaced the microswitch and have back ups but if we want to fix the led we have to buy a whole new button.

And what is the current load?
Does these buttons have a voltage tolerance?
with the middle ring removed for shorter switch... what height is that?
Any chance of making smaller LED illuminated push buttons? Any chance you're carrying these and I haven't noticed? Thank you.
