Rated 3 out of 5
from Requires very hard button press to activateThis could be an excellent switch but I rated it as average due to the very large force required to activate it. I was going to put this in the instrument panel of a John Deere garden tractor which is exposed to low temperatures and I was very concerned about the potential to break the panel due to the force required. I ended up ordering a marine grade switch from another manufacturer which requires the "correct" amount of pressure - not light by not a hard press either. I reviewed all the specifications but I don't recall anything requiring the amount of tactile pressure needed for any switch and didn't expect to have to return this product to PE.
