SPST N.O. Large Round Game Switch w/Illumination 12V White
What is the external OD on these 'Large Arcade Switches'
I've looked at all of them and would like to buy a selection but I need to know what the OD is on the button part.I am building a game for pre-schoolers and need a large, spring loaded momentary push button switch that can take some abuse.
The overall outside diameter of this switch is 2-1/2".

What makes this a "game switch"?
Does "game switch" mean the kind of pushbutton that appears on arcade machines, with very short travel and heavy-duty enough to withstand being tapped (hard!) hundreds or thousands of times?I have an application where I need a pushbutton with those characteristics -- the button will be tapped repeatedly by a mallet-like device. This "game switch" sounds like it would be suitable, but I hope you can confirm this.
Yes, these switches are designed specifically as replacements for arcade video games and the like. I'm not quite sure I'd recommend using a mallet against them, but they are designed for arcade-style machines.
