      Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/50mA 5.0mm High Tact Switch:

      Despite the fact that the leads were too small to use on a breadboard (as I had intended), I didn't catch the "surface mount" tag so that was my fault. I was able quickly solder some jumper wires onto the leads, but it tended to be a tad difficult due to the small leads. Despite that, it worked great after soldering in my little project. Bottom line: Recommend, but not for a solderless breadboard.

      Fixed a Zircon Stud Sensor

      Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/50mA 5.0mm High Tact Switch:

      I borrowed a Zircon Stud Sensor from a good friend only to discover that the tact switch that controls the power on-off had failed.

      This switch from RS was an excellent match. 1 mm taller than the original, but there was plenty of slop in the push-button assembly to accommodate that.

      This swith is indeed momentary, push-close, release-open. It is also intended for surface mount, so the legs are short. However, I bent them down and they worked OKAY for through-hole in my case.

      Thank you RS for stocking this part.

          This is a tactile surface mount switch. those of you who say the legs are two short should realize that the switches are not meant for breadboards or through hole perferated boards.

                The leads are too short for solderless breadboards, so don't bother using it for that. Broke one off trying to straighten it out.

                      Comments about RadioShack SPST 12VDC/50mA 5.0mm High Tact Switch:

                      These switches are being used to control a portable illumination system. Their size makes them ideal for small, hand held control switch pads. In addition, the switches require quite a press in order to trigger them, thus reducing the chance of an accidental switch press. I'm really impressed with the quality of these switches. Note that you'll need a fine tipped soldering iron to solder the leads.
