Black Push-to-Make Switch

• Attractive push-to-make switch with a large round button in a square bezel

Rating: 1.5A AC 250V
Bezel size: 18 x 18mm
Button diameter: 12.8mm
Panel cut-out: 15mm diameter
Length behind bezel: 18mm (excluding solder terminals)

what is  the connector type for this switch? I'm connecting it to the GPIO pins on a raspberry pi and would rather do it with a pair of jumper wires rather than soldering it. 

Asked by: Matt
I know this is an old question, but the previous answer is incorrect. I have used Miniature Female Spade Connectors (Maplin Code: N22AN) on this switch when I needed to pre-mount the switch then connect the wires afterwards.

Do I have to hold the button down for it to complete the circuit or does it keep the circuit connection once pressed until pressed again? 

Asked by: Jjs15
Yes to complete the circuit the button would have to be pushed and held to keep the circuit completed.
