A Miniature Push Button Selector Switch – Clicky Switch for Flashlights (12mm 5-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This switch is a very small 4 position selector switch that can be used for many applications. The selector pole alternately connects to 1 of 3 poles everytime you push the button. The fourth position represents off.
These switches are cheap and are good for DIY projects. Uses are only limited to your imagination and to the mechanical and electrical ratings.
Cons:
The switch is a bit flimsy and does not inspire confidence in it's durability and reliability. As was also mentioned, care must be taken in soldering these because the plastic parts may melt.
Other:
The user would not have to grieve over cost of the item if it is damaged.
Bottomline:
I would recommend this for DIY projects
