Can you say... "MIR". These buttons are meant for moist and difficult conditions and the rumours whisper of them being used also in cosmic conditions! Made of the best materials available in the Soviet Union, which are metal and bakelite!

Underwater bad guy lairs, jungle antenna bases, East German human experiment labs, entire space stations held together with duct tape... all of these could be found under the Soviet Spehe of Influence and the huge control boards and computers of these places needed proper buttons. Someone made butons according to five-year plans and apparently there was some "excess". Some business-minded warehouse employee saw a chance to earn a buck and sold these off.

The washers around the button can be screwed off, so you can just drill a hole on the platform of your choice and bolt the button on. the operation principle is simple: press the button and contact surfaces engage, lift your finger and the surfaces separate.

Genuine Soviet surplus

The story is the same old classic: these were stocked in some Soviet-governed military base in a country behind the Iron Curtain, and when the Cold War ended, someone found these and "made a fortune" with them. These are all in unused shape, still waiting for their first hot launch!

Varusteleka button guarantee!

This button does not fail! That's why we're prepared to give it a lifetime guarantee of functionality. If your button breaks in use, we will replace as long as we have these in stock. Just send us a frustrating image of the non-functionality, preferably with an accompanying sour text about how this ruined your supervillain fantasies.

i bought one of each of the buttons and I'm pretty impressed, the ones that click really quite click, not for weak fingered westerners it seems.
personally, I'm using them in my computer for a replacement power button, and after testing them they do work perfectly.
also because it isn't very clear on the pictures this in the operation of the buttons I got;
Red with steel frame: 4 Pins on the back for both normally open and normally closed circuits.
red with blue frame: 2 pins with a normally closed operation.
Black with grey Frame: 2 pins with a normally open operation.

as simple as they look I think they will outlive me.

Rakentelin kotona perunatykkiä. Jos ette tiiä miten se toimii niin jonkinlaisells kipinällä sytytetään "polttoainekammioon" suihkutettua hiussuihketta ja palamisreaktio laukaisee piippuun työnnetyn potun. Päädyin tähän (teräsreunaisena) laukaisunapiksi. Hyvin toimii!
