I had an SPST on/off switch (click once to switch on, click again to switch off) and I broke it.
Looks like this:

All the stores are closed today and tomorrow and I need it now!
My mind is not working because of all the accumulated rage. Are there any common electronic items that are likely to have these types of switches (so I can disassemble and steal).
I only have an old radio with one of those switches, but I don't think I can take that apart.

Thanks.

That style of switch is typical for the front of a computer these days, although they are only momentary switches. I don't know that I've ever seen that style of switch in anything else.

Damn. Now I have to wait till Monday. Yeah, I need the latching ones.

Strange though. These types of switches seem so useful now that I think about it. But I guess it only fits into 'dumb' machines. Anything else would have an electronically triggered shutdown on a re-press instead of just physically breaking contacts.

Thanks anyway.

When you go looking for one, it'd help if there's at least a manufactuer logo on it, if
not the actual part number. It looks like a pretty common type of push-button switch.
