High-Performance Arcade Pushbuttons with integral miniature gold-plated leaf switches.
The pink gold leaf buttons are being discontinued. We still have brand new stock which can be ordered here: Pink Gold Leaf Concave Arcade Button - New Condition - End Of Line Colour
No tarnishing nor degradation results in no deterioration in response. The contact leaves and the external connections are fully gold plated.
Leaf switch means no clicking micro-switch.
No Plunger Spring.
The body of the button contains no large spring, resulting in a uniquely low actuation force of 45 grams for the entire button.
This is the difference in button depression for the contact close and open points. On these buttons the position is the same, resulting in maximum repeated actuation performance. On micro-switch buttons this "dead" distance can be up to 1.5 mm.
Most serious gamers prefer the classic concave tops over the convex which are commonly used on Japanese low-inertia buttons.
The limit stop of the button is supported by the button body, not the switch, so no chance of switch damage owing to over-enthusiastic play!
Compact integral design.
No fiddly assembly after fitting through the panel. Totally enclosed leaf-switch contacts.
Despite their performance, these are similar in price to standard arcade buttons and the price is all-inclusive, nothing extra to pay for add-on switch options.
Nut & Thread Fixing.
We have retained the traditional threaded fixing rather than the push-in design of certain other low-inertia buttons, as we believe this gives the most effective permanent mounting in all types of panel up to 19mm (3/4 in). This button will fit securely in a 28mm mounting hole.
These pushbuttons have 2.8mm connector tags.
For I-PAC hand-wired connections, you will need to use wires with 2.8mm crimps.
For Mini-PAC pre-made harnesses, select the 4.8mm types, these fit satisfactorily.

I finished an arcade restore in summer, I used these buttons as I didn't want to have the click of microswitches. I've been playing every other day since and these are really good, they're responsive and feel good. They look really nice and when they're fitted to the control panel, you'd have a hard time distinguishing them from original or a reproduction button. The colours that I used were red and white, they colour match the old leaf switch buttons that I replaced perfectly. I would definitely use them again, I'm looking for an excuse to buy them in orange! Highly recommended.
I use these buttons on my pincab, 2 for flippers and 2 for Magna save, and it feels like true pinball buttons. A must have for arcade fans ;)
As always, perfect service from AWUK. Thank you again.
Very good quality and very nice for an arcade cabinet.
I will change all that annoying "click-click" buttons on my arcade for this type very soon. Great quality. Package arrived fast and in perfect order. Thank you.
I've not used them all yet. My intention was to build hand buttons (like them used by timekeepers) so I had some problem to find suitable knobs. Anyway I tried a couple of the buttons I purchased and they seem very comfortable and reliable. I do appreciate the great choice of colours. Gold Leaf Concave Arcade Button are the one I found available in more than 4 colours and I'm happy with my choice.
I fancied trying a set of these instead of the normal microswitches. The cabinet they were to be fitted in was a vertical cab for shmup games, so the buttons were going to get a good thrashing. They do feel so much smoother, and softer than microswitches with no constant clicking. I would definitely stick to using these in the future
Fantastic piece of equipment although it was not suitable for my pupose. The people at Arcade world were very supportive and helpful, can't praise them enough
Ordered 4 leaf buttons to replace micro switch ones. Great decision. I love them. They work very well and are a great addition to my cabinet....
These are great with no annoying click. Why would you buy microswitched buttons?
