The AWUK Gold Leaf style arcade button has the same high performance as the Gold Leaf concave button, but the main difference is that this button has a CONVEX (flat) plunger. This convex style arcade button is ideal for various arcade machine projects and is preferred by fighting game enthusiasts. This button contains no spring, which results in a low actuation force and is perfect for repeated button presses during enthusiastic gameplay!
Leaf switch means no clicking micro-switch.
No tarnishing nor degradation results in no deterioration in response. The contact leaves and the external connections are fully gold plated.
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.
Convex (flat) plunger - Ideal for fighting game enthusiasts.
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.
Effective permanent mounting in all types of panel up to 19mm (3/4 in). This button will fit securely in a 28mm mounting hole. Please see datasheet above for button dimensions.
These buttons require 2.8mm crimped wires for connection.
1 wire for ground connection (CO) and 1 wire for signal connection (NO).
Pre-crimped 2.8mm wires and 2.8mm daisy chain ground harness can be ordered here:
10 x 1 Metre Long Crimped Wires
Daisy Chain Harness
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.

These buttons are absolutely first-rate. Compared to the other arcade buttons I own (Gamerfinger, Seimitsu, Sanwa, iL, Happ, Crown and Hori), I prefer these best. They have a very tactile, easy feel and are ultra responsive.
If you're looking for leaf-switch buttons these are a good choice. Feels durable but a lil' bit plasticky. Good enough for my intended use anyway.
I use a Hori Real Arcade Pro.3 for many years now, back in the day i replaced all original Buttons for Sanwa. This year i started to dislike the performance of the Sanwa buttons and i wanted to try something new. I bought eight buttons (4x Black/ 4x Red) and installed them in me HRAP3. They fit perfect, the look and feel is so nice. They perform Brilliant, much better and quicker than the Sanwa's! I played many hours my favourite games to test the buttons. Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is a real treat with these Buttons. I really don't understand why so many gamers use these loose Seimitsu or Sanwa buttons. I can really encourage every gamer to try these buttons!
I ordered a couple to use as start/select buttons along with eight Seimitsu PS-14-GN, they are comparable in quality and these AWUK buttons are even quieter thanks to the leaf switches, they require a deeper enclosure as the buttons are a bit taller but it's not a problem, I would actually like to try these as the main buttons, they are also quite cheap so a great deal overall.
